*early* morning

*early* morning

although not by choice… i was up super early this morning!!
3:30… got up and was starving and ate a super healthy snack of fruit loops!
tried to go to bed, but my brain was on a sugar-high, and i couldn’t stop thinking…
working on a new class, and it’s got me all focused… lol… so i got up, wrote a ton of thoughts out on my pink ledger pad… and finished my father’s day gift for my dad… it turned out cute. it’s been sitting in a state of me not being able to commit to which direction to take it for over a week…
better late than never! hopefully i will really send it off!
finished that project by about 5:30 and decided to go for a walk… it’s so perfect at 5:30am. perfectly delightful temp… everything looks so beautiful. took the dog… he’s such a good dog! he doesn’t need a leash that early, and he ventures about 5 or so feet away from me, but never too far. he doesn’t bark at any other walkers/joggers/bikers… he is very trustworthy. he is a little overweight and now is laying on the floor like he just ran a marathon! we only went about 3 miles. i should do that more! when i got back i watered all my front plants and sprayed everything off… you know, it’s a great way to start the day! lots to do today, and i am sure i am going to need a nap at about 10am!
but i guess you gotta get it when you can!

by the way… the email address is FIXED!!!
so email your water photos to [email protected]
i have to say that it has been SO FUN to look through all of them! it’s going to be hard to pick!
thanks for playing!

    I wish I had the engery to do all that in the morning. If I can’t sleep I force myself to go back to sleep…I may have to try that getting up and getting things done.
    peace

    Hey Heidi…just stopped by and had to leave a comment. First off, I was up all night taking a ferry boat across Lake Michigan with my nanny and 4 kids…then road-tripping to Minnesota. Whew! I’m just down the street from our friend Cathy Z!
    Anyway, have to tell you how proud I am of myself that I have scrapped 20 (yes, 20!) layouts since May 3rd, and have them all prepared in an album to submit to the CK Scrapbooker of the year contest. I feel like I “won”- just by doing the pages! It’s been the best thing I’ve done for myself since booking a flight and going to Scrap Etc event. =) ANyway, just wanted to share that with you as you should be proud of YOU, for inspiring me and encouraging me to start scrapping. It’s been amazing. I even found after I flipped through my completed album yet another time, that I have my own “look” or “style”. I am so happy to officially be a scrapper. So, sorry this is long, but just had to say, big thanks for being the real deal in this industry and making me believe I should and could scrap pages. I owe you! Now, I hope we both get to sneak in a much-needed nap today! As usual…sweetly~

    It’s 10:30 and you should be napping right about now. 3:30 is a crazy time to get up, but as long as you were up it was good to be so accomplished. Those kinds of days feel great! //jolenegeorge.blogspot.com/

    This isn’t really related to your post, but I am curious to see if you will be at any of the SB stores in AZ during July 8-21, Keepsake Trends in Suprise AZ, Scrap Therapy in Goodyear AZ, The Creative Quest in Glendale AZ, Scrap Happy Sisters in Glendale AZ, or Scrapbook Attic in Peoria AZ. I will be in AZ for those two weeks and I know you visit SB stores in AZ sometimes, and was hoping maybe I’d catch you while I’m out there!

    I love when I can get a bunch of stuff done in the morning! But then I usually crash hard. But it’s good while it lasts!

    Gosh, Heidi,
    I wish I was like you. You do so much and you’re so awesome and cute! I’m not as talented as you and I don’t have much in my life to talk about. I wish I was as creative as you. You do so much and everytime I read your blog I wonder what is wrong with me that I can’t do as much as you do..and I’m not even preggers! Sure wish I had a perfect life like you do.

    lol I can totally relate to the getting up super early thing! I am due Aug. 22nd & have somehow become a super early riser! It is so annoying because you want to cherish the time you have to sleep before the baby comes and you cant! lol oh well great job on the walking 3 miles thing. I too like Jen can hardly get up to get the mail!

    My littlest one has been consistently getting up at 5 am – – – not so good after working the closing shift at the store until quarter of 12. Eek! I envy you your pep and enthusiasm!! 🙂

    Heidi:
    Yes a nap is always good any time of the day. I was just wondering if you are due in two months, then that means you will have a new born at the Creative Escape? How exciting we will get to see your new baby!!!
    I can’t wait to come to AZ. All the way from Canada and up North to hot sunny AZ. Love it…..
    Hope you enjoyed your nap, I know I did. lol

    Heidi, there must be something to the weather here. I am not a morning person either but I can use the computer at this time completely undisturbed! I haven’t been able to shut my brain down lately either–is it a full moon? Wish we lived closer I could really use a walking partner. We have no dog and I’m not sure it’s safe for a woman to go alone at this time of day… I can sympathize with your dog. I’m overweight too…and I hate it. Bought an eliptical machine and I’m having trouble putting it together. It must be defective–I looked at all the pics and followed the directions! Grrr. Cheers for the gal that did the 20 pgs! Rah!
