My regular wake up time is around 5:45 AM. That gives me enough time right now before daylight (the start of morning chores with the animals) to let out the dogs, feed the cats, stretch, make coffee, and sit down to emails, writing and graphic design work for an hour or so before full light and the animals are ready for their breakfasts (usually around 7AM). This morning I did just that, like usual, and have had a pretty productive morning. I'm working on a logo for a fiber farm, send a food truck final design files, and sent updates to two other clients as well as the delightful balance that is moving chicken tractors to fresh grass, having Gibson move the sheep from the horse paddock to their own pen, and the usual pig sloppin' and water haulin' that is my morning workout. Here I am with coffee at 7:30 and the farm is quiet. It's that special quiet that people who raise livestock come to savor like a sip of good brandy. Right now, all is well.
