I’ve always liked the idea of being a morning person, but I’ve never quite mastered the art.
If I’m fully immersed in training for a goal race I can generally coax myself up early *most* mornings to run. And if I have to be at work early of course I’m up. Other than that, I have a really hard time rising early if I don’t have to.
There’s usually laundry and dishes to wash, mail and bills to sort, and always laundry to fold, but who wants to do that first thing??
I really relish lying half awake under the covers for as long as I possibly can. It gives me time to wake up, then I can read a morning devotion and sip my steaming coffee until I’m ready to meet the morning.
Whether tired, lazy, achingly sore, or just reluctant — I love to sleep.
Every Sunday I have early morning calf chores though, so that means I’m up around 4:30 so I can be at the farm shortly after 5:00. (I’m lucky to have a great employee who works early morning the rest of the week so I can come in later and keep my hours somewhat under control.)
I know it’s good for me to monitor the morning routine and work through any problems, plus I usually see sights worth capturing before the sun comes up.
I thought I’d share some of the past few week’s Sunday morning sights with you. (That middle one is our milk truck.) Perhaps you’ve already seem them on my Instagram feed, but I think they’re worth a re-share. 🙂
