People Need to Get Up Earlier!!



I'm a morning person - most people don't seem to be. I'm up usually around 4am, the house is quiet, no one needs "mom" to find anything for them, or "wifey" to help them with an odd job - its the PERFECT time of the day!! Quiet!




Unfortunately - it felt like no one else was awake in blogland or on Etsy. On Monday I started an "Early Risers Chat" in the Etsy forums to see if anyone else was awake. Guess what! There are other crazy people awake early too :) I find new "friends" to chat with every day. What is your favorite time of the day?

  1. I'm not a morning person at all. give me the evening when all work is done.

  2. I do like getting up early when no one else is awake,,,but I really like when everyone has gone to bed and I have the whole house to myself,,so I would say I like the nights better..more functional at night..have a happy day...

  3. I can no longer do early every day. Did that for too long and now just can't do it on a regular basis. My favorite time is mid-morning after chores are done and it's all my time.

  5. I am up at 6 am every morning, and I thought that was early! But 4 am....hummm a bit too early for me.
    But morning is my fave time of day. It is a new beginning where hopes and dreams dawn:)

  6. I'm with you,Audrey!! The earlier the better. 5:00 is my usual time, but if I wake at 4 and am ready to climb out of bed, all the better. I have more creative energy in the early mornings, too. That's when I'm most productive! ~karen

  7. I love the mornings when after my husband is off to work and I go on here and do all my blog, twitter tree, and etsy things, then I can just do it as I need to.
    I do not sleep well a lot of time so I am on here really early, say Audrey where is this chat you talked about?, some mornings I may want to join in!

  8. I've always said that I wasn't a morning person and in a way I'm not because I don't like to talk to anyone in the morning, especially when I first get up. But I really enjoy getting up early on my days off and having that quiet time all to myself to just leisurely lounge around, sip my coffee and do whatever I want

  9. I'm definately a morning person... Love the quietness. The second my feet hit the floor, they don't stop until around 10 or 11PM.

    The very first thing I do when I get up is wash my hands, and get the coffee brewing... Must have coffee!

    I even enjoy the quietness when hubby leaves for work, like this morning I was out at the barn by 7 and took a walk out back to dump the poo sled. It was so beautiful, the ground had just a covering of snow... with coyote tracks cutting through our pasture and across the hay field. I felt bad when I spooked two deer away, they dashed for cover in the nearby woods. The morning was so bright and sunny, a chill in the air, but it felt so good.

    Love my mornings...

  10. I am a night owl! When all the boys ( yes even the big one) are in bed early I stay up until 11:30 or 12:00 have a cup of coffe or tea a snack and I work. It' soooo peaceful. My kids are early risers so I'm not getting anything done that early until they are one the bus. have a Great weekend Audrey!

  12. I am a night owl through and through....my hubs is a morning person, gets up at 4 to go to work when he doesn't have to be there till 8...so it has always made for an interesting marriage!
