Everyday Matters Challenge # 14:What I see when I wake up

morning view
good morning

i wish this scan and my work on photoshop did a decent job of showing off the pencilwork, but that didn't really go over. i had a lot of fun making the piece though.

i wake up at least twice each morning. the first time, the first thing i see is my thermometer-i practice NFP/FAM and have to take my basal body temperature each morning. the second time i wake up, and the first time i'm actually conscious, i see ian. he's the best part of my day, and i get to see him first thing in the morning and the last thing at night. and i know exactly what he is thinking of when he is sleeping in the morning-just one more spoon.

  2. awwww. this is so sweet. I went through a period of taking my temp every morning too. I did it to figure out when I was ovulating. Luckily I did get pregnant but not for a whole year of that nonsence!

  7. the spoons... well, every time i try to get up in the morning, ian tends to pull me back in and demands to be spooned. that boy has spoons on the brain, the way i figure it. not that i'm really complaining. nothin' so nice as early morning spoons.
