The weather here has been fabulous the last week or so. I wake up to sunlight streaming in my east facing windows in the living room. No one enjoys it as much as Zoot. He melts into a puddle of goo till the sun moves around the south side of the house, out of his reach. Then he goes out in the yard in search of a sunbeam. Oh, to be a cat.
Afternoons, after Math, reading and housework are done, I make my way out to my "barn" studio to play. At this time of the year, the sun pours in through the south window late in the afternoon. The sun is much lower on the horizon now. I love the way it warms the room, turning everything to gold. With the doors thrown open and Zoot wandering in and out and the leaves floating gently down off the trees, it seems there's nowhere I'd rather be. Peace reigns in the early autumn light, no matter what else is going on in my life.
