The View From my Windows

Every morning he brings me coffee and opens the shades on our south facing windows.


I sip and see the sunrise waking up the trees.

By the time I need my second round, I slowly, tenderly, tip-toe downstairs, in hopes that I won't wake the dog, who'll need a pat, and want to go outside.


If I'm successful, and sneak back upstairs, she'll sleep and I won't have to open the door to the frigid morning...
...and then wait for her to come back.

On a winter weekend I might view the coziest sight of all...
Of all the things I love to see when I look out my window, this is the one I love the most...

We joke that he's the king of this castle, in his sherpa-lined flannel and red ball cap.

We joke, but its true.

As I care for the alligators that live in the mote the home and its inhabitants, he actually braves the cold (even for the dog) and surveys the land.

Yes, that is my favorite view of all...

Of course, I love it when the woodland creatures come out to play...

I took this video several weeks ago...you can hear me talk in my best Mutual of Omaha voice...which quickly gets set aside for all the excitement.

If you think I get excited about this "huge-little family", you should have seen me the day a mama deer was trying to graze while her twin fawns were trying to nurse...now that was an amazing view from my window.

Happy Friday!

I love this post--the various views from your windows. What a lovely idea.

PS. You totally have a movie set hallway.

I still laugh at Gretchen of the West and His Girl almost sending us to Paradise early when we screeched to a halt in the middle of the highway to observe nature.

Good times.
