Oh kids. The sun? This morning? Pouring in. Filling the room with light.
I just snapped these pics 30 seconds ago because a) I must share the warmth of this yummy morning light and b) anything to distract/delay me from work I MUST do this morning because hello-- I have procrastinated as long as humanly possible.
I want to be good, I really do-- I want to send out the 847 emails I must send. I want to finish the database and clean my closet and write letters and make phone calls, walk the dogs, meditate, make a healthy breakfast and do everything that needs doing yesterday that I put off until today-- but oh man, all I want to do in this moment is lay in the sun.
So instead, I moved my "office" into this front room where the sun can shower down around my shoulders and I will try not to be distracted by it.
Part of this savoring is that yesterday Christine and I (plus Amy and little Vijay) drove up to Portland, ME to visit with the amazing Amanda and Annabel and it was pouring rain. Pouring rain. Lucky I wasn't behind the wheel or we would never have gotten there (read: am an octogenarian when it comes to driving in bad weather). Turns out Michigan produces good (young!) drivers as Christine just barrelled through.
But it was a gray, rainy day from start to finish so this morning's light feels all the more soothing-- though I must say-- hanging with the soule girls at Arabica and Duckfat-- chewing the fat and talking creative projects (as well as consuming milkshakes and belgian fries--omg!) had its own cozy sparkling mojo to be sure.
But now-- I am here. It is WEDNESDAY-- oh lord-- we are talking the middle of the week and I need to nail my butt to the chair and get some work done stat.
I'm thinking I might need to move my computer back into the real office-- I mean, is it even possible to work when the lure of the sun to the couch is this strong?
