I would not call myself a morning person, but there is something magical about those early moments in the day. Time to be alone and enjoy the quiet of the farm. Time to be productive and tackle a little bit of work. Sarah in Illinois–also not a morning person–has come to appreciate her morning routine. She is here today, sharing a bit about how she starts her day.
Having chickens requires me to get up a little earlier every morning to tend to them. This isn’t the easiest for someone who readily admits she is not a “morning person.” However, I do enjoy the fact that everything is a little more peaceful just as the sun rises. It also allows me to spend a little one on one time with Blitz. We like to play ball and visit with Ruff the barn cat.
These two have comically become good friends.
I think because it is early morning, and they both are still a little groggy from sleep.
When I leave the barn I usually pat Ruff on the head and her head is always soaked in Blitz’s slobbers.
I have begun to really enjoy this quiet time in the morning. It helps remind me to slow down and look around.
Are you a morning person? What do you enjoy about the start of the day? Do you have a pair of unlikely buddies around your house?
Aww. It’s great to meet your Ruff, Sarah. I wonder how she and Ralph would get along. Baxter and Ralph’s relationship is definitely not as buddy-buddy as Blitz and Ruff’s. I would say Ralph tolerates Baxter. She definitely does not allow him to slobber on her. It’s great that Ruff and Blitz have become such good friends.
