Today, like any other weekday, I awoke before the birds. 6a.m. I scramble in the morning to pack my son’s lunch for school. I know I could save myself the hassle if I would pack it the night before. I fully intend to implement that practice, one day. We jet off to the bus stop by 7:20.
When I get back, I sip my hot coffee on the porch, surrounded by 11.2 acres of woods. The birds have finally woken up. We have a lot of woodpeckers and titmice. Yup; titmice, that’s a bird. The sounds of nature remind me of a throwback to the days when I lived back in my old town. Not a very wooded area; however, we did have a metro park that I would enjoy trailing.
I would often take my son to the metro park with his bucket in hand, to collect his treasures.
I really enjoyed when my brother would come along for our adventures, too.
This picture was taken right before he ripped a big hole in his shorts. haha
There had been a time when a storm was approaching, and the moody clouds contrasted really well with the crisp land.
My mom is the type that if there were a storm brewing, she’d send us in the basement. There was no fun in that.
One more day till the weekend; then, the birds will wake up before me!! I probably jinxed myself with this, and my son will wake me up at 5:30a.m. Let’s hope not. 🙂
