Beautiful Morning

Hi! Pull up a chair and have a cup of coffee and a piece of cinnamon toast with me. I love cinnamon toast. I liked it even better when I was a kid and white bread wasn't my enemy, but I still enjoy butter and cinnamon-sugar on my whole wheat, multi-grain, Publix Premium toast.

It's such a nice morning. It feels like autumn... of course, today's date tells us it is autumn... but I mean it actually feels like autumn. There's a strong breeze; cool and crisp, not warm and heavy, and the sky is cloudless and deep blue. I don't have a thermometer handy, but I think it was actually under 70 degrees when I woke up this morning! I was thinking before I got out of bed that it might almost be time to break out the long-sleeved pajamas, as I was actually a little chilly! Of course, the ceiling fan was on full blast; that might have contributed to the chill.



"Even if something is left undone,

everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."

- Elizabeth Lawrence


Yes, on a morning like this, sit still and take time to enjoy it. For me, in SW Florida, it's not to watch the leaves turn, but to watch the palm fronds gently sway and the fish jump in the canal while the early morning glow of the sun glistens on the water. Those things I can honestly enjoy in any season down here, but on a morning like this when the temperature is cool and the breeze is pleasant...
it's wonderful. {{{ heavy sigh and a wistful smile }}}



Jolt...

Reality check...

Ack! Time to go to work...



Okay, well, that was nice... but I gotta go!


Have a wonderful day - and may it continue to feel like autumn (which, obviously, makes me feel a little dreamy).


Caio.
