In the Early Morning Light . . .

Saturday morning, I woke early as usual and enjoyed the luminous tranquility of the day's beginning. . .
I peeked outside at the tent my visiting son had set up on the deck (can you see its outline there in the confusion of window reflections above?), its tiny interior challenged by the full-size futon mattress he'd dragged in. Apparently he and my daughter-in-law were managing to ignore the sun's clamour. . . After all, they'd ignored the raccoons scampering by through the night. . .
So I poured my tea and sat in contented solitude. . . . Ah, summer. . . .

  1. Hi Mater, your home looks so cosy! I love the window seats - they must have been custom made for you?

    I think you still have the company of wee ones? - enjoy!

    1. It's not a good shot of light fixtures, but I really love hem too. A happy find earlier this year.

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
