A little bird told me......

I am an early riser. I go to bed early and often wake too early but if I have things on my mind, I have found it is just better to get up and do them rather than toss and turn and then be too tired to do anything when I do get up! So here I am at o'dark early.

I have figured out how to listen to books while I am knitting. It occurred  to me that I haven't been reading. So now with needles clicking and earphones, I have the best of both worlds.

I continue to enjoy the roses on these early mornings. Jack has been buying them for me at Costco and they have been glorious.

I was working in my studio which houses most of my vintage pottery and I noticed the number of pieces with birds.

Even the bookends on the desk are birds.


I take my lunch to knitting. I usually like to eat by noon at the latest and if I order with the knitters the wrong foods for me end up on the plate. So, off I go with my contemporary Bento box from Publix.

We love corn and black bean salad. We use a recipe from whole foods which you can find here. I add more lime juice. Velva from Tomatoes on the Vine shared this a while back. You can visit her wonderful blog here. I have gotten some wonderful recipes from fellow bloggers!

This morning was much too early but my projects are under control. I shall now finish a gauge swatch of knitting for my next project, play a few games of Candy Crush Saga, and have another cup of coffee. Soon Jack will be up and we will start our day.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Ah yes, the joys of being an early to bed, early to rise person! It's 2:08 AM here and I'm up reading blogs...I'll probably go back to bed about 4 AM and sleep til 6 - NOT my favorite way to start the day :(

Hi Carol, I enjoyed your post this morning. When I can't sleep, I will lay there and read for a while. I see somebody else Likes Candy Crush Saga. My daughter got me to playing it. It's fun. My dil makes the salad like yours when we go out to her house. It is something she has found that her boys likes. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

So glad that you figured out how to knit and listen! Sounds like the best of both worlds to me. I love all your birds. I have a lot, too. You do realize that there are people in the decorating community who make fun of us don't you? LOL! Tough. I love my birds.

Cute socks and now I'm wondering about that game... Hmmm...
