For some strange reason some people have the desire to know what the Byrons are doing in the U.S., and what it looks like over here. To satisfy their curiosity I got into the habit of occasionally taking pictures of what goes on around here and document it for posterity.
Some time around 7 or 7:30am, the alarm goes off and fills the bedroom with music. Depending on what CD is on, I wake up eventually. After intense extended scientific research I came to the conclusion that KennyG leads to prolonged sleep phases and that Slayer is the ideal waker-upper when unexpectedly injected into a deep sleep cycle.
Eventually the eye lids open and absorb the first impression of the day:
Ok, I can see sun, that looks promising. Enough motivation to crawl out of bed.
First a trip to command central to make sure I didn’t miss anything important while I wasted the last 6 hours sleeping.
After the brain was slowly awakened, I’m usually coherent enough for coordinated physical activity. Depending on the weather and how I feel it’s either time for a trip to the gym …
… or for two laps around Lake Elizabeth (4 miles or about 6 kilometers) …
… or not.
