Early Morning

It's usually a good thing when I'm up at hours when I would normally be sleeping. It typically means I'm inspired or creativity is soaring (or both). Or sometimes it means one of my girls woke me to go pee-pee, or all of the above. This morning my four-year-old woke me at about 4:00 and I've been up ever since. The birds are chirping madly, the house is quiet, the kids and husband and animals are still sound asleep--it is nice to have these moments before the rest of my people wake up.

My parents are coming from Vermont this morning! I haven't seen them in almost a year and am very much looking forward to spending some time with them. My husband and I have spent the last few days preparing for them (car cleaning, carpet cleaning, lawn mowing, garage cleaning, refrigerator cleaning, getting the broken washing machine fixed, laundry and more laundry, dealing with a broken washing machine a second time, endless picking up, grocery shopping, etc...). It will be very nice to kick back and just enjoy them and watch them enjoy the little ones. Painting and writing will need to be put on hold for a few days and will patiently wait for my return. :)

It's almost time for that early morning walk. It will feel good to breathe the fresh morning air and get my body moving--it's been a few days since I've done that too. For now, life is good, blissfully so at times. My new found love for painting has me giddy and full of gratitude. sigh. I am one lucky woman.
