Happy Monday, friends!  I have a (quick) question for you.  One of those “would you rather” type questions.

Would you rather go to bed early and get up early the next morning…..or would you rather stay up late and sleep in late the next morning?

For me – that is a no-brainer!  I love mornings.  I am convinced mornings are the best part of the entire day…and I certainly do not want to waste any part of each morning lying in bed.  Of course, I suppose many of us define “morning” differently.  My neighbor begins his day between 4:30 and 5:00 (the rising of his garage door reminds me that he is right on time) and, well that is still the middle of the night in my book. (Actually, with commuting as it is around here, many begin their mornings way early in order to get on the road just as early.  I really do feel bad for them.  Ugh.)  Nevertheless, even if I were to stay up late, I just do not enjoy sleeping in.

All that to say – I had two nights this weekend where I was able to get to bed early.  Earlier than normal.  It was quite nice.  “Early to bed, early to rise……..makes me one happy camper!”  So, do you have any simple pleasures this past weekend?  Share one with us…..and here’s to each of us starting this week off well -and with an extra smile or two.  I hope you will come back on Wednesday – and again on Friday when I will be sharing my monthly “Share Four Somethings” post.  Have a wonderful Monday, friends!!

  1. This is a no-brainer for me as well! I love mornings. I look forward to that first cup of coffee so much everyday. I am so productive in the mornings, too, and start winding down after one or two in the afternoon. When I get sleepy, it’s at that time…and I almost always take a ten or fifteen minute nap. After that I’m good to go for the rest of the day, but I am always up by five. Always. I hope you had a good weekend!

  2. Definitely a morning person…the absolute best part of the day!! Each morning brings newness and a sense of a fresh start. My favorite is getting up just before sunrise and enjoying my coffee or hot tea as I watch my backyard wake up!

  3. I would rather stay up late and sleep in… but my body does not allow me to sleep in. So, I should go to bed early in anticipation of waking up early. I get frustrated when I wake up way earlier than I need to because I feel like I need more sleep and will get grouchy later in the day. On the other hand, I do like to wake up and get a run in- I’m always glad later in the day that I woke up early and did that. So, I have mixed feelings about early mornings and when I wake up!

    1. I have to admit….getting up to run would change the whole attitude of morning for me!?!:) I admire those who love it!
