Corners of my home...

...After adding a little Torani Hazelnut syrup to my morning beverage (ie. coffee) and watching the shadows dance around the kitchen...I felt a little inspired to sit and write (plus, I have a smidgen of extra time before I launch myself into the world again...as it seems to have been a morning of unlimited time)

I haven't posted a corner in a while, but with the subtle changing of the light lately in my world...and waking up to cheery birdsong, I realize that the seasons are indeed once again slowly changing, winding up to summer here in the Northland. I have especially been noticing it because the feeling of being hemmed in here has been overwhelming. I have been wanting to get in a car, with the windows down and music up, and drive.

Drive away.

I suppose it could be misconstrued as some sort of escapism from my life, but really, it's something that overtakes me. I have memories of driving in the soft heat, with playful breezes

Laughing outloud
Singing outloud

(mostly up Mingus on the way to Jerome...where you have to drive a little slowly because of all the curves) where I get the urge to spread my wings...and try to touch both the road, and the clouds. We have the most beautiful clouds here...

Little fluffy ones
(as the song by The Orb goes)


And drat the car that I've become wary of driving out of town. So, I was thinking of hitchhiking somewhere on Saturday. And really, the only reason I think better of it is because I need to clean and bake for the upcoming soiree that night instead.

Oh...and for some exciting news...my mother (and employee of sorts) is switching days off with me because working on Saturday will suit her better.

Are you kidding me?

I haven't had the weekends off in years (the perk of owning your own business) and have been successful in talking myself into the idea that I like to work on Saturdays because it's busier...yeah, well, it didn't take me long to talk myself into the idea that I can now take Saturdays off because most of my friends have the weekends off...and it will be so much fun to do things with them.

So, for what it's worth...I do indeed see lot's of road trips in my future...

Laughing outloud
Singing outloud
Spreading my wings...
and touching the clouds...
