Morning person - 4:30 am.
Morning for the most part. Usually at least twice a week I start work at 4AM, so that means a 3 or 2:30 AM wake up. (The cats enjoy breakfast at that hour and expect it every day now.) Flip side is it means a very early bedtime which was difficult in the Summer when it was still light out at 8 or 9PM. If I can nap in the afternoon I can keep going a little while into the evening. I am on vacation this week, so I may be able to see where my real natural rhythm is. Zzzzzz.
Hmmm...I go to bed around 11 or 12 and I'm up by 4:30 or 5. What does that make me? One that doesn't want to miss out on anything I guess!
I'm like this, I go to bed late and am up at 4:10, 5 if I'm not leaving the house early or don't have anything to do that morning.
Clearly, I am a morning person. I have not used any kind of alarm clock in years! I just wake up - anywhere between 4 am to 5 am. I too love the quiet of the morning. I say my morning prayers before I even get out of bed. My "good morning" to God is what starts my day off on the right foot! Although it is now dark in the morning, I still love my early morning time.
I walk my dog, Jens past all the dark houses of sleeping people, just he and I in the now crisp Fall New England air. And soon our feet will be crunching over a soft blanket of un-tracked white fleece. The first tracks of the morning!
But, the down side of being a morning person is that I usually go to bed with the birds! *laugh*
