Outside My Window
By Marcella Meeks
Looking out my window today, all I could see was a gray dreary day. Literally speaking – it was a very gray day. It was cool and damp all day with a hint a of thunderstorm in the making. Usually, days like today make me sad or lazy but not this day. For some odd reason, I had a little too much energy and started doing a little spring cleaning project that went on for quite some time. Truthfully, it was a little too much caffeine!
As the day wore on, and the cleaning finally ended, I cooked supper, played and watched TV with my three grandsons ages seven, eleven and fourteen. By nine thirty, I took the boys home right after a thunderstorm had ended.
It is winter time here in the south. Late December the weather is always unpredictable. The weather could be thirty one day and seventy five the next.
It was about sixty degrees here today, with overcast skies. The sun peaked through the clouds for awhile but didn’t hang around for very long. I think it’s supposed to be in the lower seventies tomorrow, with chances of thunderstorms and showers. Another dreary day!
With weather like this, unpredictable and dreary, a tropical paradise sure sounds like a great idea. I’d like to be where the sun shines a lot and the temperature stays mild and warm every day of the year. Tropical rain showers would be okay as long as it stayed warm all the time. But since is it is wishful thinking on my part, I guess I will settle for the gray, wet, dreary December day like today. At least it inspired me to get some spring cleaning completed.
Soon Spring will be popping in at a moments notice and I will be out in the yard taking care of my flower beds and hanging blooming petunias every where. For just a little while I can enjoy a little southern paradise just looking out my window…
Till next time, have a warm, sunny, blessed day.
