SOLSC 19/31 2012 Time

      Before the sun makes its debut, the wind whips the curtains across my bed. I smell it before I hear it. I rise and close the windows in preparation for its early morning onslaught.
     The dogs greet me with their usual eager whine and thumping of three happy tails in unison. “Not yet guys, you’ll have to wait awhile.” They reluctantly settle back into their spots.
      I tip toe into daughter’s room and quickly shut hers hoping not to be waylaid by one of the many piles on her teenage floor. Her head at the foot- she never stirs. I hesitate and glance quietly at her sweet sleeping face, unaware of my visit or the early storm.  
      Just as the last window drops; so does the downpour. It looks to be an inside first day of spring break. I wonder what the rest of the week will bring. But for now I will enjoy my early morning and time with the quiet of the rain.

    1. Thank you Tammy, your comments always make me smile. Have a great day.

  2. I love the way you paused to enjoy the sleeping face. This is one of my favorite things to do also!

  3. What a great approach to the first day of break and you are stuck inside. I hope it didn't rain all day. Poor puppies having to wait. Great descriptions!

  4. Ahh, I can't wait until those days of break--indoors or out!

  5. Wonderful description - I could smell the rain! Hope that it didn't last all day- and that it won't last all week! Happy Spring Break.
