It's spring...

part of the mural at the Philbrook

It's the most delicious morning.
I woke up a bit ago. No alarm, no place I needed to be, nothing particular I needed to do.
I stayed in that sleepy haze for a while, enjoying the blue tinged room, watching the light turn from gold-edged to bright white.
Stretching and feeling the soft cotton sheets against my skin.
Thinking that I still have five days left of spring break.
Smiling.

Sloane is still sleeping soundly; she never sleeps this late.
We made plans last night for today.
We will spend the morning reading and the afternoon playing.
I think I might take her out on a girlfriend date to a tea room.
Then to the bookstore for a special treat. Or two.

Just now, I can hear the birds singing, and
feel the breeze coming through the open windows.
The house smells fresher, alive.
I can see trees starting to flower.
It's spring. It's spring and all is right with the world.

Beautiful thoughts. Relaxation leads to such a wonderful sense of clarity, doesn't it? Enjoy your day.

Your words sing also from my heart. Spring time gives me such hope for days of sunshine. Did you visit the tea room? I do hope so.

your buttery soft words
so full of warm sunshine
and those beautiful frocks
on the dancers
make me daffodil glad:)

It all sounds magical, my dear! I hope your special date with Sloane was memorable and delightful. What could be better than tea and a book (or two)! Hope the rest of your break is as wonderful. xo – g

I've had one heck of a time springing forward -- seems I never want to get out of bed! Love the graphic you chose for this! How lovely to have a break right when you need it most!
