Dawn had already broken as I padded down the long, narrow staircase to the first floor of our little homestead. Reluctant to climb out of bed, I had fallen asleep long after half past late. I awakened sluggishly, yet, there they were, slipping in through the kitchen door, past the kitchen counter then down the hall, splashing radiant rays of sunshine around our home!
As I stepped too the last of the steps, the sun kissed the recessed bookcase and danced into the living room, landing on a candle and setting in aflame.
After eight days void of sunshine in a month of unending gray and gloomy skies, the sun was a most welcome visitor and seemed to lighten the heavy load of January in our cold and fickle northern climate.
In the kitchen, I happily discovered that the blooms on the Amaryllis I wrote about in the last post had opened up and greeted the sunshine streaming in.
Today’s sunshine was a ray of happiness here on the Cutoff. How i the weather in your neck of the woods?
