Good talk is like good scenery-continuous,
yet constantly varying,
and full of the charm of novelty and surprise.
Randolph Silliman Bourne
I love this view and it is so worth getting out of bed in the morning.
It turns out the time change has been very beneficial to this farm girl. Take yesterday morning for example. Waking up at four in the morning has its benefits. After that strong coffee and that relatively short wait for the sun to come up, you can pack a lot of things into your day. A marathon of work, some would call it.
The smell of apple bran muffins floats through the house as the sun comes up. The sound of the chainsaw floats through the window that is open a crack. It appears this early morning has advantages for both My Hero and me. There is still much to do before the snows come. He has been outside since before the sun came up.
Out the big window that is streak-free, after finally finding time to remove the grime session, the view is spectacular. Our cows are all gathered around the round bales of hay that were placed there earlier. They pay no mind to the farm girl who stands to stare out the window.
Off in the distance, the twin oak tree that just last week was full of golden leaves, now stands naked. The leaves seem to have disappeared over night, or I was too busy to notice that they were gone.
The field that was left only half cut and then baled before the drying season was cut short, is now as green as a fine spring day. I cannot believe it is November, it came quickly. The sun shines brightly and I jumped in with both feet to tackle the spring cleaning that seemed to have slipped by unnoticed once again. It will now be known as November cleaning. This time change has lots of advantages for sure, that is very apparent. The sound of the timer, the muffins are done.
Well yes, there were a lot of things accomplished yesterday after that time change and that was a good thing. I only have one complaint. The falling asleep at 8pm thing is not something I was prepared for. This morning once again up at 4am after a good night’s sleep. I wonder what will be accomplished today. 8pm does come early.
Oh yes, I am so happy that I cleaned that window, this view makes me smile.
