Chapter 4, Page 27, Book 09

It is clear the future holds great opportunities. It also holds pitfalls. The trick will be to avoid the pitfalls, seize the opportunities, and get back home by six o'clock
Woody Allen


I made it back home safe and sound and am refreshed and renewed for another work week. It’s hard to believe that this is the last week of April and come Friday we’ll be welcoming a new month.

Once the weather gets nice it really seems as though time flies.

When I got home I headed to the front porch yesterday evening to scrub away some of the winter grime that definitely needed to go as porch sitting weather has finally come. That was about the sum of total of anything else done at my house yesterday. It was 87 degrees. This is what we usually have in July and August here. Not April for sure.

The weekend was wonderfully warm and sunny. I was not prepared for it being so hot though. I should have taken tank tops and shorts with me. I did have some capris and short sleeve shirts and that is what I wore. Now I have what is commonly called a farmers tan. You can see the line where my shirt sleeves ended. I love to soak up the sun and had to spend part of the time in the shade as I was too warm. I can’t even believe I said that…I was just freezing a couple of days ago.

I find it difficult to go back to work this morning. I would rather be sitting there in my chair rocking away and listening to the birds singing as the sun comes up over the hill.

Hope your Monday is a great one and you find lots of blessings coming your way.

Good morning, Pam. I wish you could still be sitting there in the sun, too. It's sort of hard to read your entry cause I'm too busy looking at your pictures. The warm temps are so nice here but the wind is nonstop as usual this time of year. Have a good day :)
