Merry Morning Sunrise (Not a Minecraft One)

The coffee pot gurgled; the last few drops of caffeine sunshine drop into the craft. 

This noise holds special meaning to Cody and Carter as it signifies that they may ask to play their beloved Minecraft.  We instilled this morning rule many years ago to stop the persistent asking to watch t.v. or play video games. 

~“One may not ask to use (or use) electronic devices until the coffee is done.”~

Controller in hand, they were on the couch waiting for their Minecraft world to load.  I was feeding the dogs.  As I walked past the window, the orange glow of the sunrise caught my eye and I exclaimed about its beauty.

Cody leapt up off the couch.

cody:  Wait, Carter!  I want to see a real sunrise.  Whoa!  This real life one is much cooler than the Minecraft ones!

And then, back he went to disappear into his Minecraft world where days are ten minutes long and you get a lackluster sunrise every morning.

I’m glad Cody thinks that real life sunrises are better than Minecraft ones.

  1. LOL! Awesome. Li’l D can’t run Minecraft on his computer, so he runs a “lite” equivalent .. and, separately, enjoys sunrise and sunset live with us, also. 🙂

      It took the boys awhile to get into Minecraft, but they sure do enjoy it. And I have to agree with Cody that unpixelated sunrises are better than the alternative. 🙂

  2. It is stunning. And so nice to hear that real life is still better, even it I very hard to compere with Minecraft. Lauris is also very into it. X

      Yes, at least for now, they think real life is better than computer generated. Lets hope it stays that way for a long time, if not forever.

      Some of the sunrise pictures I took looked as though the sky was on fire – but in a good way. Very breathtaking!
