I woke up earlier than usual this morning, before the dawn. This gave me opportunity to watch the sun paint a desert-like scene on the low-lying clouds. The warm brushstrokes blended into a cool ocean of blue above. Higher up, the crescent moon shone clear and bright.
Within 10 minutes, the sun was filling my home with a rosy glow, which I found to be both relaxing and energizing. I have a lot that I want to accomplish today, but have peace of mind because I know there is enough time to do it all.
This morning I am interviewing Mendy Sellman, who specializes in naturally raised meats, for the first Full Time Country Woman profile. While I am out and about, I plan a nice walk (with camera and binoculars) at my favorite nature spot. A writing session awaits for when I return home, along with the 'have to' chore of laundry. Clean clothes...what a good thing to have available. Our closets have been thinning out as the laundry hamper grows to bursting its seams. The past few days found washer problems because of a frozen water line. That's my excuse for letting laundry pile up, and I'm sticking with it!
But that's for later. This is now, and I am heading out the door to catch up on life with Mendy and maybe buy a roast for tomorrow. Yum!
