The first thing I do every morning when I wake up is pull back my curtains and open the blinds to see what kind of day lies ahead. Lately, I’ve enjoyed watching the riot of color from the crab apple tree in my front yard. What a lovely way to start the day.
My daughter planted it when she lived here and despite the wind it has managed to survive and give me lots of pleasure. Birds usually nest high up in the tree and I get to watch them visit the feeder I have hanging in the branches.
Sitting at the computer, drinking my first cup of coffee and enjoying life. It’s the little things that count.
