It’s that time of the year when I am actually up before the sun rises.

A few years ago I would have gone back to bed as soon as Bill was out the bed to grab a little more sleep. Now I just stay up (most of the time) in hopes that I’ll be tired enough to sleep better when it is time to go back to bed. Plus I just plain accomplish more during the day if I stay up, even if I’m tired. Well, most of the time I do.

For example, yesterday morning Bill left around 6:30 a.m. and by 7:00 a.m. I had pumpkin muffins baking in the oven. By 10:00 a.m. I had two loads of laundry hanging on the clothesline, three rows of crocheting completed, vegetables roasting in the oven, and was looking up the recipe for homemade pizza crust. Homemade calzones were lunch! Yummy!

    That sounds a bit like my morning this morning. Up and running, getting things done so maybe I can chat tomorrow. 🙂
