On just about every day of the week, I am up & moving well before dawn.
I especially enjoy this time of year when, for the first time, I can view a fully risen Orion in the eastern sky well before the sun comes up amidst a growing hint of autumn in the air.
As my employer's fiscal year ends on September 30th, this is an extremely busy & draining time of year...both physically and mentally. At the end of the day, I have very little left.
As with everything...this too shall pass.
The Mantis rototiller above is ~25 years old. A little TLC and a new sparkplug...and it's mixing my backyard soil ( heavy red clay, grass clippings, shredded leaves and composted kitchen scraps ) into an incredibly fertile mix for next year.
Can't wait to get there...
