Alabama time

My body hasn't adjusted to Pacific Time, so even though I went to bed on California time last night, I woke up on Alabama time this morning, which is two hours early.

I still had prep work for the meeting today, so I spent time preparing. Afterwards, I stepped down to the lobby and fetched some coffee.

Once back in the room I noticed the curtains were the color or orange sherbet. When I stepped out on the balcony with my cup of steaming java, I located the culprit. It was the morning sky just before the sunrise.

Placing my cup on a table, I sat for a long while honoring the moment.  It was a beautiful thing to behold.

I'll be flying home early in the morning. No matter how beautiful it is where I go, it's always good to be back home.

    Sorry we didn't get to meet!!

  2. Pretty sure I failed to comment on your earlier post regarding your lodging 'prerequisites', Rick ... you had me in stitches! Working for a major hotelier, I appreciate the tongue-in-cheek poke at Those Who Take Themselves Seriously.
    Happy to hear your flight was uneventful ... but sorry to hear Jilda couldn't accompany you.
    Safe travels home!

  3. Great photo. All those palm trees, so California.

  4. Wow, that is an awesome sky to wake up to, better than a cup of Java.
    I hope all went well at your meeting, and the people at the hotel were very accommodating and didn't served tripe, hahaha.

    Welcome back.

  5. A lovely greeting from the morning. Sure is pretty.

  6. You had a beautiful view and soon you will be home. At least you should not have to readjust your times when you get home.

  7. Home is always appreciated after being away, unless you have to come back to snow or just plain cold weather. Home feels good still, but the the weather takes away from the overall joy of being home again!
