Saturday Snapshot - Mellow

I see morning light, easing in through the vertical blinds.

I hear the quiet.  No one home but my eight year old son and I.  He is sleeping.  The refrigerator is humming softly behind  me.  I have not yet chosen music for my mood.  At 8 am, do I even have a mood? 

I smell lavender scented dish soap in a sink full of warm bubbly water, waiting for me to get busy. I taste the warmth of morning coffee, brewed as the winter sun rose, pale and silvery, on the eastern edge of town. 

I feel mellow as I ease into this day.

Your words are so lovely and peaceful Aisling x

Thank you all! Calm is good! I think that happens because I tend to find time to write when it is quiet. If I were writing in the midst of my one of my busy days, I would probably make you all nervous or frazzled. lol! Thank you for letting me know that my words brought you peace. :)
