Mornings. Different mornings on some recent weekends. (During the school week, there are no pumpkin doughnuts, no tripping merrily through the early A.M. sunbeams with the camera, let me assure you.)
But morning light IS magical. It's a shame I'm not more of a morning person, because it really is a beautiful time. I so rarely get out to appreciate it. But since the light is changing at this time of year, it's made me appreciate the morning rays falling on:
...shadows of me (that's the only way you will ever see me photographed first thing in the morning, despite Andrew's assertions to start a website called 'Melissa-in-the-Morning.com'),
blankies and squishy toys,
PUMPKIN DOUGHNUTS (which I did not make), tea steam....
and Miss Rosebud with her little kitten face and huge anime eyes, even though she is not remotely a kitten anymore (and the vet has told us that she is not remotely the size of a kitten, or even a normal adult cat...).
Soon it will just be all DARK in the morning and the only pics you will see at this time of day will be a lump in my bed. That's going to be me, hiding and refusing to get out!
