Now that it is warm I am able to sleep with the windows wide open...and I love that. Breezes coming in, frogs singing, an occasional owl, is lovely.

The sun is also coming up earlier.
I know this because at 5:41 this morning, it was bright in my room.
I know the time because I looked at my phone.
I know all of this because Mr. C said "WOW! I don't think you need an aviary or to get a canary sounds like there are a million birds out there!"

Because of the sun, and hearing the word birds...I slowly came to awareness. I listened and heard the amazing sound of many birds singing to the sun. I could pick out the robins, cardinals, red winged blackbirds, and the finches.

Even though it was ridiculously early, and I had fallen asleep a mere 4-5 hours before, it was a beautiful way to start the day...basking in the morning light and hearing bird song.

*in case no one realizes it...I really love birds. :-)

Love this post. Such a beautiful way to start your morning. :)

Speaking of birds, we were outside this morning and before I could stop him, E sneaked up behind a robin, poked it with a stick, and literally scared the poop out of the poor thing. Then it decided to dive bomb me and nearly took my head off, even though I had nothing to do with the poking and was merely an innocent bystander.

That is not the way I like to start my day. Oh, and then later E did a somersault and landed on top of my head while I was in the tuck position. I can barely move my neck now and have spent most of the day in bed with a headache.

Pretty sure all children and birds are out to get me at this point.
