Even though California has a mild winter, I still miss the sun filled days I have taken for granted.
Oh, to be able to sit outside, sip coffee, tea, or another drink in the shade of a tree or parasol. And solve the world's problems as hours go by. Maybe strange to miss the shade, but I do!
Or spend a quiet day at the waterside. Having your fishing poles out. Lunch in the cooler (icebox). Looking at the boats coming by. Feeling a light breeze in your hair.
Or have a walk in a garden heavy with the fragrance of with roses. Admiring the statues.
Or musing about the jagged shadows of palm trees on a sun drenched wall. For me this scene just screams "Paint me, paint me." Small gifts each day, taken for granted.
What do you take for granted?
