What's on my mind....
|Generally I love Saturdays anyway, as they are the first of my two days off in the week during the school year. But today is an exceptional Saturday. I'm reminded of that Mr. Rogers' song that starts out, "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!" Even though I really couldn't stand Mr. Rogers, today his theme song certainly fits. I think this is the prettiest and nicest day we've had in 2006 so far here in northern Georgia.
Last weekend was the first weekend, in some time now, that that it didn't rain. That was a nice change of pace, although rainy days, when I don't have anywhere specific I have to go, are all right with me, too. This weekend though, not only is the sun shining, but it's so warm that I have the doors and windows open and the ceiling fans going to push the fresh, pine-scented air through the house. People are out working in their yards. A couple of my neighbors have the motorcycles out, getting them ready for the upcoming trips they take to the Georgia mountains. My next door neighbor is pulling his boat back into the garage. I have been writing most of the day.
It is absolutely wonderful, one of those days when I really feel priviledged to be alive and healthy enough to enjoy it.
