The early mornings....


I really love being up early in the mornings. I don't lament the fact that I don't sleep in on a Saturday or Sunday. Waking up as the sun begins to shine, getting up to get a cup of coffee, sitting at my desk, which gives me a view of our backyard - all of these things are pleasant to me. To hear the mockingbird singing, using a different song than I've heard before. To hear the mourning dove dole out its song. To hear the sparrows chirp and flit about, and the hummingbird sit in the fountain, bathing - an act which adjusts the sound of the water, so you know that a hummingbird is in there. And the quiet of the house...still, serene. No kids up yet, no TV on, just me, my coffee, and my quiet reading...
