Can you stop yawning

when I am talking to you?


I’m not yawning, I’m

trying to say something!

Yahee! I am back into the swing of my normal routine again. I was up and out of bed looking bright eyed (and bushy tailed too) at ten past four this morning! I LOVE starting my day this early.

Little Raafie tries so hard to get up with me at four o’clock in the morning, but a great weariness keeps him in our bed, and he looks at me at with an apology scribbled across his eyes. However, later he pops up to my studio to make sure that I am still here on the farm with him somewhere.

What am I grateful for today? That I got so much done and cleaned.
