I am sitting at the kitchen table looking out over the pond behind our house. My feet are cold against the ceramic tile floor. I think I'll have some hot tea to wash down the remnants of this morning's oatmeal. I hear the tiny chirps of the newly hatched baby birds tucked in the nest in the hanging back porch light. My Pops tells me they are House Finch. Pretty little birds that are tinted a salmon pink. My fat gray cat stretches even further over my notebook lazily trying to prevent me from writing any more. He yawns and blows his mildly pungent kitty breath in my face.
I take in the floral aroma of the Jasmine tea I just brewed.
It's sunny again today and the outdoors beckon me to finish planting my flower bed. I'm still a little sore from having worked in it the past two days. But, I know I'll end up there anyway.
