It is seven forty-five in the morning as I roll out of bed and pull the shades open. It’s still dark outside but from the looks of the ground, we had some snow fall overnight. I crack the window open and light a cigarette.

The smell of the air and the cool chill is delightful this time of the morning. In the distance I hear a rumble and see a blue light flashing. The snow plow roars down the road, sweeping everything aside that is in it’s path.

A fog horn sounds in the distance as I finish my cigarette and snuff jt in the ashtray. I shut the window as it begins to get cold inside. Leaving the window open in this area will tend to do that.

I make my way to the kitchen and fetch a frying pan. I turn the heat on medium and fills the kettle with water. I like hot chocolate in the morning rather than coffee. I quit drinking coffee about two or three years ago now. I feel better throughout the day and don’t become so drained without a coffee.

As the the lan heats up, I begin mixing eggs and milk with a pince of salt. This mixture is what makes my morning special. Once the mixture is done I pour it in the pan that is heated and greased.

While the eggs cook, I chop up some peppers and cheese. This is what adds taste and flavor to the omlette. I throw the peppers and cheese on top of the omelet and let it cook a bit more.

The kettle is boiled so I pour up the hot water into the hot chocolate and mix. Once I finish with the mixing I fold the omelet and cover, cooking a little while longer.

Turning the heat down on low while it is covered is a good idea. I sip my hot chocolate, OUCH!!! Still too hot to drink. I should have known better than to try it while it is cooling down.

The omelet turned out great and I enjoyed my hot chocolate. The morning can be so peaceful and relaxing. There aren’t many birds during the winter months but I enjoy meditation to music online.

Enjoy your morning and take care everyone!
