Daily Prompt: Early Morning Smells and Sounds

Daily Prompt: Feed Your Senses

Write down the first sight, sound, smell, and sensation you experienced on waking up today. Pick the one you’re most drawn to, and write. (For a bigger challenge, pick the one you’re least drawn to.)

Photographers, show us one of the five senses — bonus points for depicting a smell! 

Before the mask came off the eyes, the feel of the dog at her back and the one at her feet stirring told her it was time.  The cat gently tugging at her mask with his whimpers to be fed was a clear indication of time.

She was not in need of an alarm clock.  The sound of the rooster outside in the distance that was crowing was just as clear as the owl in the tree just outside the window.  Begging for a few more minutes was not an option.
Hearing the steady sound of the ceiling fan above as each rotation brought a cooling breeze across her was so relaxing.  To just stay in this position and not move would be wonderful.
The faint aroma of coffee getting stronger with every sound of the purk of the huge 30 cup that her hubby had started, anticipating her arrival in the kitchen to get her first

It was time.  As she layed there and quietly said to the animals “Potty Time”, the room filled with noise like a three ring circus.  Dogs dancing in circles, while the cat was doing a tight rope act across the dresser to not be trampled by the huge elephant sized dog below.
She herself does a quick slip into the tiny bathroom that is tucked in the corner of the bedroom as her day has begun.

Taking the dogs to the door and meeting the cats in the laundry room to give them their food.  Letting the dogs back in and letting the cats out.  Her thoughts are that in her former life she must have made a great doorman.

Off to grab that cup of coffee, do the late night dishes of her hubby’s snacks and then on to her blog site to see what adventures await her before her day of housework and work were to begin.  That was what one called “All in a day’s work”.

What is your morning routine like?  Is it the same or different every day?

Do you take time to smell the aroma of the ions in the air from the rain about the begin or the aroma from the brewing of the coffee?
