Sunrise this morning before my run. I’ve been contemplating sharing this, it’s something I’ve kept rather close. Basically, for the very first time in my entire life – I run. And I enjoy it! Stats-wise for the record: this morning I ran 2.75mi in 28min followed by a 5min cool down. First mile was run in 9:27 and I am super happy about that! An under 10min mile? I’ll take it! And I hope to improve it.
This weekend was warm.
Cut offs warm – sitting bayside in the sun, feet propped high chatting with my sisters while a dozen sailboats float like dandelion fluff on the water. Two little Key West Doves cooing under my feet on the rocky shore. 7 kayaks paddling fiercely against the tide not even a stone’s throw offshore. Coming home for the first game, digging around looking for my circular 8s, pulling out straight 9s instead. Working a swatch with doors and windows wide open. Sun dappling through the gumbo-limbo while itty-bitty Palm Warblers flit between the hibiscus and the banana tree flipping their tails coquettishly at me when I step into the Florida Room. Chilled white wine for me, spiced Golden Monkey for Hal (like kissing &*%# potpourri). I now have 5 strong and sensual, golden and sparkling ales to savor.
My swatch is 1/2″ too big. Where are my circular 8s??? Does anybody remember what I was last knitting on them?
What a splendid dawn – for the very first time since Spring, I have thrown open the windows! The coolest, rain-washed breeze is gusting into my bedroom as I sit at my little white writing desk. I feel so revitalized! I live for this day, the day when the barriers between inside and out can be lifted.
The tiniest of wrens, a slate grey one with a golden tail, is swooping between the gumbo-limbo and the banana trees while the doves march round and round in their silly circles on the ground waiting for the seeds to miraculously fall onto their heads when some other, braver, bird risks the wrath of the mockingbird and tries to grab a snack of black sunflower seeds.
I can smell the enticing scent of the sea.
