I rose early this morning, to Winston urging me to come and let him out. It can be a bit of a pain sometimes having a morning dog. Sometimes I think he enjoys the early mornings as much as I do. Yet after dealing with a sinus headache last night and taking ample sinus medication to alleviate it, I was not too keen to rise at my normal time. None the less, I answered his call and we ventured outdoors before the sun rose and enjoyed the sunrise together.
Although I thought that I was too tired and wished to stay in bed a bit longer, upon my return into the house, I commenced to make coffee, bake a batch of peach tarts and also some vanilla meringues. I started the wash and enjoyed a nice cup of coffee in the silence of my house. I guess Winston knew what he was doing when he woke me before the crack of dawn.
Our days have been terribly hot here in Oklahoma and it has been difficult to do any form of constructive work outdoors. My gardens are begging for the coolness of fall to come. I am hoping the sliver of hope that our weatherman is giving us for some form of relief to this heat wave will come to pass. There have been small showers here and there yet they seem to all dance around us never coming near enough to give us any of their relief. We will see what comes to pass as the week progresses and the weekend draws near.
I think I am feeling the callings of the coming fall and winter. A bit early I know yet I find myself longing for quiet cooler days and the reflective time that this time of the year seems to bring to us. It has been an extremely eventful summer and it seems that everyone has been going at full force. Soon the autumn will come and as we gather and prepare to draw ourselves indoors for the colder time of the year I welcome the slowness it will bring
