A Perfect Day
As I sat in my office before daylight this morning, I could see an incredible pink glow coming through the window, so I grabbed my camera to get some shots of this beautiful sunrise. “Sky’s red in the morning, sailors take warning” my mother used to say. And sure enough, we had a nice little thunderstorm later in the day.
I almost didn’t make it to the blog tonight, due to a very busy but fun-filled day. In addition to working a few hours on some new digital projects, I took occasional breaks to feed my new sourdough starter, look through some old cookbooks for new inspiration, peek at the dough rising in a big steel bowl, and walk through the garden to see what’s going on out there.
The squirrels had paid a visit again, but they seem to have abandoned their scorched earth policy. Just a few leaves chewed off here and there, and nibble marks on a few more. They’re now more preoccupied with acorns, which is a great thing. And I managed to shoot one of them . . . well, not in the way you may be thinking:
And I noticed my little Clematis vine has finally given me a gorgeous bloom.
After a beginning like this, I knew it just had to be a perfect day.
