We are told not to discuss politics or religion. It’s better to talk about the weather. So today that’s exactly what I’m going to discuss. I absolutely have been enjoying the weather so much. It’s been in the mid 60’s to 70 for the past week. We have turned off the AC/heat and just opened the windows and had on the ceiling fans. Oh what wonderful blissful sleep.
What does this time of year do for you? I love sitting watching the sunsets in the evenings with a gentle breeze. The dogs in the yard wandering around exploring and chasing rabbits and squirrels. It’s a slower, more peaceful time. It’s great for relaxation after a day at the office. It helps me keep things focused. In fact this morning I woke up early to let my little dog out, and there were 4 doe in my back yard. They just moved closer together slowly and looked at me. What a treat.
I absolutely love examining the different colors of the sunset and the various cloud formations. Admittedly, I have taken up fine art painting a few years ago so I examine things differently than I used to. I look for shadow, layering, value system changes, focal points such as the sunshine peeking through a hole in the clouds. I could go on and on. The point is it’s where I go for my happy place.
Do you have a happy place? A place of serenity? Is there a way you unwind from the day? I would rather sit and watch the sunset and feel the breeze than even having a long soaking bath. It just takes me away to a place that I can commune with my mind and with God. I am reminded that we really do have a beautiful state and it’s a great place to live.
So last night I enjoyed the cool breeze again with the fans on. Today and tomorrow it is supposed to warm up again and possibly into the 90’s before the weekend. This will be gone for a while or perhaps for the rest of the summer and it will be fall before I have these kind of days again. Cherish the now. Don’t forget to slow down and take in the day. Breathe and even have a song on your lips. I love the weather now.
