Today has been magical since the moment I woke up and realized I was tucked into a down comforter, not simply lying on top of the sheets feeling sticky under layers of sweat.
Upon rubbing the sleepies out of my eyes, I noticed it was going to take more than two steps to reach the other end of my room. Success.
Oatmeal or toast? I pondered my usual options…until I opened the fridge and was greeted by a breath of chilled air. And it did not smell like overheated plastic. Fresh cut berries and an array of clean foods brought a smile to my face.
I even felt good about the glass into which I poured my water. I was sure that there were no mice in those cabinets the night before and I didn’t have to wonder if the chips were open because they provided a late night snack for me, or if they were a rodent’s dinner.
When I stepped outside, I gazed out on a canopy of trees, instead of dust, dumpsters, and construction workers. I felt the air and decided it was hot for a second, but was delighted to discover I wasn’t dripping sweat from any part of my body after walking from my car to the front of the store.
I lied out at a pool surrounded by grass and felt no hesitation in dunking my head under, allowing the water to fill in my nostrils and brush by my lips without wishing I could reach for some Listerine.
And now, I blog from a leather chair and am amazed by the central air conditioning, ready to throw a sweatshirt on if it gets any cooler in the room.
This is going to be a good week.
