Bright and Early

I needed to be up at work early today so when Sam woke up at 4:45 and then Ronnie started yowling away in the hallway, I took it as a sign that I should just get up and go out and run instead of taking the day off or scrambling tonight to get a run in. I finally headed out around 5:45 after the house had quieted down again, and ran the short 3 mile Highland Green loop. The run was pretty uneventful. The legs felt good, and it was a nice morning to be out. Lots of birds up early too! Saw a pair of osprey calling to each other overhead, saw "my" towhee pair along the powerlines, and caught a nice look at a wood thrush along the edge of the woods too.

I love those super early morning runs. So cool that you were visited by Osprey, too. I'm curious about the Ronnie howl/Sam he letting you know she's awake?

Mindy, Ronnie usually cries once Sam has gone back to sleep. Sort of like, well, she was crying and she got some attention., so why don't I try that tactic? Drives us batty!! :-) But we love him... or at least, I do!!
