Ugh. Mornings.

I've never really been a morning person. Sure, I like watching the sun rise and the sky turn pink, then blue. I love hearing the birds sing. I love the smell of early morning.

But not EVERY morning.

I like sleep. I like staying up late.

But right now, I'd give about anything to just go back to bed. Instead, I'm off to the office...after I down a gallon of coffee and take a shower, of course. Can't go out in public with bed head, right?

I suppose it is nice, as I sit here getting ready for work and watch deer and rabbits in the yard. Thankfully, they are mostly in the clover and not in my garden.

My garden, by the way, is minuscule this year. Teensy, even. It's just weird to have grass and clover where I once grew food. I don't think I like it much.

But what's a gal to do? I only have so many hours in the day and so much energy. Gardening has to be cut back in order to make time for working on the house - stuff is actually getting done, by the way. Hoping to get mowing and even some painting done on my day off this week.

Yeah, it could happen.

After I catch up on my sleep.

Be thankful that the last thing you see are deer and rabbits, and pastures and clover and a garden (even if its itty bitty) and and and instead of the walls of all the houses surrounding you and traffic on the road outside. I am a mornng person and i deserve to live where you are, not here in suburbia. I'd be out there at sunrise, walking on the frosty grass, saying good morning to the animals and giving them a good rub.... Arghhh sighhh Back to work. Must go get another coffee.

True, Lynda, I should love every minute of being out here..and I do. It's just those mornings that I'm headed to the city and a day in the basement office that depress me. Not that I don't love my job, but I do miss the outdoors, the sunshine, and the fresh air.

And yes!! You DO deserve to live in the woods!! If you ever move to Ohio, we'd love to have you as a neighbor!
