What a beautiful day!!!

This was the sky at 5:30 a.m. The sun was beginning to peak through and there are heavy rain clouds above. You can see the rain falling between the high clouds and the low clouds on the ocean. So very cool....

This is the actual sunrise 45 minutes later. Notice the rain clouds are gone. It's amazing how quickly these things move.

As I was sitting out back with the dogs taking pictures I was thinking about how much I love the early, early morning. It's my favorite time of the day. I love to get up early before the sun and other people, and sit outside and just enjoy. Sunrise is like a new beginning. It's like every single day is a completely clean slate and you have the chance to make it whatever you want; good, bad or indifferent. It's the feeling of possibilities and opportunities. No matter what has happened yesterday, it is over and done with and you've got another chance to get it right.

I look back on my life and just can't believe some of the things I've done. I used to be a real partyer. I would stay up all night then sleep all day. I thought that was a great way to live. Geez, who'd a thunk I'd be wrong??? I'm not sure when the change took place. I think it was when we moved to Hawaii 15 years ago. It's hard to sleep the day away when you have all this beauty around you. Also, when we moved here I stopped my partying. I decided it was time to grow up and face the adult work. So I did.

Well, all of this deep thought was brought to you by the fact that today is my rest day. I didn't swim last night as my ankle was feeling considerably better and decided to not to push it. In fact I think I'll take the weekend off and start in again on Monday. The ankle is healing very quickly and I don't want to jeopardize that. Okay, on that note I will hobble off to the shower and go to work. Maybe I can get out a little early today; that would be so very awesome!!!!

Faced my fears

 So I mentioned that I had gotten some of the cups I ordered. They are Stanley dupes and have gold plating under the powder coating, so when...
