My Weekday Morning

My Corner...

Have I been gone long?? Many waters have passed under the bridge o! :-)
Well, I chose to get away from the horrors going on around the world and talk about my typical weekday morning routine! J

You know how you have some ritual going in your day/life sometimes? I guess I am no different!
Every morning when I arrive at my desk; I place my hand bag and laptop bag on my desk, whisk out my tiny purse of keys, phones, and iPad, all in that order. I connect my laptop to its docking station and then I plug in my earpiece. Phones are positioned just so, and iPad unobtrusively so I can work it without having to move it around. I arrange all the documents I need to work on  in a file, on the desk, then I go get my inevitable cup of tea and then the joy of the day begins: music. If I am at my desk and the earpiece is not in my ears, I am completely bereft, like something critical is missing and indeed something is!  Actually, sometimes, especially when I move around a lot, I realize at some point that the earpiece is in my ears but nothing is playing! lol. Many a time too, I have disrupted the peace on my floor because in my swiveling around, the earpiece pops out of the laptop  and music fills the air! I am sure my colleagues roll their eyes at such times, Lol!

What I listen to depends on my mood; when it is raining, I automatically switch to classical (a habit I developped years ago and that's become like religion!) otherwise, it is either my favorite Jazz radio station (the French or the English one), or I put together a playlist from the collection on my laptop; sometimes I am in the mood for Enigma or Enya (could be when I am depressed, hmm, you would think that should depress me further but hey! *straight face*) for now though, my present preoccupation is the Maranatha Singers, the 'Old Skool' gospel songs, and you wont believe it, I even found a CD of (the Ibo Nigerian) 'Voice of the Cross' (who remembers them? 'Good morning Jesus, good morning Lord??) but whatever the case, there has to be music in my ears. What is life without music? I can’t imagine it.

Whatever the case, the two things that are never missing in my day? Music and tea. :-)

My typical work day routine! What’s yours?!

 Be Free Oh.


  1. Zee lovely piece!

    My days are not nearly that work organises me....I have too much noise all around and really dont make out time to listen to music. When I do I enjoy it, you will then wonder why I don't as often? Its like the joy of a night bath, yet I dont make it a habit!

    There is just too much noise around me! I seek for.......

    I want to be free! I desire to be free.....but.....


    1. Thanks for your comment, Milliechow!
      It made me laugh...a la Tuface "I wanna be free, free like a bird....'
      But you know, every single thing requires (conscious) effort....and biko, that area can certainly NOT be as noisy as Naija, in whatever way you chose to interpret 'noise!' Hein?!


I value your comments! Do your best to leave some...
