Sleeping in the sun

It's perfect blue sky weather here in Cleveland today. Not a cloud anywhere. Of course that means it's still a little chilly, especially near the lake, but it's one of the first signs that show the worst part of winter is over and clear nights with sounds of summer drifting into your bedroom at night are just around the corner.

This sun reminds me of many relaxed afternoons where I could drift off into a nap, sleeping in the sun, allowing my mind to wander free on anything I felt like thinking about with no pressure to get up. Then, as dusk starts to set in, I'd get something to eat and enjoy the breezes as I watch the kids in the cul de sac play some made up game, a beer in my hand. Later that evening I'd do some work on the computer or read.

Those are good times. I can't wait to make those simple good times happen again soon.

Nothing beats napping at dusk, my favorite time of day, with the windows open and a gentle spring breeze coming inside to tickle my feet.

Now THAT is sleeping in the sun...during winter, no less.

But I know what you mean. Days like today (and tomorrow and Sunday are shaping up to be even better) bring thoughts of opening windows for some much needed fresh air in the house, lazy evenings after work relaxing on the deck, or early mornings with a cup of hot coffee, waking to sunshine and birdsong (much better than a blaring alarm clock and total darkness), and weekends working in my garden.

Not to mention getting some major stress relief at CP.

I took a good long walk today. It felt amazing Today's sunshine-with-just-a-slight-chill-in-the-air could stay here all year round and I'd be in heaven.
