It is a Thursday afternoon and I am sitting in my home office, looking out the window, at the surrounding hills; they are starting to turn from green to gold. I am also watching a Blue Jay fly in and out of the California Poppies that are covering the side garden. He is flying back and forth, from the garden to the vineyard. I hope that he is eating a lot of bugs. I have the north facing window open, which is allowing a nice gentle breeze into the room.
I ran some errands this morning, around our town, I had lunch with my wife at her place of employment and then I retreated back to my home office, where I proceeded to work for the two companies that currently pay me. I had two different lap-tops open on my desk and was going back and forth between them. It was a very productive day. One that I enjoyed very much.
It is Spring and I live in Northern California, out in the country, but not too far from the city.
Yep, I am grateful!
