sky watch friday #48 -sunrise

good morning every blogging!

You might say I'm up with the chickens everyday. I get up at 4:30am and head out for a nice long walk before the day begins. A bit crazy.. I know. But I get to see the beautiful sunrises. I guess here in Massachusetts.. seeing the sun has been a rare thing these days. So.. for my New England friends especially, this is what it looks like. Remember?

The sun beaming or is it my smile?

It's coming. I'm getting excited. Look at it peaking over and between the trees!

Yep.. I'm waiting for a good blast!

And time to celebrate! YEAH! It's here!

A perfect way to start the day!

Gotta Go!
Don't forget to check out the other fabulous SkyWatch Friday photos. Click on picture.


  1. Cute photos...Love the top pic :) Have a great weekend...

  2. Visiting your blog is MY perfect way to start the day Norwood. That smile of yours gets ME smiling every time! It sure gets lighter earlier up there than down here in Florida. By 6am it is still trying to get light.
    Thanks for the early wake up smile!
    love ya,

  3. Happy Friday Norwood!!! You'll have to teach me that smile of yours...I have tried, but I just don't think cats are capable of smiling...maybe that's why we can purr:) You've got me purring!
    love ya,

  4. Wow 4:30 thats early! Great series of photos.

  5. Stumpy also gets up at 4:30 for her walk (run). I am seeing a pattern here... you were both discovered on petfinders, both blue, both love the water, both have wonderful mothers (ok, I am her sister but you know what I mean) both are seriously dememted (I mean that in the nicest possible way) both from down south, both love mules. hmmmm....

  6. beautiful sun rise - we walk that early too - but our sun rises in NYC arent that pretty

  10. Hi, nice to meet you. I'm here to congratulate you on your Golden Hydrant award. I am a follower of Life with Dogs and see that you are a worthy recipient of this coveted award. ;0=)

    I have seen you around but never stopped for a visit. Much to my surprise I see you are a Heeler mix. I am quite fond of your breed, having found one years ago as a 6 month 'ish puppy who lived with us for 15 more years. LOVE your kind!!!
    Opted for a Chocolate Lab once Grits took his Rainbow Bridge trip because of arthritis.

    You look like fun dog with lots of attitude so I may have to follow you.

    Congrats again on the award!

  11. I think it is your smile, Norwood!!

    Beautiful photos!!

  12. Hi, Norwood! We're visiting your blog for the first time--nice to meet you! You look like a VERY FUN guy! :) BTW, we think our new sister Angel is a cattle dog mix, too.

    Maybe we'll see you at Whisker Walk next year. Our human volunteers with Echo Dogs White Shepherd Rescue, and they're there every year.

    Have a great weekend!

  14. Thanks for the link about DogFest! Yeah, mommee and daddee were planning on taking us (it's only about 30 minutes from our house), but they have a wedding to go to, and probably won't be able to take us. :( We'll still work on it!

  16. So glad you were up and about to these Norwood. Incredible colours.

  18. Up barkin' with the lark eh Norwood? Very fab photo's. That sun looks pleased to see you. I was quite wagging to see you too,Mom says she was sure for a second she glimpsed Mr B too, that made her happy.

    Wiry weekend my friend. Eric xxx

  19. What beautiful sunrises you get to see. Mom is up at 4:30 but she jumps in the show and runs out the door without us..
    Of course on the weekends when she is trying to sleep late we get her up around 6. Mom thinks we will go back to sleep.. NOT Heeler's..
