Early morning post!

I just looked out the window and was surprised to see a cover of thick fog. I didn't take the picture on this post, BTW. Just plucked it off the internet. ;)

My grandmother used to say that when it was foggy in the morning, the sun would come out in the afternoon. So far, from my personal experience, it's almost always right. There's only every been a few times when the fog's lifted and it's still overcast. So we'll see how it goes today.

Did I mention that the Sydney Harbour Bridge turned 75 over the weekend? Well, it did. It's an exciting thing, but we didn't go into the city for the Bridge Walk.

Well, I got up bright and early this morning. Okay, so it was early but definitely not bright. 4am to be precise. The sun started to rise about half an hour ago, but because of the fog it's still pretty dark out there. Anyway, the hubby's started a new job and he has to be there at 5am every morning, so I've decided to get up too and keep him company. It's very early, but I figured that if we start going to bed at an early time every night and I get up with him, after he leaves for work I'll have several hours before my daughter wakes up. That's extra time on the internet, or time to read a bit, even time to write.

So far this morning I've used it for two out of three. I checked my emails and cruised around a bit before grabbing lappy to write. I added another 2k, so the story's moving along just fine. I've used my time very wisely. :) I could get used to this, though it means that our workouts need to change. That's a bit of a pain, but once we get into the swing of things and set up a new routine it should be okay.

I'm expecting my daughter to wake up at any minute... so I better go for now. I'll be back later today with an update on the word count. I've got my fingers crossed, hoping to write the whole first draft for BREATHLESS today...

We get a lot of fog arund here by the water. And you're right, if it lifts it's usually sunny.

Hi Shelli! It's a lovely theory, and one my grandmother told me when I was very little... but I never forgot it.

Thanks for confirming that it happens where you live too. :)

I love foggy mornings - unless I have to drive in it. Then it freaks me out a bit.

Congrats on the 2k! That's a pretty good writing jaunt. I wish I could put in that much daily. I'd feel like I was actually getting somewhere.

Hope hubby's new job goes smooth as glass. :)

Thanks Cora! I had a great writing day today. :)

And yeah, foggy morning drives are totally scary.
