winter upside down

The day started under blankets with the sun streaming in the bedroom window. Winter means that the sunlight is miraculously at eye level, tickling me into consciousness, teasing me with the day outside.
With breakfast as my companion, I’ve welcomed the sun today as it beat back the evening chill to bathe the garden with a comforting heat and tranquil skies. The rustling leaves have reminded me that I have a weekend to recharge after a tough week. The birds overhead remind me of my blessed and free life.
And now as the wafts of a BBQ spread their tendrils over the neighbour’s hedge, I smile for I know others are enjoying the day too.
Happy weekend one and all.
