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.

onward

A winter storm is forecast for today. The sky is keeping us guessing with dark, gray clouds hanging low on the right side of the highway, and blue sky peeking through a bit on the left. Hoping blue sky wins (always), but that wind is blowing something fierce. Time will tell. For the moment, moving onward, heading North.
