Peach State says: The Early Morning View
There is a hazy wet blanket laid over my house this morning. The droplets will slowly begin their trek down the screen as evaporation, from the traditional southern summer sun, will take care of the rest. This dampness alters my perception as I try to check for early morning walkers before letting my unleashed beast (my precious princess) go out for her first duties of the day. I know it will be a muggy, humid day and sigh at The Early Morning View!
The heaviness in the air whacks me in the face as I slowly open the door for the semi-panicked shadow. She races out the door before I have time to sound the all clear. Relieved she visits every leaf hanging low under the weight of the morning dew. She makes her way back to the stairs and shakes then begins her slow sloth-like climb. [She is an old girl of 13 and the five front steps are better than the 16 steps off the back deck! ;)]
My precious princess retrieves her treat and continues on her morning routine. Into the dinning room she goes to the lifted blind and peers out the window. She stands and snorts and tried to look between the blinds…she could see nothing. Giving up she returned to the kitchen where I was preparing breakfast for hubby and the oversized cups of espresso.
After a short time upstairs with hubby I head back to my haven to write. I glance toward the windows in my family room and see the moisture is beginning to vacate the small squares of the screen.
I will need to dress cool today and hope that everywhere I find myself there is moving air. I don’t need air conditioning…just moving air! Otherwise I am afraid my face will resemble the screens as the non-dew moisture rolls from my forehead. [Note to self…do not wear liquid foundation for the outing this afternoon!] “That would not be a pretty sight!”
I am almost finished with my first Venti skinny vanilla latte’ of the day and I have plenty to do on my list of scheduled chores. I only hope the sticky moisture disappears quickly…I do love looking out the window as the world passes by. “Well maybe not the entire world…but my little corner!” Take a moment a glance at your window…enjoy…The Early Morning View! Have a great day!
