hey, isn't that buckytom in the second photo?
If I had someone in my family who loved to get up extra early I'd be everywhere before the sun! Unfortunately, if there are no plans, a typical Saturday consists of the three "boys" getting up in the 10:00 hour. My favorite time is in the summer, waking about an hour before sun up, making a cup of coffee and sitting outside on the swing. I love to watch the birds waking up. Usually the hummingbirds are the first ones looking for breakfast, followed by the barage of all the other birds.
Once it's light enough, I like to stay outside and read. I particularly like to read my favorite cookbooks, which are those published in the 20's-40's. Very interesting reading.
