I live in a city that gets a lot of sun.
Wednesday, August 13, 2008
According to several online resources, the average days of sunshine per year is between 300 and 350+ . So when a day like today occurs, we desert dwellers enjoy it. Well, at least this desert dweller does.
When I woke up this morning it was overcast and cool. It's the kind of morning that makes you want to brew an extra pot of coffee and have your friends over for a bite of something homemade.
It's the kind of morning that whispers ideas of sitting under a blanket and reading all day long.
It's the kind of morning when I am tempted to skip the gym, the housework, and the correspondence.
Not to avoid people, or places or things. But to enjoy what almost never comes.
I know there are places where this kind of day is the rule, not the exception. I'm not sure I could live in a place with day after day of dark skies. But today, it makes me happy.
Speaking of happy....
I ran out of fiction books to read. Which is like running out of coffee in this house. I am hesitant to borrow from the library right now because of the move, so I perused my book shelf. I think I am going to start the Mitford series all over again.
Yes, clouds and Mitford.
Could it get any better?
