It's been a while since I started my day at 4 AM.  It used to be a usual thing for me.  I used to rise early to get ready to catch the 6:08 train to NYC while working.  Sometimes taking time out to prepare some puzzle pieces so I might stitch on the hour and a half train ride.  Imagine that.

And then early rising just became a habit.  Since I moved here, not so much.

This morning , because my allergies are so bad, I can't breathe.

seed saving

Seed collecting has begun. Surely there will be another spring, of one kind or another.

ok get to it

And I really need to get to Alphabet Soup.  Today I begin againMostly there is quilting to be done.

There were a few more  A  patches, but it's early and I am foggy , tomorrow...

  1. Yeah, the allergies have been nuts! I’ve never been a morning person, no matter how much I Want to be! I just love bed and sleep more 🙂 However, I notice that lately I am waking a bit earlier. I so often think of Michelle, doing it her way, whatever way she wanted to. Sleep-Wake-Nap-Wander-Make-Sleep-Read…no schedule or commute needed. Sounds lovely.

  2. Hope allergies are better soon. It’s miserable when they affect sleep. Keeping a close eye on the indigo that I am trying to get to set seed. Going to dye with the rest this weekend….hopefully more yarn for my insomnia blanket. 🙂

      It was 46 here this morning. All my indigo has gone to seed except a late patch I started. Did some dyeing yesterday to use up some very unhealthy plants that had had enough…ha. still some blue left tho.

    Good morning! May the day’s sunshine burn off the fogginess 😉
    I was never a “morning person” when young ( more like a “burn the midnight oil & then some night owl”!!) but now, I love the peace of early morning, time to think quiet thoughts.
    Time to save seeds here, also…
    “A” is for Alligator today…

  4. I love early mornings. Today I woke up before sunrise, felt energetic after a week of wanting to loll about in bed. I’m collecting seeds in old pillow cases. Pop the dried plant in head first and shake it.

    I have Never been a morning person.. would rather stitch til 3 am and sleep til 9! It was tough back when I needed to work, but always lived close to jobs and could make it there in 10 minutes. I almost always see the sunset and never the sunrise. I enjoy your early morning pictures!
