I am sitting in my favourite Cafe enjoying a delicious coffee. For some reason this morning I needed a strong coffee. And what nicer way to do that is to go for a walk and stop in here.
Island Cafe is this cute little Cafe located in an outdoor mall near to my place. It’s in walking distance from my place and the staff here are so friendly and always have a kind word to say. I highly recommend this place if you are in South Surrey!
I am taking advantage of quiet time while I can because I officially am back to work ad of Sunday! I’m excited but also sad – I am going to miss my daily routine with my grandson. I will still have part of the afternoon and bath time with him and of course my days off, but it’s been wonderful having so much quality time with him.
So today’s thought is more of a friendly reminder to me, and anyone else who has this happen – if you are working an early shift do NOT drink coffee at 7pm. It WILL keep you awake! It was an awfully long 5 hour shift today, on only 3 hours of sleep. I took a nice long 2 hour nap when I got home, so am feeling MUCH better now!
When you wake up, what is your first thought? Is it – wow I’m so grateful to wake up and I know today is going to be a great day!? Or is it – ugh another day I have to go to work/do something I don’t like. Of course, every day I am sure we have things we don’t want to do or dread doing them (I can name about 5 of mine right off the top of my head) – but I know that there are many other things that I get to do that I enjoy – blogging is one of my favourite things and even if it’s just my Daily Thought, it makes me feel good that I get up and get to do that. I always look at the positive things, and today is no different. So remember, there is always something that can make you appreciate your day – even if it’s just a coffee and a smile from someone you love. Have a great day!
Take some time every morning to sit back, enjoy a beverage (coffee is my choice), and breathe in the new day. My favourite place for my morning coffee is on the balcony, enjoying the sounds of the birds chirping, the sounds of people talking and even the traffic. To me, it means everyone is up, and getting their day started too. Enjoy your day!
