I intended to get everything prepped and ready for smoking a brisket last night. It takes a solid 12-14 hours to do it right, so getting everything ready ahead of time is pretty key. Don't mess up your meez, basically. But I was very tired and I forgot.

The little one started stirring this morning so we both woke up to change and feed her, and I realized it was past time I get the brisket on. I rushed around to get it ready, fired up the smoker, threw in the meat, and realized I was still pretty tired. When I went back to bed, I found this scene - my wife asleep next to my daughter, the first light of morning on their faces. Not visible in this picture - the dog curled up on my side of the bed.

I shoved the dog over, but he didn't jump off, he was too cozy. So I squeezed in as best I could, and read and rested for another hour or two. Eowyn started to make tiny squeaking noises, like a baby bird.

We got up and started the day. A very good day. The best day ever, until tomorrow.
