My Beautiful Mornings

I am participating in BlogHer’s NaBloPoMo for the month of January.
Today’s writing prompt question is: 
At what time of day do you feel the most energetic and productive?"

I am most definitely a morning person.  A very early morning person.  
It has always been my favorite time of day.
 I’m not saying that I spring out of bed singing “Oh what a beautiful morning”. No, I am not that kind of sickeningly cheery morning person.  
I am more of a peace and quiet, don’t talk to me until I have had my tea, kind of morning person.  
But once my a.m. ritual has been completed, especially if I have followed through with a workout, I am most productive. 
Take today, for instance.  I got up at my usual time of 6:00 a.m.  By 9:30 a.m. I had let the dog out, put the kettle on, had my tea, started a load of laundry, completed my 40 minute work out at Curves, came home, put in the second load of laundry, made myself scrambled eggs and toast, cleaned up the kitchen, and made the bed. 
I will admit, that around 4:00 p.m., I did find myself dozing a little with my knitting in hand. 
Of course, being retired I kind of don’t have to be energetic or productive if I don’t want to.  In fact, if I feel like staying in my pj’s for a whole cold gray wintery day, ha, I can do that, too.

  1. Sometimes I wish I were a morning person. Being a night owl isn't great for a regular schedule! :)

    1. I guess I am a little bit of a night owl as well. Staying up late and getting up early catches up to me eventually, though.

  2. :) that is one of my goals for this year, to get to becoming a morning person again.. as i used to be years ago..
    came here from nablopomo.. am following you now..

  3. Yay, Sistah! I am most definitely a morning person! Even here on a Saturday, I am up at 4:30 am. I will do some writing and look through some news websites and head out with the dogs by 5:30. By 9:30, I will have accomplished a bunch of chores. ANd, like you, I am not a fa-la-la-la-la kinda morning person. No, just a quiet start to the day.... and, usually by 4:00 in the afternoon, I am ready for a 20 minute power nap (and crashed out by 9). I love the early mornings.
    PS -- May the world hold you extra tightly today :)

    1. The early mornings are the best for sure.
      Thank you for wishing a hug my way today.

  4. You have a lot more energy than I do for sure.Just reading your list of accomplishments made me want a nap! :-)
    Great post!

    1. Thanks Tamara. I get my little snoozes in here and there also.

  5. I am a morning person in that I get up at 6am and are very productive, I am also a morning grump, don't expect a conversation out of me until at least 9am. I wish I could enjoy being a morning person like yourself and many other people. Instead I am known as the Morning Grump.

  6. I understand the grumpiness. You need your space before you let the world in. I get that.
