Heaven on Earth

I live in this place, Heaven on Earth.   The sun comes up in the East with the promise of another wonderful day.  I see my horses out in the early pasture, enjoying every bite of green grass, hay no longer interests them.  The birds started their morning with joyful songs.  I am hopeful that the bluebirds continue their nest building in a box nearby, I eagerly watch their progress.

A cup of coffee in hand I venture out with the dogs in the wet dewy grass.  I am bare foot, to feel the cold wet grass and feel every sensation startling me awake.  I'm alive this spring morning in April.  Rejoice!  This is what I have been waiting for, Spring!    It is unusually mild this spring, the windows and doors are thrown open, spring is in the air and I enhale it's fragrances.

My flowers are so beautiful this morning, the tulips and baby iris are so pretty together among my stacked stones.  I see trees starting to leaf out and thank them for their shelter, I cannot wait to hang the hammock under those leaves and take an afternoon nap.

I must snap out of it, this little moment of blissfulness.  What am I thinking!  I must get the studio ready!  There will be thirty to fifty people coming today in a Coach Bus to visit my gourd studio!   Oh, my.  I have much to do before they arrive on this beautiful spring day.  I have meandered long enough with my coffee in hand!  I don't want to leave my wonderful morning solitude.......   And yet, I love that I will have visitors coming to my place, Heaven on Earth.
