I slept in a little longer than usual this morning. I threw back the soft and comforting yellow quilt. As usual, I paused a moment to be sure that I did not step onto Miss Dixie Tulip, who sleeps in her little doggie bed right beside my bed.
Usually, she is already awake and sitting at the top of the stairway waiting for me to take her downstairs. But not today. Somehow, I managed to get out of bed before she did. That is rare.
When I entered the bathroom, I turned on the ceiling light so I could see the clock. It was 4:30, and I was amazed that we slept this long. Miss Dixie usually wakes up between 2:30 and 3:30 am. Once she is awake, our day begins.
