Good morning! Deep breath in… Deep breath out… STRETCH. It’s early here so I’m still waking up. I’ve been literally tossing myself out of bed at the crack of dawn on Saturdays and Sundays for a couple weeks, which I’ve never done willingly in my life. My body loves to sleep in if given the chance, but when I get up early, it makes it easier to squeeze in a workout and some reading.
Do I miss the extra REM cycles? Yeah, a little… I’m still not a morning person AT ALL, but I can masquerade as one. It’s like one of those ’90s commercials for Barbizon modeling schools. “Be a model. Or…just look like one!” I’m not a morning person. I just look like one.
On that note, I hope your Saturday has been productive so far! Your reading for the week…

This is a good mix for cleaning your house on the weekend.
OK, time for a quick walk around the neighborhood in my pajamas (yes, I’m that person). Have a wonderful weekend and a fab first day of June. 😊
