Nobody Said It Was Easy

Take me back to the START. That's right, START is the Saturday Scavenger Shots word, chosen by Jasen over at Swamp Gas & Moonlit Reflections. And if you haven't already, check out his posts from the last few days about the creation myths of various cultures...very interesting. 

I couldn't decide what kind of START I wanted to post about...so of course I left it until the last minute. Then I decided to take a couple of photos of things that help me START my work day...especially on  a cold Saturday morning.

This is the old fashioned wall heater in my bathroom.  The thought of it helps me to START throwing off the nice warm covers and making my way out of bed.  I grab my clothes and flee to the bathroom and START this baby up. Real heat in a small room, combined with a hot, comforting shower or bath helps me feel that I have a START on my day.

Another START up incentive to my day was this works bagel with cream cheese.  You can also see part of my coffee cup in the picture. What day could START without coffee or tea? Well, mine do sometimes...but not today. I felt like I needed some extra rewards for STARTing today. It was just one of those days.

There you have it. A couple of the creature comforts that helped me START my day with a bit more enthusiasm.  Of course, we are about to START a new year and as always, I am facing it with optimism and hope. 2013 will be a fine, fine year. Let it START!

My day almost always starts with coffee, too. And I just got back from buying bagels, cream cheese and lox for Christmas breakfast, a favorite start to the day in this house.

I don't have a wall heater in my bathroom, but I also can't imagine where I'd put it. I am definitely a coffee drinker to start the day, but it is infrequently that I will have a bagel.

By the way, you have been tagged for the word. Please choose.
