5 O' Clock in the Morning

I am up with the birds today! That's if any of the birds are actually up yet. I tossed and turned for a bit, and then thought, what the heck, I will just get up. I am trying to be very quiet so I do not wake the hubby, but more importantly, Bessie the Cat. If she gets up, she'll want her treat. Then she'll want to go out. Then she'll want to come in. And then she will want to play. Of course, this will all make noise and then the Hubby will be coming out, blinking and wondering what the hell is going 

Anywho, life has been motoring about being the lovely thing that it is. St. Patty's Day came and brought with it a race my Hubby took 1st in his age group in, and 14th out of about 380! And his prize was an awesome large sugar cookie that he shared with me. We had our Corned Beef and Cabbage and it was mighty good, though as I get older the cabbage is not so easy on the stomach. :( I watched The Quiet Man, or as my youngest puts it, "the movie where the guy drags the redhead through the fields." All was lovely and good, and I put all my green tchotchkes about me. I at least have green inside even if it is still brown and white out. 

Along came March 22nd, and Hubby and I celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary. I wasn't sure how to mark it and decided that since it already fell on a Friday (which is traditionally our take out chicken and watch Survivor night) that that is what we would do. But I added cheesecake! And it was lovely. 

My love surprised me with seeds to plant this season on our special day too!

The weather turned nicer and the snow has started to melt. But just so that I don't get too eager for Spring, it is supposed to snow At least it will be short lived. But I can actually see my garden beds now. Still no sprouts though. I have been opening windows and doors and letting all the fresh air in. And my mind is going a hundred miles an hour thinking about working in the yard. I want to do so much! But I must be patient and in the meantime I will continue to organize and purge in my attic. I have magazines as old as my marriage up there! Yikes. Got to run, I hear something. Uh oh, Bessie is up! :) Always, Kit

I just have a feeling that every day is good for you. You find so much to talk about. And it's all interesting. Have a wonderful day, Kit, and let us know what happened. Love St. Patrick's day and I am Irish. Sullivan was me maiden name. Diane

Hello dear Kit. Wow, you were an early riser! I might "think" of getting up that early but turning over in bed and going back to sleep always wins. Congrats on your wedding anniversary! Many more years of happiness are wished to you and your forever love. My hubs and I celebrated our 44th this month. Yippah! I've been opening windows, too. It's lovely but still quite ch-ch-chilly here in western Massachusetts. Hope your day today and the weekend ahead is super for you, Kit. Always love your posts. Susan

I love that you are retired and make the MOST of your days. I have a kind of routine similar to yours when I wake up. Luckily NOTHING wakes Terry up. Terry watches a lot of the Western channel. It seems like The Quiet Man, The Sacketts and Lonesome Dove are on a constant loop, lol. He doesn't get around very easily so the Boob Tube is is friend. Congrats to your husband on an excellent win! Our weather is finally breaking. I have been able to get outside with Terry for just a little while to "clean" up winter. Black Eyed Susan VINE????? I want!! Now off I go to the Google Machine to treasure hunt.
xx, Carol

Kit - I don't think I have seen 5 am on any clock since I retired 2 years ago! But hubby and I are talking about getting up early once the weather is a bit warmer, to go and sit by the lake and watch whatever wildlife happens to pass by! Congrats to you both on 41 years … I can tell you are well-suited to each other, and it starts with the type of consideration you wrote about in this post. Like you, we can see the ground in many parts of the yard, but there are many tall piles of snow yet. Patience, grasshopper!

Yay for your hubby! He's a good runner!
I'm ready for spring and flower gardening, too.
That's funny that you are careful that you don't wake up the cat! Our Tim wakes US up! He attacks and jumps on the bed if we don't get up when he's ready.
