Pleasant Valley Sunday

I love mornings here.

Peace, tranquility, wildlife — it’s all here, and I get to enjoy it from the table on my deck. This morning, we all sat out at the table on the deck and ate breakfast, sipped coffee, read the paper and listened to the busy animals around us.

Quietly, I am becoming a morning person. Not the kind that enjoys work and the trappings of modern life in the mornings, but the kind that enjoys the quiet, contemplative nature of a warm sunrise, the chirping birds and busy bees, each doing their business around me.

That’s the kind of morning person I’ve become!
