I started out with a morning run- which quickly turned to a U-turn back to my house. I grabbed my walking pal Samuel (our Golden) and we strolled. (Unlike the strut that John Travolta is famously known for) We strolled along the trail- following the sun beam- it was like having natures version of a GPS. But I wanted no GPS this warm and cheery morning. The mild breeze that flowed was making Samuel’s choice of which scent to follow…almost impossible. I love watching Samuel as he walks. It’s like he’s in the show ring- tail flagging- head up- chest out. He’s such a handsome dog- and how unfair that Samuel should have highlights in his golden coat that I must pay for! Which reminds me – we both need grooming appointments.
As Samuel gets caught up in the scent of his hunt- I’m caught up in a kaleidoscope of thoughts.
I take notice to buds on the trees that line the road. I actually noticed for the first time, there are more plum-colored front doors (like my own) in a section of homes I’ve passed so many times before. (obviously the same builder)
I find words like fresh, greens, bright, iced tea, sand, and Kalamazoo floating around in my mind. I have no idea why Kalamazoo….let’s blame the sun that I haven’t seen in months!
So, maybe today the weather was exceptionally pleasant. Who am I kidding….it was fabulous!! And if tomorrow brings rain – there will be another tomorrow in Kalamazoo!
These are the moments…those simple little moments…that become precious moments in my life. I love days like this. And yes, I spent this sunny morning with my four-legged child, as my two-legged darling stayed busy in school. Hopefully she aced the geometry test!
I look forward to this new season-Spring. It’s been a few days since I looked at Facebook, but today I took a peek- and my sister posted 7 more days!!! Without seeing the word Spring in her post….I’m going to take a leap and say….she’s making the countdown until Spring Equinox is officially here.
Enjoy your Kalamazoo! No matter where it takes you!
