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, nighthawks..it 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 anymore...it 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. :-)
