Sunrise Serenade

When I get up in the morning, I always make my bed before I leave my bedroom...next I head to the bathroom to pee and then I go straight to my computer! I check my personal e-mail, my blog and my shops. I pop into the etsy forums to add my two cents to a couple of "positive" threads that are usually running and then I start thinking about getting my lunch together and getting ready for work.

I get up really early so I can take my sweet old time.

This morning I finished all of my stuff and found that it was only 6:00. I don't leave for work until 6:30, so I decided to take Wrigley for a walk. Before the ugly winter hit, we walked every morning. We both loved our walks, even though it can be a bit creepy when it's pitch black outside.

Wrigley watched me this morning as I put on my jacket and somehow, some way, she knew it wasn't 6:30. Her ears perked up, she got off the couch and she came into the kitchen. She kept a careful watch as I looked around for her leash and as soon as she saw me pick it up....you would have thought she had hit the jackpot!! If she could have yelled, "Woo Hoo" she would have!

I put her leash on her and grabbed a plastic bag to clean up what she usually does when we walk and out the door we went.

I tried to walk her a couple of time in the winter, but there is so much salt on the road that she would start limping because her feet were burning. Even if it was gorgeous outside, the roads were white from all of the salt and we still couldn't walk. Next year we will try boots for her.

We started down the street and I immediately remembered why I love walking in the morning. Except for an occasional car pulling out of a driveway.....it is perfectly silent.....except for one thing......the birds singing their glorious sunrise songs!

There is nothing like it in the world!!!

Wrigley is adorable. Yes, boots for sure, that salt is torture on their paws.
I got my coasters and I LOVE them!!!Thanks!They are really much nicer in person.

I also got the dvd, thanks. I wonder if I would be allowed to make copies of it to give out? If not, I'll just take the one copy to the "Sunshine room" at the hospital.

My favorite time of the day is early morning. It's so still and quiet and spiritual. And Wrigley is just precious. We have a rescue dog, too, and they make the best pets in the world.

WoW! Wrigley was such a cute little puppy! Isn't it amazing how they just know when they are going to get a walk? Aubrey and I called it "W" at our house until they caught on. We are on to sign language now.

Sometimes we even take turns in who gets to tell the dogs that we are going. We love to say "Wanna go for a walk,walk?" They go crazy when the word finally comes out of our mouths.

Wrigley is so cute...I'm not really a morning person but have to be for work...I really like early evenings on a nice summer day. That is the time I always went for a walk...

Ahhh... that post made me long to have a loyal 4-legged, eager-to-walk-anytime-with-you pal again! And to enjoy an early morning walk! Well, one out of two ain't bad, hmm? :) What a wonderful post. Glad to read about such a wonderful, uplifting morning for the both of you. ;)

Wrigley is such a darling dog! So expressive.

I love to walk and every morning I'm in a local park enjoying the sights and sounds. It makes my day!
