Thank You

I worked from home today and got an early start before the rooster crowed. It's amazing how much you can get done when there are no distraction - well, I was distracted a little when I smelled the coffee brewing. We grind the coffee beans at night before we go to bed and it kicks on every morning at 5 a.m.
I slipped from the office and into the kitchen trying not to wake the spousal unit. She remains snippy until the sun comes up and the caffeine makes it's way through her system. I know this and I give her a wide berth at those times. She reminds me of our old Buick we had when I was a kid. It was really slow off the line when it was cold and early but once you got that baby moving, you better hold on because she would fly. I'm not convinced when she reads this, she will appreciate this analogy and that I was paying her a complement, because the old Buick was big and ugly. I loved the smell of the leather seats and it did have a great ride.....wait, I'm digging myself deeper and deeper....perhaps I've said too much.
Anyhow, I knocked off work this evening and went for a walk down behind the barn. The dogs were sitting on ready and when I opened the gate, it was off to the races. When we walk they experience pure joy and so do I. As we made our way down through the field a breeze came out of the west and autumn leaves fell like psychedelic snowflakes. A gentle rain began to fall and I looked up into the sky and said a silent THANK YOU.
