My first look out the window this morning was at a gray sky. My heart leaped at the thought of a “fallish” day, despite the fact that our weather will once again by sunny and very warm again tomorrow, at least according to the forecast. Autumn is always a great juxtaposition for me, I know that soon all the beautiful green leaves will die and earth will prepare for it’s winter dormancy, but that change is exciting. Although I am no longer a classroom teacher, life seems to start anew in Autumn and I’m filled with the excitement of life’s new possibilities. Several new possibilities will realize soon and I will be sure to share them here.
Since I last shared my thoughts here, Sam and I (as many of you already know) got a puppy. So now our days start with the our adorable Miniature Dachshund named Oliver. He is always about 1000 times more enthusiastic than we are in the morning. Today he leaped from his bed with a song in his heart and dashed for one of his favorite toys. Then we finally were able to coax him to eat his breakfast. This is usually quite the production because he is so excited about life that he forgets his food is right in front of him until we literally begin to hand feed him from his bowl! His excitement about everything never ceases to amaze neither Sam nor me. Although in this photo below is less than thrilled to be at the vet’s office waiting for his next booster shot.
Tomorrow will start sunny and warm, and I will probably begin the day with an iced coffee and flip flops, but today I’m holding tightly to my warm beverage and the excitement of all life has to offer in the coming season.
