I just snapped these pics 30 seconds ago because a) I must share the warmth of this yummy morning light and b) anything to distract/delay me from work I MUST do this morning because hello– I have procrastinated as long as humanly possible.
I want to be good, I really do– I want to send out the 847 emails I must send. I want to finish the database and clean my closet and write letters and make phone calls, walk the dogs, meditate, make a healthy breakfast and do everything that needs doing yesterday that I put off until today– but oh man, all I want to do in this moment is lay in the sun.
So instead, I moved my “office” into this front room where the sun can shower down around my shoulders and I will try not to be distracted by it.
Part of this savoring is that yesterday Christine and I (plus Amy and little Vijay) drove up to Portland, ME to visit with the amazing Amanda and Annabel and it was pouring rain. Pouring rain. Lucky I wasn’t behind the wheel or we would never have gotten there (read: am an octogenarian when it comes to driving in bad weather). Turns out Michigan produces good (young!) drivers as Christine just barrelled through.
But it was a gray, rainy day from start to finish so this morning’s light feels all the more soothing– though I must say– hanging with the soule girls at Arabica and Duckfat— chewing the fat and talking creative projects (as well as consuming milkshakes and belgian fries–omg!) had its own cozy sparkling mojo to be sure.
But now– I am here. It is WEDNESDAY– oh lord– we are talking the middle of the week and I need to nail my butt to the chair and get some work done stat.
I’m thinking I might need to move my computer back into the real office– I mean, is it even possible to work when the lure of the sun to the couch is this strong?
