What a Beautiful Day this Promises to Be!
The sun is shining brightly, the sky is blue and clear, there is no wind, and the birds are singing! It is difficult to imagine this day is so wonderfully restorative when considering loathsome the weather has been of late, and this difficulty is compounded by the forecasts that currently call for rainstorms for the next four days! I shall enjoy this beautiful day while it lasts, and tomorrow I shall recall it with great fondness, as I huddle indoors and watch torrents of rain fall outside!
