Saturday Morning


IMG_0009-LIt was one of those mornings where I woke up and just couldn’t get back to sleep.  There were too many thoughts going through my head and the old grey matetr just wouldn’t settle down.  I said the hell with it and got up after struggling with it for almost an hour.  The coffeemaker wasn’t due to go off until 7:00 AM, so I turned it on manually.  the smell of coffee brewing slowly wafted out from the kitchen.

I looked out the front window and shivered a bit.  Doggone it’s cold out there.  Yahoo said is was 36*F.  That makes it what?  About 2C?  It doesn’t matter.  It’s still cold.  I nudged the thermostat so the furnace would turn on.  I’ll worry about the gas bill later.  Heat and comfort takes center stage for now.  I’m sure I’ll have a frown when the gas bill comes in the mail.

The sun rose with some spectacular colour and then it went to grey skies out there.  I can hear some duck hunters popping away with their shotguns off in the distance as I sit here sipping on another cup of coffee.  I’ve made a mental list of some things that need done this weekend.  Hopefully the weather will continue to cooperate.
