Here are a couple:
1) I get the first 2 mugs of steaming hot coffee. If the coffee’s been on for more than an hour it takes on a bitter taste and I won’t drink quite as much. That may or may not be a bad thing.
2) I get to watch the sun rise. Well it’s more the color changes in the sky out the window. The bedroom side of the house gets the actual sun rise, the office/sewing room gets the sun set. Either way the color changes can be quite amazing and awe inspiring. I remember the sun rising when I lived in Las Vegas, I was 5 at the time, this was beautiful and sad all in the same moment.
3) I get to peruse all the news and blogs and emails when most people are sleeping. When I send email out at this time of the morning inevitably someone will ask me why on earth I was up so early. It’s just one of those things. I can get out of bed early and still not get motivated until after 2 in the afternoon. Go figure.
4) I really like the quiet of the morning. No one’s up but me (and the circus Barnum & Bailey) so there’s no radio, no tv, not a lot of traffic outside so I can think. I can think when there’s noise but it’s so much easier when it’s quiet.
