Today was one of those days where I woke real early…urghhh!! 🙂 I rolled over and tried to go back to sleep to no avail.  So with great reluctance (I am not a morning person) I stumbled out of bed, bleary eyed and peeved!!

As I traipsed down the stairs I noted that the sky was beginning to lighten (it was that early) and mused that it was probably about 6.30am…. hahaha! it was in fact 06:32 to be precise.  I did not feel at all sleepy although my brain was screaming Noooo!!! it’s too early and my mouth was stretched wide in a yawn….

I decided to make myself a cup of tea and head on back to bed, and hopefully catch another hour or so of shut-eye.  Then through the mists of my half-dead brain I noticed the sounds of the dawn-chorus 🙂 and that was the end of my bed-time.  I am never up this early in the morning so without further ado I decided to treat myself and sit out on the verandah whilst enjoying my first cuppa of the day.  I quickly spread out crumbs of bread and handfuls of seed in the hope the wee birdies might just visit while I was there.

And am I glad I did.  Still darkish out, the day is surprisingly warm, albeit shrouded in mist.  The trees at the end of the garden barely discernable, dripping with morning dew were ghostly in their shroud of grey.

In the distance and nearby, birds waking up with a delightful chorus of chirps and cheeps and whirry sounds, flitted here and there, already busy in their search for sustenance.  With the hot mug keeping my hands warm I wriggled comfortably into the chair, eyes shut and cosy in my cocoon I snuggled into the blanket tightly wrapped around my body and enjoyed the symphony.

What a delightful treat. And if I wasn’t such a lazy bones….I could probably enjoy that every day.  Sadly the birds didn’t come down to partake in the feast, but I have no doubt that once I was gone they would be there in a flash. 🙂  and despite the overwhelming urge to go back to bed and pull the covers over my head…..now it’s really time to start the day…….
