The wind is harsh this morning. Gusts are causing the siding on the house to creak and moan. Being a light sleeper, this is what woke me shortly after 5 am. I wasn’t ready to be awake, but I tossed the covers aside, picked up Buddy (my dachshund), and started the day.
As I start jotting down thoughts for this post, it’s a little past 7 am. I have already finished a small load of laundry. I’ve had two cups of fantastic coffee, a 50-50 blend of Monsoon Myst and Honduran Blend from our local Furnace Hills Coffee Co. I’ve got a coffee maker that grinds the beans and makes the pot of coffee with the push of a button. How I savor the smell of freshly ground coffee on my weekend mornings!
I finished reading “The Buried Giant” last night. If you like a fantasized-historical account of the Britons and Saxons post-King Arthur, full of a mist that robs the people of their memories, a she-dragon, monks, knights, etc., it’s a good book to read. Honestly, don’t think that this is weirder than it is, but what I like about the book as much as the story is the book’s binding and jacket. The jacket reminds of linen. I wanted to read the book, and when I picked it up and felt it in my hands, I knew it had to be on my bookshelf. I never judge a book by its cover, but in this case, if I had been wavering on whether to buy it, I would have after seeing it.
Short post today – it’s a busy day, lots to do like grocery shopping, more laundry, and all the other fun weekend stuff that gets crammed in before the work week starts again. Have a blessed day, everyone!
