Still awake

I need to stay awake now so that I can feed the cats once hubby wakes up at 6 am because he won't have time this morning. If that was not the case I would probably have been able to go to bed/sleep about an hour ago but then I would not have got much sleep. This way I can go to bed after they have eaten (a 30 mins to an hour process - long story).

Anyway, I thought I would blog quickly about how surprised I am how long before it gets light the birds start to sing. It is still pitch black out there (and foggy to boot) and they have been singing for at least an hour!

In other news, my first hand-knitted glove has four fingers and half a thumb!

wretched birds; parakeets start an hour before the natives at full volume too!

I love the early birds - we have a robin here who sings his little heart out well before the light comes in. If I'm awake, it's a lovely sound to start the day.

Yay with the glove knitting! Well done! Knitting and all things yarny are beyond me, much to my mother's chagrin - she can knit, crochet, sew, *anything*, it's amazing. Me... not so much. Not at all! So I'm always impressed by people who can make recognizable things :-).

I find those overly perky pre-dawn birds to be quite depressing. If I'm still awake when they start, I know all chances of sleep are gone.

What's even more annoying is that someone behind our home has a rooster. That @#$%* thing crows at least two dozen times each morning. I know I'm a vegetarian, but rooster stew sounds mighty good in the mornings.
