Early morning

I am convinced that one of the greatest luxuries in life is waking up naturally. No alarm clock and nothing to rush around and get ready for. Aaaaah. Since I don't have to be anywhere until 11:30 today I thought that I would sleep a little later and wake up naturally. The second part did happen but why did it have to happen at 5:49 this morning? But then I heard the siren call of the computer and decided to check out a few things. Which lead me here and the realization that I haven't posted for a bit.

I do think that all posts should have some kind of picture and just went to look for one. Isn't this a great rooster pic! A friend of mine is in Key West right now and she took this in a parking lot. I did crop it a little to get the cars out of the picture so now it really is perfect. I'm glad that he isn't what woke me this morning.

I really thought that by now I would be caught up and have some time to get sewing. That just hasn't happened yet. My Christmas decorations are still up and I still need to organize my sewing room and projects just a little. Where does the time go? Luckily, I don't mind my decorations and they might just stay up a little longer.

Even when I get my Christmas things put away, I do leave the snowmen out. One friend will usually start begging me to put them away since we have so much snow and she feels I am responsible. That is not happening this year. We had a lot of snow Halloween weekend but no more so far. We have had very strange weather. Hardly cold enough to wear a coat on some days. Not a complaint, just an observation.

Now, before I end, I'm going on record to say that it's okay if we don't get tons of snow. This was from last year and I have pictures to look at and don't need to see this. But I did hear that we are getting snow in February. How do they know that?

Time to close. I think I should have put a warning at the beginning. Something like, "It's early morning and my thoughts are meandering." They sure did today. If you got to the bottom of this post, thanks for sticking with me. Hopefully, I'll be back very soon with some sewing or fabric at least. Right now, I may just go back to bed, it's still dark outside!


  1. I love the early rising and making the day as long as possible. Love the rooster! We have one somewhere near us that crows about 4 a.m.

    1. Nancy- We really haven't had any snow since Halloween either. I have a feeling we're going to pay for this mild winter and it won't be pretty!!

      Love the rooster picture- there's nothing better than a handsome rooster!
