Sunrise and Snow

sunrise and snow
I woke up at four O'clock this morning, so instead  of tossing and turning in bed I decided to go downstairs and get a little work done. I made a cup of tea and sat in my office and started to go through some notes that I have been preparing for a lecture I am to give later today.

Bella my beagle came into the office and made her presence known. Molly, my yellow lab, and Blue were sound asleep in the next room generating a loud chorus of snores. Bella, the alpha dog, is usually very vocal but this morning she just came in and sat quietly near my desk. I think she just wanted to get away from the snoring or just looking for some company. As I sat and finished the last few notes Bella was content to sit there in the quiet.

 Before I left to the university, Bella and I took a  walk through the vineyard. A gentile snow had fallen last night and the early morning glow from the sun starting its climb into the morning sky made for a peaceful way to start the day.


  1. What a beautiful beginning to the day.
    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Ahh! Peace and solitude. No better way to start the day!
