I'm not sure what triggered such a positive approach to today but I'm grateful for it. Willie (my faithful black cat) and I were rudely awakened this morning by a monster clap of thunder right outside our bedroom window!?! A quick look at the local weather radar made it clear that this was the leading edge of a huge thunderstorm that would last the rest of the morning.
It was obvious I'd get too wet and too dirty even doing some deadheading or starting the end of summer clean-up of the borders.
The morning glories tried to bloom but it's mid-afternoon now and today's blooms should have waited until tomorrow. I guess they just couldn't avoid their destiny?!? Today was their day to bloom!
Happily, I had the inspiration to change my plan to an activity that would lift my spirits and cross a few things off my never ending list -- I would dedicate this dreary day to finishing! Finishing something always gives my spirits a big lift!!
But first sourdough pancakes with fresh peaches and maple syrup to get the day off to a special start!
