Three Years And Still 'Doodling'.....


Early mornings and hot coffee are a ritual with me. They go together hand-in-hand. And as I so often keep telling S, who gulps his coffee down and rushes out the house, coffee is meant to be savoured. One sip at a time. Slowly.

Early mornings are my quiet time. They're my time to meditate, reflect, read and take life easy. I take my coffee to the patio and watch the world wake up. After sleeping in artificial air-conditioning over the night, the cool, crisp air of the morning is a welcome relief! The grass, awash with dew, seems fresher and greener. And I love the feeling of the sun's first, golden rays falling on my face as I sip coffee! I am at peace with myself and the world. Ahh, bliss!

The little birds are a lesson in energy -- hopping, skipping, flying and waking up to another day. I've become friends with one little fella, especially. I have a coir, window box with marigold plants in the patio. And this little bird has steadfastly torn out most of the coir from the box to build his little nest. At first, I was indignant and annoyed that my little window box was ruined. I was cursing myself for opting coir over plastic. I changed my mind when I saw his little nest in the tree outside my apartment..:) Somehow, I've never been able to capture the same peaceful, quiet feeling later in the day. I guess this is why I am partial to waking up early.

Anyways, I started writing this blog three years back on exactly the same note. I am not going to give you the usual of how I started blogging, how it has changed my life, the wonderful journey that it has been and how many friends I've made online etc...After reading so many well-written such pieces of blog birthdays, I feel at a loss to say anything new!

I've lasted three years. Pat on my back and thanks to loyal readers. And to you, "Doodles", I say:

"Happy Birthday"!

That shows your zeal for writing which is terrific. By the way, I really doubt if the morning people are born or made ?

Yes, definitely thumbs up for coffee!

Congrats!

I fully agree with you on the early morning bliss.

I only wish you posted more frequently. And would like to see if you can make people laugh with your posts more often than present...

All is well that continues well... Keep going!

ah! **british accent** Happy 3rd Birthday to you darling blog and cheers to you my dear friend! and, the older morning post was one of the first I read once I knew you had a blog :)

i've given up morning coffee for two main reasons.. and one of them being, can't drink it fast enough and get to work in time.. so I come back home and am greeted by the bitter-sweet kiss almost every evening! :)

and like prabu karthik said, write some happy things once in a while..

mazeltov!
