Rainy morning

I woke up a couple of hours earlier than Ron this morning and spent the time reading quietly in my office. Rain is falling softly outside my window, and a mockingbird is out hunting for breakfast under a gray sky. The day looks cold, but I’ll bundle up in a little while and head out to Swinney’s to get hardware for the potting-table cover.

I’m grateful this morning for my new desk, which faces the window (and for the gerbil cage in the window sill). It’s impossible to feel anything but peace while looking out at the rain or watching Juliet work out on her wheel….
