Lol, you have company. :biggrin:

Sit reading my tablet, drinking a coffee and nibbling on a muffin, usually until 11ish.

Housework, yardwork? Maybe late morning or after lunch. Maybe.

I worked too hard, too long now I'm trying reap the rewards.
I'm posting this from Traditional lands of the British Empire & the current Lands of The Dominion of Canada.
I also give thanks for this ethos richness bestowed on us via British Colonialism.

as a person who does not sleep well except in the morning I too am not a morning person. 9-9:30am is the most perfect time to get up and start the day. Unfortunately work dictates a different wake up time. However I am could totally stay up late and enjoy the quiet after everyone else goes to bed.

It gets easier to get up when it gets a little lighter in the mornings. Naturally, that is. NOT a time change fan, hoping that mess will be abolished soon.

You and me both. Can't stand changing clocks. It's awesome getting up with the sun though and still have the dog walked before breakfast.

I love watching swans. Sat for awhile watching them yesterday.

The nicest people I know appreciate wildlife. It shows who they really are.
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

I missed the swans at our local lake - never knew them to drop in before. I do love taking photos of every creature in the snow.

I’m an early person, too, Norma. That, and I can’t remember the last time I went out for drinks.
I’d rather sit at the early bird buffet and drinks at home by a fire. Lol. Bed by 9 😂

These were up on the Chilcotin plateau. I saw them at like every open pond on my travels. Here is another swan 🦢 I saw swimming in the Chilanko River.
