Oops, I missed the Bluebird Poll! I'm definitely a night owl. It's the rock princess in me 'fo 'sho!

Unfortunately I think I would be the burning the candle from both ends type! I would sleep in if I could! I was on the WWC site this morning and I see that a little while ago they featured you. So I had to come over and take a look! What a beautiful site you have! Your pictures are amazing! For Christmas I got a new Digital SLR camera and have recently started taking photography lessons which I love. I tell you I sure have a new found appreciation for beautiful pictures! I don't think if I lived to be 150, I would ever learn everything I needed to know!! I see you are from the Lower Mainland. So am I. Yay! Canada! I live in South Surrey and I'm a Special Ed Teaching Asst, in Delta. I'm glad I stopped by and I will be back again! Enjoy the rest of the weekend before that rain starts up again!

I didn't take your survey but I will find out this week if I can be an early bird...my job at Pottery Barn's call center has changed hours and I will be leaving for work at 5:30 in the a.m. and work until 2:00. I just pray I don't sleep past the alarm. L.O.L.

Hi Koralee!
I'm in that last category:
7% --- burning the candle at both ends~
I guess that makes me a "rare-bird."
heehee
Admittedly,
I really do need "up-too-late'rs annonymous"
!!!
I'd sing with the early birds much, much better!!
A cheery day to you, Koralee!
~Maria

Catherine said...

Karyn Bernard (French Charming) said...

Julie Harward said...

Yup I'm one of those night owls...A fun poll Koralee! :D

Jeanette said...

I one of those that burn at both ends. Love the pic Have a great week

Martha said...

what a fun poll Koralee!!! And of course LOVE your picture :)

Terra said...

I am a follower of your blog but somehow missed this poll. Good question.

Kelly said...

Oh I'd be a bartender! Except I'm a shift worker so I must have messed up your poll!!!

GardenofDaisies said...

Oops, I think I missed your poll. For years I was a morning person. Early to bed and early to rise. But the last year or so it has been so difficult to get any decent sleep (the M word) I lay awake for hours, first too hot, then too cold, can't get comfortable, toss and turn all night long. Not fun. ON weekends I can catch a nap to help make up for missed sleep. So I guess I fall into the category of burning the candle on both ends... but not by choice.

FrenchBlue said...

Dear Koralee~
All good to know! Thank you my sweetness for always showing us the Most FUN and the Most BEAUTIUFL!!
Have a great week!
XO

Susan said...

Oh how I LOVE your blog! I appreciate every comment you leave me, too! I don't know how you manage with so may followers! Thank you, Koralee for the joy you add to my life!
Blessings!

Megan said...

How fun is this little poll??? I missed out on submitting my vote...but I am definitely burning the candle these days! thanks for the beauty and sweetness you bring with each of your posts!

T's Daily Treasures said...

Last nite I was talking to a friend at 10 pm and her kids were still running around making noise. My kids and my husband had already been in bed by 9 pm. That's usually the routine at our house. I stay up a bit later to have a bit of quiet time, crochet and just chill before hitting the hay. I wouldn't be able to get up at 6 am if I didn't sleep early. Don't know how anyone manages to focus on so little sleep. Wishing you a fun and fabulous week. Many blessings, Tammy

Vicki said...

Hello, sweet girl,
I found your poll very interesting. I am not surprised that there are so many early risers. I know among my friends here there are many more early risers than night owls, like me. I hope you have the loveliest of weeks, Koralee! Vicki

Beach Vintage said...

I can handle being a bartender, at least I can have a drink or 2 whilst I am working.

Kellie Collis said...

I have been burning the candle at both ends for weeks now - so silly xx

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh yeah, I'm in that high-percentage group!

Helen McGinn said...

And now I'm in a separate group...insomnia! Aargh. :O)

hometown girl said...

how fun! i hope you had a nice weekend! xo susan

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Interesting results. I really need to try to stop burning both ends. I won't give up the a.m. stuff...so my new challenge is going to be to turn off the lights a little earlier each night.

sarah-jane down the lane said...

Hello gorgeous!

thanks for your lovely birthday wishes and well done on all those brilliant golden medals at the Lympics!Hooragh!

ps I am an early birdy!

My House of Giggles said...

I'm an early riser this morning, my boys are back to their 5:45 am antics. Oh what I wouldn't give for just one more half hour or so. I think there's a difference with waking up on your own, and being woken up. I definitely prefer to get up when it's a little light out!.

ps...I just found out that a good friend of mine is friends with your daughter's sister-in-law...haha...now that's a mouthful! small world:)

Happy Monday! xoxo

Jacqueline said...

Tracey said...

Happy new week ~

theUngourmet said...

Unfortunately, I find myself in the no sleeper category with my dear, sweet son being feverish for the past couple of nights. I used to be a morning person and now I find myself up late to get in a bit of "me" time when the house is quiet.

Luiza said...

How great of you to make this list!

I guess I´m the one that "burns the candle from both ends", hehe!

Have a lovely monday!

Hugs/
Luiza

Beatnheart said...

I guess I'm a baker!! Making cookies right now as a matter of fact..I enjoy your site very much..Cynthia

gina said...

i am a night owl blodoed creature forced to live in an early bird world(became a mom of 4)- though i have to be dragged out of bed, the latest of all of my family and i dash to bed exhausted now, so I guess i am currently a high-nooner.

Duchess of Tea said...

Koralee darling this was a great idea, thanks for sharing the results. I think I fall in all the categories, I am a night owl most of the time, however, I get up at 5:30 each morning and during the day I burn both sides of the candle and then some. It explains many of my faults, I'm affraid.

Take care
Love & Hugs
Duchess

Teresa said...

Well I'm so sad!
I must have missed your post about the a.m. vs p.m.!! I'm an a.m girl alll the way! I'll rise and shine just to drink my special cup of coffee. Been sipping lots of tea at night...helps me not to eat! ;o)
And I am loving those orange tulips!
So funny...we are so much alike!
Greg brought me a huge bunch of flowers home from Pikes Market...daffodils...and tulips and fur tree branches. The tulips are bright orange like yours with the yellow outline...I've been waiting on them to open up to see what they are going to look like...and now I see yours!!! ;o)
Hugs to you my sweet friend!
xxooxx

Kristin said...

I'm a burning the candle at both ends kinda gal. Gotta stop that!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

I missed the poll too, but I'm a night owl without a doubt. I've been one all my life. I wish I could be a morning glory though! I loved the tulip photo. They're my favorite flower.
Blessings,
Marcia
