natural alarm clocks start the day
Today was our last perfect (and perfectly hot!) day before our cruise to sandy beaches and ocean views; one of those amazing (and tiring) days. It began with my waking to the wonderful natural alarm clocks outside my windows around 6:30 a.m. After coaxing myself out of bed, I walked down to visit the bees and ran into our neighbor, Gardener R, who was planting red onions--methodically and perfectly, like creating art. Breakfast in our sunny kitchen, admiring my own seedlings sprouting, made way to a day full of running errands for our cruise; last minute shopping excursions; a visit to the library I work at, to show it off to RugbyGirl and TSO; dinner; finally packing. It is with a sigh of relief that I am officially packed and ready to go.
4 a.m. can't come early enough. I want to be on the road, heading to the airport, heading towards the next great adventure.
