Random stuff, reflections on the meaning of life and death, humour, self-deprecation, a bit of bad poetry.

Most days I am up with the birds, or rather, before the birds. I’ve always been an early riser no matter how late I go to bed.

I love the deep quiet of the house at that time, the sleepy dawn light, and the slow awakening of nature.

There are chores to take care of first. I hoist my two shih tzus out of our bed, one at a time, then the three of us pad down the stairs to the back door where I let the boys out to relieve themselves.

If there is a bit of light out, I can usually spot two or three squirrels waiting hopefully on nearby branches for me to throw out some bird seed or peanuts.

I feed the fur kids as I prepare my coffee, black these days (you get used to it) and settle in for an hour of reading, contemplation and social media.

Back to chores as I give my sick parrotlet his meds, feed him and my other two birds, make my husband’s coffee and head up to shower.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday I participate in an online weight training class. If there’s time, I do a dog walk with my husband before heading to the office.

What’s your morning routine? Do you wait until the last possible minute before getting up or are you like me, preferring to let the morning unfold at a leisurely pace ?

    Ahhh mornings. I get up after being trampled on by numerous felines, I head to the coffee pot trying not to kill myself by tripping over the furballs milling for breakfast. Make my coffee, feed the cats, open the front door to hear the birds. I’m usually up before them. Grab my coffee, sit down and read.

      I think we have similar morning routines, Jean. You have cats, I have birds and dogs!

      Is there actually light at the time you head out, David??? You’re even more morning than me! 😄

        Laughing. There is a strip of light when I start and then the world gradually awakens!
