Look at that lovely pink sky.
So that’s what a sunrise looks like.
Looks like it’s time
I went to bed.
Are you a night-owl too? Pulling all-nighters is often the only way I get to see the sunrise!
Definitely the only time I see a sunrise. 🙂
I know that feeling all too well 🙂
Cue the songbirds. I’ve had a morning or three like that…with an “oh shit” thrown in before repressing the list of things I’ll have to do on 90 minutes of sleep.
I was surprised that I didn’t hear the dawn chorus. That’s generally my cue to get to bed. Generally when I go to bed at 3 or 4 a.m. (which is usually through the summer) I sleep 8 hours until 11 or 12. Today I’m running on 5 hours. I’m a little blurry eyed!
LOL LOVE IT! I’ll never forget years ago when I was in a huge tent talking with some friends I’d just met. We sat there and talked all night long at a week-long camping event called Pensic in Northern Pennsylvania. I remember the tent getting brighter and brighter. I even said to him that I wished someone would turn OFF their headlights only to realize that we had literally talked the night away and there was no way to turn off the Sun.
lol Oh dear.
Not you too, teacher…
Definitely. I am a hard core night owl.
I get my best inspiration for writing in the wee morning hours. I Love the Quiet of the dawn before the hustle and bustle of the day begins. Peace & Tranquility.
In our heat, it’s lovely and cool to write at night. I tend to start writing at 11 or midnight. I head to bed at 3 or 4 a.m. This morning it was after 6 a.m. I got hubby’s morning coffee as he headed off on a 115 km bike ride before I went to bed. 🙂
so free 🙂
wonderful to be free
to stay up and not
have to show up
at work, tired 🙂
LOL – sleep well.
I’m up. I got 5 hours sleep. That’s not good. But it should help me get to bed a little earlier (later?) tonight.
I’ve been battling a sleep demon myself — equally as good, as it is frustrating (my recent The Book and BOGO) – you got more sleep than I did – I’m in a juggling act I didn’t sign up for that’s stealing my time. Don’t nap today!!!! 🙂
I never nap, because I don’t wake up for 4 or 5 hours.
I do the same – my naps resemble sleep. Everyone knows if waiting for me to make plans “after I nap” – to go ahead and make them without me – I won’t be up for quite a while lol.
Someone else also has rather eccentric sleeping habits? 🙂
I suspect I am in good company!
I enjoy the humour in so many of your posts!
I try not to take things too seriously. It makes life much more entertaining.
laughing and crying
feels so good
Just going to bed now at 6:41 a.m.
Worked over night going over the first draft of my current WIP before sending it off to my editor this morning at 6 a.m.
Been there – done that. Often. I’ve always been more creative in the middle of the night. Nice to know I’m not the only one.
Went to bed this morning at 7 a.m. after sending my current WIP off to Staples in Kelowna for my editor to pick up. My husband was up 2 hours with me before he went for a 100+ bicycle ride, and I went to bed!
