Each morning for nearly a month now, this has been my view from about 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 a.m. The newspaper, a book, coffee (and more waiting in the heavy-duty thermos), and some knitting keep me occupied while I watch the puppy play.
Not being a morning person, this early routine was not something I looked forward to at first, but as the days passed I liked it more. It's pretty quiet here in the morning. Not many vehicles pass on the street. Occasionally a few people out for their morning walks come by, but mostly I have the morning to myself. Well, I share it with the puppy and with the other dogs. And the cats. And the birds. It's been a good way to start the day before the busyness takes over.
And in the evening from 6:00 p.m. until about 8:00 p.m. I watch the puppy again, but usually with great company.
