I used to sleep in on Saturdays (sometimes till 10:00 am!), but as I’ve gotten older and had a few kiddos I actually look forward to a quiet morning to see outside turn from dark to light. I see it a lot on the way to work, but I mean here at the house or out on our property. It can be very relaxing and make you really thankful for what is right here in front of you. The ultimate high def experience right before you in complete surround sound to boot! This weekend, the humidity was high and the night was really wet, but without actual rain. The view through the trees looking East was really spectacular as the sunlight started to waken all the plants and animals from a long night’s slumber. This was my view looking East-North East from our little country road.
The picture doesn’t even do it justice, but you get the idea. I’m able to think really well on these mornings and I find I even get inspired to do all my Saturday “Honey-dos”! Of course I have to have a good ol’ cup of joe to make it complete. So next time you are considering sleeping in, think of the opportunities you may miss outside early in the morning. After all, you can make it up with a mid day nap on Sunday!
