This morning I woke up early and decided to get my walking out of the way since I had a busy day ahead of me. I find that when I am busy and put it off until "later" sometimes before I know it, it is "to late" and I'm too tired!! I'm off to a good start today since I already have my daily walk behind me. I can check that off of my "to-do list" for the day.
I must say, it was a beautiful morning walk! Full of sights, sounds, and smells. It was still semi-dark out when I left the house. You know how it looks just before the sun actually rises - a yellowish-light glowing across the sky. I had noticed the clouds in the sky and then looked down at the sidewalk. I have found that it is good to watch out for crooked, uneven, and broken sidwalks!! I just looked up when I noticed something flying overhead and heard the "honking" noise of geese. Wow! There were about 30 geese flying very low in their "V" formation! By the time I pulled my phone out of my pocket to take a picture, it was too late. They were gone. A couple blocks on down the way I saw another group of them but they were flying much higher than this first group. What a sight that was for starting my day!
I also love all of the lilac bushes and the flowering trees that are in bloom right now. Purple, pink and white. They are just beautiful and the fragrance is absolutely wonderful! These are scattered all over my "walking route" and most definately blessed me with not only the beautiful colors but the sweet smelling fragrance of God's special blend of perfume. Better than any perfume that AVON sells!!!! (Don't tell AVON I said that!!) LOL! The blossoms have been beautiful but I noticed they are falling quickly to the ground making way for nice green leaves - especially with the last few breezy days we have had. Under one particular tree it actually looked like snow covering the ground!!
Many houses were still dark but gradually by the end of my nice, peaceful, quiet walk, more and more houses lit up and more and more cars began making their way into the streets.
A new day was underway. Life and activity had surfaced and begun all around me. As I finished up my last block and walked up onto the porch, the sun had indeed risen and cast it's sunshiny rays of light down upon this place called earth - down upon "my world"! Now to go in and sit down to a nice hot cup of coffee and look at my "to-do-list" for the day.
