The air is crisp and cool. There's a slight breeze and the sun is shining through a clear, blue sky.
I slept well last night and awoke to the sound of birds and the tickling sound of my windchimes. The baby foxes appear to be gone, but I did see the father cross the yard yesterday morning.
There is some type of sparrow that has nested above the bay window in the dining room and the Robin is in the bush outside the kitchen window. And the hummingbirds have returned as well.
It's the start of a good day.
I've enjoyed a quiet cup of coffee before I head outside to work in the yard.
I'm looking forward to doing the yardwork. With the rain and heat wave earlier this week, the lawn desperately needs to be mowed. So I'll be heading out soon to do that AND the hand trimming because I will gaze upon the end result and be pleased.
I will put out solar lights and lawn ornaments and this will make me happy. I will prep the garden and flower beds in anticipation of planting those next weekend.
It's the start of what will be a good day.
Capturing the moment since you never know how long it will last...
