I'm sitting here in the quiet of this morning, looking out the window in my office. The sky is a beautiful light blue, the sun is shining, the air is crisp. It's so beautiful - and so unusual for the end of December. By now we should be having gray skies, low clouds, snow or other cold precipitation.
Am I complaining? Not a bit. I love this kind of weather. It uplifts you and soothes the soul. Not to mention, is easier on the heating bills. Plus middle son begins his return drive to Florida tomorrow - another long haul of over a thousand miles. For that, he doesn't need bad weather.
Except for the cat, it's also very quiet. Nobody else is up yet. This is my time of day. I use this quiet time to take care of e-mail, blog, some writing, anything I feel like doing in the quiet of early morning.
I haven't written anything for the past few days - the hectic schedule, relatives, celebrations, etc. have put a crimp in my writing time. But that doesn't mean I haven't been working on my stories. If you read yesterday's blog, you'd know I've been working through the writing in my head. I do that a lot. I work through whatever project I'm embroiled with in my mind and when I get to the "ah ha!" moment, I scribble like crazy to get it all down before I forget. Sometimes I work it out on paper, but many times, I just run through stuff in my brain before it reaches the writing stage. This doesn't work for everyone, but it seems to work for me.
So now I'm going to go ponder the improbabilities of my story and enjoy a nice cup of hot tea and bagel. May you all have as great a day as this one is starting out to be.
