Scotty and I arrived at the lake yesterday where we’re going to be spending a week with his family. It was a surprise birthday trip in honor of his 30th! A bit early – birthday not until July – it hit at a moment when we were both itching for a change of scenery. We arrived late Wednesday and spent yesterday getting caught up with family and on sleep. Thanks to jet lag I’m the first person up this morning and I love the quiet.
I love early mornings – no one else is around, it’s quiet. Plus there are sights that melt away as the sun rises and only the early risers get a chance to see a world apart from the hustle and bustle that comes later.
I also caught a sweet little family of geese making its way down the little creek to the lake.
And a little while later it seemed that the entire goose population of the lake was getting together for a playgroup date.
Over the next week I’m hoping for several early mornings – mornings where I can enjoy the quiet and get breakfast cooking before anyone else is up. Right now my banana nut muffins are about to be done and people are stirring!
