Nice ritual, Jen!
My morning ritual involves, after a 45-minute meditation 'sit' with hubby (been doing this for years)....
...eating breakfast in front of a full-spectrum light (to avoid the S.A.D. of Canadian winters), followed by a jaunt outdoors filling 9 birdfeeders, a deer bucket, and scattering some seed for doves and turkeys. Dang turkeys are getting messy! It's fun to go out and get a feel for the day, and who is out and about on our property.
then I come in and thaw out with a second cuppa and check emails and online weather, then forums (this one and one soapmaking forum).
After that, I head down to my soaproom/laundry room and get busy making wondrous bars of handmade soap. Sometimes I actually do laundry too!
I don't have a regular knitting time, but do keep a project on the go, next to my favorite living room chair. That's where I relax to between household tasks.
Nice thread topic! I hope more come in here and share their rituals.
