are just beginning to streak through the crooked branches of the mesquite woods
as Sophie and I head out to the chicken yard. The chickens and ducks are starting to squawk and quack, knowing that I am on the way to let them out of their enclosure to wander the grounds for the day.
Even if I live to be 95, I think I will always enjoy the need to be out of bed in the early morning hours,......if it's to either feed and take care of a chicken, or even if it is just to see the still quietness of the woods............whether it is freezing snow on the ground, hot wind and dust blowing, or heavy pounding rain outside. These early morning moments are what I look forward to.
How about you? Do you like being able to just stay in a sleep a little longer,
or is life outside tapping on your window and calling for you to come out?
I would love to hear!
