I begin my day like the rest of the world, I open my eyes. I wake up, stretch my arms to my pillow, point my toes toward the bay sliding glass doors, out past the mountain tops, and I plunge my feet into the ocean. All this and I’m still in my bed. A warm body beside me and a smile on my face, I turn and give a buongiorno and a bacio and I can feel the ocean kiss me awake. I rise from the mattress on the teak floor to the bathroom on the left. I close the sliding wood door and perch myself on the throne for what will be the first of many pee’s for the day. I wash my face and check for spots, all is clear, for today. I follow the teak into the open concept kitchen and living-room and turn on the espresso machine. My round Tetley tea bag (which I had shipped from Canada) fits perfectly in the cup of the espresso maker, the tea is slightly tainted with espresso, there is no other choice, there is no oven, yet. I drink my tea on our new used divano and gaze out the windows. Il mare is clam today, maybe we will go to the beach for the fourth day in a row, maybe we will take an hour drive to Sassari to pick up a new English novel and maybe just maybe I’ll sit on my yellow divano and stare dreamily into the valley and the mountains that surround us.
Some of us have all the luck eh? Sounds like you’re really enjoying la dolce vita and that can only be good. 🙂
I like the way you wrote this. Intimate with good style. Keep it up.
Thanks for the comment Single Malt! 🙂
Did I mention I hate you? Just kidding – it sounds sublime!!!
Tetley tea is awesome, I can understand why you would have it shipped from here! Right now, my tired body is craving coffee pretty badly. >_<"
Your imagery sounds so calming, it makes me want to escape!
That sounds lovely! I don’t have much of a morning wake-up routine because it tends to be so hasty. My going-to-sleep routine is the one I focus on more!
