Favorite Things Friday (FTF)

So my favorite this week is getting up early.  Don't get me wrong, I would rather sleep in, but when I don't I wonder why I ever want to sleep in.  You can get so much more done if you get an early start .. traffic is lighter .. the lines at the grocery store (starbucks) are shorter .. and you can see sunrises.


If you'd like to post one of your favorites or if you just want to see what other people have as favorites, go over to Quilting in My Pyjamas and check things out.

You're so right. I'm trying to make mornings one of my favorites too.

Wow, you live in a beautiful spot! I'd get up early for that view anytime. Thanks for sharing.

That's a beautiful sunrise. Having been awoken at 5 this morning by a ringing telephone, I can't say I feel the same (today, anyway). But I do know what you mean about getting a lot done if you get up and go right to it.

Happy FTF!

Lovely photo...I too just love the mornings and the peace and quiet we experience here at the lake in the summer. A sure sign of autumn is the fog or mist on the lake in the mornings and today we had the first fog.

I treated myself to a sleep in this morning and I already know my entire day is going to be out of whack . Im running two hours behind schedule. I love waking early for all the reasons you mentioned and because I get a jump on the day and have some time to myself in relative peace and quiet!

I'm quite partial to watching the sun rise too. Your sunrise is gorgeous.

Getting up early is a definite favorite for all the reasons you mentioned. Watching the sun come with your second cup of coffee is the best.

What a lovely sunrise, I have to admit I don't see many of them , but when I do you're right, I wonder why I don't rise early more often.

I get what you mean but I love to sleep in till 7 o'clock. The day is just too loooong otherwise. Guess it just depends whether you are a daytime person or a night time person.
Cheers

I guess we will just have to agree to disagree on this one... though I do love a sunrise from the other side :)

Fabulous favourite - and I know the early mornings are the best, but sometimes I just like to stay under the covers in my little cave. All to soon it will be summer and the sun will have me up at some ridiculous hour so I think I will enjoy the next month or so til then and just take my time.
Enjoy your beautiful sunrise.

I love to get up early when we are on vacation. We usually end up somewhere by the ocean and I love those sunrises...in the middle of nowhere, they are more or less boring.
Great favourite
