Talking What is the one item in your daily routine you look forward to the most?

For me it's coming home at 1PM to take a break and watch Gunsmoke.

I also eat lunch, let the girls out, change over tools and supplies in my truck as needed for the second shift, answer email, check talk forums, and generally just let my head and body temperature go back down to where it belongs. Nice to also just give my brain a diversion from the rat race.

There are days it just doesn't happen because of practicality reasons.

Over the years the programming has changed. Rotations have included The Rockford Files and The Big Valley.

The black and white Gunsmoke episodes are fantastic! There's never been anyone like Matt Dillon.....and there never will be!

Between 9 and 9:30 I sit in my recliner and give the one year old his last bottle and put him to bed.

It's an amazingly peaceful time.

My morning bike ride. When school is in session I wait till after the school zones have cleared but in the summer I go right around sunrise. That is the "coolest" part of the day around here. I just zone out as much as possible and enjoy the new day. I ride a lot of relatively rural roads with little traffic and opportunities to see wildlife, although some of it is road kill unfortunately. Hawks, herons, crested caracara, deer, bob cats, feral hogs and even an occasional alligator.

First thing as I wake - my collie is waiting impatiently to jump up, put his front paws on me, nuzzle and lick my face

3 days a week, I work at the rental houses after work at the shop. I am usually dead tired , and pretty weary at 10 pm, when I am locking the door of the house to leave .
For some odd reason, I really like that 30 minute drive home from the city . Most of the world is quiet, there is little traffic, and I just really enjoy that quiet time mixed with some satisfaction of putting in a good hard days work .
It is always a time for me to reflect on what I have accomplished, and what I have ahead of me for the next day .

Happy hour. By 4 PM the naproxen has worn off and a glass of ice cold liquid painkiller feels pretty darn good.

Probably making coffee first thing in the morning.

The coffees,lattes usually, have to be perfect. If there is one thing in life to get right it's the coffees.

My last cup of coffee for the day, which means I go home soon.

My wife and I both get up at 0600.

She goes down stairs and takes care of the dogs and makes us both coffee. We sit in bed, drink my now one and only cup of Joe a day, and talk about the day ahead....the Golden 1/2 hour.

This is every day when we are home together.

Breakfast...it's almost always the biggest meal of the day for me....eggs, hash browns, bacon/sausage are my go-to foods.
Keeps me going for the rest of the day. If I eat a large meal in the afternoon/evening, I feel bloated for the next day.
I've never had a problem with weight gain and I think the big breakfast is a factor.

The absolute reciprocal of this thread:
