Oh Boy Do I Love Bacon

Updated on February 14, 2017

Breakfast Is Ready

I'm waking up slowly

My arms stretched out over my head

My head nestled deep into my pillow

A light sheet tossed over my lifeless body

A comforter flipped hanging half on and half off the bed

My wife repeats for the third time breakfast is ready

This time I mumble but only a few words come out

O.k. I'm up

Thinking to myself

But am I really

What was the last thing I remember

It was like a wild night for those people who love to drink

A great evening of dancing and celebration

For those sports enthusiasts

A baseball game of two great teams who play their hearts out

Going into extra innings and the score is still tied five to five

What a game !!!

For me it is a wonderful feeling after incredible love

Topped off with my wife surprising me with a delicious breakfast

Scrambled eggs, English muffin and four strips of crispy hot bacon

A glass of apple juice ,vitamin and a banana

Hundreds of images flashing through my head

The connection of two spirits

Who bond on so many levels

Remembering all the good times

That brought us to this point

The inner heat of passion

That fills every inch of my body

A sweet satisfaction

Like eating a soft Carmel chocolate

I didn't realize

I was hungry for food

We burned a few calories and worked up an appetite

I am just enjoying happiness on all levels

An early morning kiss and a hug

Adding a final stamp of approval

Another day speeding forward

In a direction that we both dreamed

Taking an ordinary day

Finding new ways

Making life speechless

      Judah So many people find and do the things they enjoy. For me life is simpler and I am a home body and can skip all the parties and big crowds. I love one to one relaxing together. Finding humor 0n t.v. And in life. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Today is Monday and I am taking a snow day. Out shoveling and coming in to relax. The snow stopped for a brief time now it's snowing again. What is the weather like now in Australia and what is the hottest and coldest it will get. Have a great day.

      We have been experiencing a heat wave for the last two weeks. Most days have been between 34 (93.2F)band 40 degrees (104F) Celsius. Crossing fingers for some rain to cool things down.

      You know that is the one thing I really miss. Good ole US bacon. We can get bacon strips here now too but you should see the prices. So I am stuck with our slabs of bacon and it just isn't the same.

      Shyron E Shenko I love to see people enjoying what they love. The smell and sound of bacon gets me going long before I eat it. How about you ? Do you have a comfort food ? Finding time for each other all times during the day just makes life so exciting.Dreaming and doing keep our creative energies stirring. Thank you so much and have an awesome day.

      My mother's typical breakfast, at least from 95 to 105 was an English muffin, cottage cheese, marmalade, a small glass of orange juice, a pot of Red Rose Tea, and a vitamin pill. Once in a while eggs and bacon, blueberry pancakes or muffins, and bacon started her days. Snow was always welcomed, and the window bird feeder was entertaining year round. Thanks for stirring good memories.

      Demas W Jasper I love reading about other people and their lifestyle. Your mother had many secrets to her long life. I love her breakfast. What is your typical breakfast. Years later I eat cereal almost every day and eggs one or two times a week. I use to love oatmeal but for some reason I haven't had it in a long time. Pancakes and waffles once every other week. Thank you for sharing and caring. Have a really wonderful weekend.
