6 in the morning

As the title says, it's 6 0'clock in the morning. My husband woke up 'not feeling so nice' so I got up with him, made him some breakfast (poured some fruity pebbles in a bowl and covered them with milk) and did some work. I work as a graphic designer - did you know that? (I feel like Meg Ryan in You've Got Mail, except I'm not writing to anyone in particaular).

I LOVE my job!!

Having literally worked as a 'maid' in two different hotels/motels you tend to appreciate a good job when you have one. I set my own hours, pick my clients and projects, and get to be my own boss. It rocks. I'm so lucky but all credit belongs to my Heavenly Father who gave me the talents in the first place. Without Him I couldn't do anything.

So as I sit here at 6 in the morning I'm thinking - what's up with 6 in the morning anyways? It's not a common time for me to be awake, in fact I know little about such an hour. Being a night-owl I tend to sleep right through it 90% of the time.

Things I'm noticing:
1. It's still dark outside
2. It's wet - maybe because it's raining although I can't be sure
3. My Husband looks hot via computer light

All valuable information if you ask me. Yep, good thing I'm awake right now. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to write this post. What a shame that would have been :)

Tell me, are you up at 6 0'clock often? If so, what do you do? Do you enjoy it?


  1. No! I am not a morning person! I don't chirp like a bird with the sunrise - LOL. I only get up this early to ready the boys for school. Sigh! That's why I LOVE snow days!

    I hope you survive your early morning wake-up call:)

  2. I am always up at 6 AM. That is when my whole family gets moving during the week. All the lights come on and chaos ensues. A little different than your 6 AM

  3. I look hot by computer light? You still had sleep in your eyes, my dear. :)

  4. I am hoping to become a morning person some day ... but as I have 1) a toddler who still wakes up in the night and 2) a very comfortable bed ... the last thing I want to do is get out of bed some mornings!!!

    Thanks for saying hi - I loved Hippo Scraps - good luck with your new venture - it looks fantastic!

  5. The only thing I do at 6 AM is stumble out of bed for a quick pee and then crawl back under the covers for another hour.

    Although, the hubs starts a new job on Monday, so I think 6AM is going to be my new best friend. Yuck...
