Rainy Morning…how about yours?

A rainy morning. I tried sleeping in, but couldn’t. So here I am, a bit late to the porch, but enjoying the dampness wrapped around, the stillness, the glitter of raindrops on the leaves, where the pole light shines on them through the pecan tree. It’s still warm- 74*, but didn’t turn on the fan. Listening to the sounds of crickets in rhythm–like the running engine of one of those tiny cars–a few twittering birds, and roosters crowing far off to the north and south. And glad those roosters are far off. Oh, and there are the ponds, the pumps making the water fall and bubble. I’m so use to that sound I hardly notice it. Sort of like every good thing in my life.

Are the cicadas gone? Pretty certain the sound is crickets, and that not too loud.

The chair beside me is ready for someone. I think of Jim sitting there, but really, he never much liked these chairs. Yesterday I greatly enjoyed a visit from a friend, who sat there and we chatted up a storm, and she walked around the yard with me and helped me pull vines and weeds. I left the cushions down last night, being generous to the cats. I’ve put towels on them, but it seems the cats prefer elsewhere.

I just looked up. Day is here. I can see clearly into the courtyard now. And beyond the pecan tree and across the pasture the western horizon clears. Life is like that–things are dim one minute, but the next light dawns and we can see. We can count on that, and need to remember in the dim times.

Have a good day, y’all!

  1. Good Morning Dear Friend, I had just a couple of minutes before rushing out the door, first to the doctor and then to another day at the convention center for the ceramic show. (I am amazed from year to the next at just how hard of work ding these shows are. I really must remember before next year!) But as I read your thoughts, a peace and calmness came over me as you shared your morning. I took a moment to just breathe. How I wish that I could be sitting in that chair enjoying the morning sounds and your company. I did have to chuckle about the roosters, while we were on vacation last week, the roosters woke us up every morning at 4:30! They apparently were NOT on vacation! Have a good day, I am off and running as usual. Hugs to you!

    • Darling girl, thank you for taking precious time to send me a note. I loved hearing your ‘voice’. And glad you can experience the ceramic show–hustle and bustle, but living your life! Go girl!
