I absolutely love being at home. Getting up everyday and tending the animals is a chore I enjoy. I am an early riser and usually am up around 6:00. I make myself some coffee and sit down and turn the computer on and watch my Stu Varney.

Thought I would take you on a tour of my morning chores. Promptly at 7:00 am I head out so let the chickens out of their house so they can eat and drink. They greet me with soft clucks and I love it.

They all noisily head down the ramp to the food and water.

I sit down for more pc time and coffee and wait for the dogs to rise. They are more lazy and sleep in.

They go out for a wee and then come in and beg for a cookie. Here is the biggest beggar you have ever seen. Already licking her chops.

My big girl Sandy is more patient. Lola is a blur until she gets her cookie.

 At the feed store I buy them in bulk. Little ones for Lola and bid ones for Sandy.

The kitties are even more lazy and sleep in much later. I finally shew them out to go potty. But of course my favorite morning greeting comes from lil' Miss Sunshine. Always the biggest snuggle and kiss when she gets up except for the other morning when she told me that when I breathed on her it was "terrifying." 

Love to watch the girls while I have my coffee and computer time.

  3. Mornings are the best!

    I wake up super early..about 4:00 am.. and I completely LOVE it!
    It's so nice to have quiet time and to get a huge jump on the day.

    Had to laugh at your daughters comment to you.... sheesh... kid can be brutally honest sometimes :)

    Enjoy the rest of your day and your daily routine :)

    Smiles :)

  4. such a lovely calm relaxing way to start the day, love that smile, she's a heart melter!
    That is the best chicken cook I have ever saw, ooo la la , very fancy indeed, all theother chickens would have hen house envy!

  5. Sounds like a wonderful morning any day of the week!
    I get up early too-- and Bree arrives around 7:30 am, if it is cool and breezy--she wants to be outside letting the chickens loose!
    Good times-- Pat

  6. Your morning routine is very much like mine!!!
    Have a good day Elaine!

  7. You have a very sweet morning routine! Love the snuggles and loving looks from all you little ones! hugs, Linda

  8. Sounds like a wonderful, peaceful routine. Morning is my favorite time, definitely a morning person and sounds like you are too. Hugs ~ Mary

  9. I think that the time between 6:30 & 7:30 a.m. is the best. Especially in the warmer seasons. I love to go out and water my plants and put up my umbrellas and sit on my swing and enjoy my coffee. My dogs and cats are all waiting for me to come down in the morning and let them out. Too funny! Cute post....that hen house is adorable!

  10. Your morning routine sounds ideal, and wow, that is a handsome chicken coop.

  11. Thanks for the glimpse into your country morning. Love little Q's smile!

  12. I'm off to "google" Stu Varney, don't know what/or who that is?? That is absolutely the cutest hen house I have ever seen. I don't really understand the "chicken thang". Are they pets? There's a lot I don't understand, huh? But I do know that lil' girl of yours is so.darn.cute. I miss the days when the kids were little.

  13. love your morning routine. It is much like mine, but I don't have a sweet little girl to hug and cuddle in the morning!
