I laid down to take a nap yesterday at around 3:30pm. I woke up around midnight as Steph came to bed. After the hijinks of the last week, combined with the stress of the consecration/reception on Saturday and the annual meeting on Sunday, my body had enough.
The good part about this is that I was able to lay back down and sleep until 5am, when I got up, did my morning round of blogs and email, and made breakfast for myself. Got working by 6am. Although I am not by inclincation a morning person, I work better on a morning schedule. I will get back on one.
One of the benefits of a morning schedule is seeing things like this:
Sunrise against the clouds
More sunrise, more clouds
I should have been out 3-4 minutes earlier; the colors were lots more saturated and vivid. I could see the sky fading visibly as I got the tripod and camera set up.
It’s going to be a good day.
