Spring chicken or not?

I awoke at 3:15 a.m. and felt fine after six hours sleep. That’s all I need, really. I can go through the whole day without taking a nap, unlike David, who naps frequently. There’s nothing he can do, but live with the fact that he is no longer a spring chicken. Neither am I, for that matter.

Here are a few morning photos that cheered me up:

This plant now has six red anthuriums. The green one at the bottom is slowly dying. When it turns brown, I’ll snip it off with scissors. I water the plant twice a week in the kitchen sink:

I drink five cups of Roy’s Kona Coffee Blend every morning. It’s great with skim milk and ice cubes:

Here’s a shot of my new security alarm keypad. Can you tell which one is the alarm and which one is the a/c control panel? The other items came from Thailand, Hong Kong, India, and Taiwan – all places I have visited:

David woke up later and made me a fantastic brunch:  A banana pancake, which was crispy on the edges and tender and tasty in the middle.  I scarfed it down with maple syrup.  Mahalo, hubby!  Spring chicken or not, you’re the best husband, ever!

    I too am an early riser. That has been my habit since my children were born. The early morning hours belong to me:) I love your little stroll through your home and then to top it off with those pancakes is very sweet:)

    I wish I could get by on six hours of sleep. I don’t nap during the day though.
    You are lucky in love and you should definitely hang on to that guy.

    Let David sleep as long as he wants to, Gigi, as long as he makes breakfast when he awakes!

    I need a full eight or nine hours of sleep to be rested. That banana pancake sounds really delicious. You are a lucky woman, Gigi! 🙂

    I’ve heard that you need less sleep when you get older. Alas, not the case with me. I used to sleep 6 1/2 hrs. when I was working. Now I need 7 1/2, or I feel lethargic all day long. I don’t nap though … except when I go to the movies.

    I would not know what to do with myself at 3:30 AM! I stay up late so my six or seven hours is at a more “reasonable” getting up time!

    Your anthurium is gorgeous! I fear I don’t grow plants so well!
