A week ago we found this awesome cat-pattern duvet on the sales section at Urban Outfitters, and I couldn’t control myself, I hugged it and turned to Dani: we need it, right? The fact that he agreed, even quicker than I was able to finish my sentence, is a proof that Juno’s charms are doing wonders to us.
I guess it’s quite usual that you found yourself attracted to shapes and patterns that remind you to someone, a place you love or look familiar, and that’s why it’s not rare at all that people with, for instance, a dachshund pup may have a pillow, painting or at least a salt&pepper shakers in the kitchen with a dachshund face. I am sure you can also relate to this, maybe instead of an animal it is a place, like the sea or the mountain, or a city that you love.
It’s a truth acknowledged (wink*) that when there are several animal shapes for the same item I am always inclined on choosing the cat, that’s why our bedroom looks more cat-ified each day that goes by (mmm… well I could extend this affirmation to all of the house!). I like to have things around me that make me smile, so here it is, a cat never fails to make me smile, does it sound super cheesy?
I was not only interested into talking about the duvet and my fondness on anything cat-related, but also discussing sleep and morning routines (and how Juno joins them). I am like the worse adviser you could found on this subject, so definitely don’t follow my routine, just wanted to share it and learn more about yours too!
On a daily basis Daniel is the first one to sleep, he starts feeling sleepy at 21:00 and he is always on the bed around 22:30-23:00. When I’m lucky, I go to bed around 00:00, if at that time I still can’t sleep I go to bed anyways with my ipad, so my body is not tempted to stay in the couch with the tv. In those not so good days I fall sleep in the couch and get up at 3:00 am and go to bed. This wouldn’t bother me too much if it wasn’t for work, and because on weekends I like to get up equally early to spend more quality time with Dani, whom is an early bird.
It never fails that Juno comes with me whenever I choose to go to sleep, she waits for me (sleeping) and when I go to sleep she comes running to the bed, she always has to climb first. When I get inside the bed, she looks for my lap and sleeps on it. She never spends the complete night with us, but I am usually already sleeping when she leaves our bedroom.
When talking about morning routines I may be even worse, although not really. I get up between 7:15-7:45 and don’t focus only on changing and having breakfast, I always find myself doing things around the house, like putting the dry silverware back from the sink to their drawer while watching an episode on Netflix (I’m right now watching “You”). Even when I get up earlier I tend to forget about the hour and keep doing housework and end up being one of the last people to arrive to my office. Luckily I haven’t a strict entry time, but of course it affects to the leaving time, so not ideal, I know. Still it works for me.
and here it is… how an unrequired hug looks like!
Would love to learn more about both your sleep and morning routines! Let me know if you have a similar inner clock as my body and which one is your approach.
