Early Bird - Night Owl

The longer I am off work, the more my timing changes.  I am normally an early bird - like to be up early and have my most productive time of the day early in the day.  When I have extended times off work, I tend to get up relatively early and putter around.  I get chores done.  I get home and eat lunch and then take a blessed nap.   After the nap is my productive time.  It is weird because this runs so counter to the way my working life is arranged.  I am getting into this groove just in time to get back to work next week.

I just returned from church.  I said I was going to stop doing this hour of prayer at this church and start going to my new church.  But on my trip, I realized how important this time is to me.  I have two prayer partners, we have been sharing this hour (5 to 6 a.m. on Thursdays) for a year and a half.  They sat with me for the time my son was in Iraq.  Now their daughter is in Iraq, and I think I can sit with them until she is at home.  So, that is my plan.  

My granddaughters are asleep downstairs with my daughter.  I think I shall take this opportunity to go back to sleep.  I sure had a good day with them yesterday.   I hope to have another one today.  You all do too, OK?

I get up most mornings around 6 AM but on weekends, I sleep sometimes until 8:30 AM, especially if I'm on the boat. It's that rocking motion and the fact that I'm up during the night to check the anchor, etc. Have a great 4th.

I got up this am with a big agenda and plans for a nap also. On work days have to pry my butt out of bed, but on days off I want to make the most of every minite!
