upon waking

Sunshine filters through pale blue curtains as the ceiling fan whirs above. Rain is forecast for later, but the day begins with sun. I’m lollygagging and not rushing out of bed. Usually by this time (6:30a.m.) Blue dog woofs from the main floor saying, “Anybody there? Hello. Remember me? I gotta go!” How could I forget?! I’m smiling in anticipation of our morning walk and thankful for the sunshine upon waking. Always. I shall appreciate it all the more, knowing rain is coming around noon.

Home for the night.
Wearin’ fuzzy slippers.
Cookin’ frozen pizza for two middle school boys.
(My oldest son and his friend from next door.)
They are playin’ video games in the basement.
My youngest son is right there with them.
Always.
Home.

NOTE: This is my 600th Tumblr post. Something had to be. Figured it might as well be about family, food and home. Those three things are all tangled up together – at least for me.
