The sun isn't even fully up yet this morning. The alarm was set for 6:30 but I woke up early and decided not to wait for it. When I think of the days I used to sleep in till 10 or later, I have to laugh. I can't stand to stay in bed late anymore.
The alarm was set so I can get my boy up and out early today. This morning he is off to work on a fellow Boy Scout's Eagle project. I love these projects; I love seeing young men working together. I love my son engaging in some good physical labor, during Labor Day weekend or at any other time.
This week I received a nice surprise from my friend G at Explorations in Learning: 3 blog awards! Fun! You don't see them yet because I am having trouble getting the images over here. My lack of technical skill is amazing! I will persevere (and seek help) so they should be up later.
One of the challenges of living in a small house is the need for quiet. I enjoy being up while everyone else is asleep but sometimes I don't spend my time well because I don't want to wake everyone else up. My natural inclination in the morning is to start banging around in the kitchen! Or starting laundry. All noisy. So I read, pray, knit, blog. Sometimes I slip out for a long walk with the dog.
What do you do when you're up before everyone else? Join me this Saturday morning!
