I awoke to sun filtering over the horizon. Soon there was a huge bright ball in the blue sky. These kind of days are so cold but I look forward to them. The sun is a gift. I take a few minutes in the nook off our kitchen, and bask in the warmth of sun streaming through the windows. What a wonderful way to start the day! I think of summer, sitting on the porch in the afternoon sun. I think of the growing season coming, the gardens to reconstruct and the new gardens to install in front. Lots of work ahead, but so satisfying. "Summer's come'n my husband says. I'll just sit here and dream about it a little longer.
