Savoring Summer Mornings

Ahhh...picture a sixty degree August morning, with a slight breeze and low humidity. Coffee in hand, I'm sitting on the screened porch watching the hummingbirds sip nectar. Sunlight is filtering through my ferns.  Rowdy dog is snoozing at my feet. Bright sunflowers, zinnas, morning glories and petunias are blooming nearby.

What a peaceful way to begin a Monday! I'll get around to my daily routine in a little while. Right now I want to enjoy this gift for a bit longer.

Useful Notion: Take every opportunity you can to savor life as it comes to you. The little things are sometimes the most important.


Life is what we make it. Always has been, always will be. - Grandma Moses
