Appreciating life as it is now
I woke up in sheets that still smelled of the sun they dried in yesterday. I had time to write about four pages this morning, and now I'm enjoying the afterglow of an omelet with sharp cheddar, bacon, home grown tomato and roasted red pepper. Rich, smooth coffee made in my french coffee press is inches from my left hand. My house still smells of the furniture polish and floor cleaner I used last night. A happy lab has his head on one of my feet; he got the leftovers from the omelet.
The rest of my day is absolutely packed. I've got errands in three different small towns that will involve a couple of hours on the road. I'm invited to a ladies lunch, have a business meeting later and a personal to do list that doesn't look to be checked off until sometime after midnight. I'm not going to mind the rush because I had this time for me.
