Calm at the Start of the Weekend

I fell into the white adirondack chair on the deck with my coffee to enjoy the morning. The holiday weekend is at hand and it is going to be at the same time busy and fun.

By the end of weekend I hope to be walking on a beach. But to start the weekend I'll be walking through the dump and recycling area. I will likely be borrowing my neighbor's tractor again to mow--since the refurbished one that I bought will not be delivered until Wednesday.

And somewhere in there is shopping, and tonight a house concert to enjoy.

For now though, I am on the deck in my chair--did I mention that it was wet with morning dew when I fell into it and so now I am damp?

And the birds are singing. Or screeching. The morning is alive and I can actually pause and be part of it.

I am not good with bird calls, but I hear a cat bird, a mocking bird, the racket caused by a woodpecker finding breakfast, a couple of cardinals, and many other birds filling the morning air with the sounds of life.

It is going to be a good day.
