The Sound....of Silence

This morning I sent Punkin off to school with Mr. Daddy. I'm taking today off so that I can get some stuff done before our trip. Bubba is still at his MeMe's house, though we will be picking him up this afternoon.

So, I grabbed my 3/4 C. Honey nut Cheerios, 1 cup fat free milk and my coffee and sat out on the back deck.

The sun is coming up over the trees and it is so quiet, except for the birdsong. There are so many birds that you would almost think you were in a bird sanctuary. The air is still cool(ish), though somewhat damp. (Please ignore our dying grass -- anything that gets full sun has been cooked. We need to re-seed with a different kind).

So, I'm off to do some laundry. Make some lists. Do some grocery shopping. I may post one more time before we leave, but next week I plan on having no internet connection, so it might be at least next Friday before you hear from me again.

Oh, and thanks for all the book recommendations. I checked out a few and have put the rest on my TO READ list. You guys are great!

Oh my goodness! If I could look at those trees every morning, I would be in heaven!

I love to hear birds sing in the mornings... you lucky duck!
