Today was a perfect day to walk the cat. The weather for mid-February was not typical -- certainly NOT what I've come to expect here in central Indiana's cornfields. It's a sunglasses are mandatory type of day! Mid 50's. Slightly breezy. But, gloriously sunny. Yes, it's a perfect day to take your cat out on his leash for a walk!
|The view is better|
up on the fence rail!
Life is full of surprises, isn't it? And, many of those surprises are pleasant when we are looking for them. Who knew that the little yellow kitty whose life we saved from abandonment would turn into such a cuddler? Who knew he'd grow up to be a cat who runs to the door for a walk upon seeing his leash being pulled from the drawer.
|There's no substitute for a nap in the sun!|
There have probably been way too many afternoon naps in the sun as it streamed in the window from the COLD outside. Both the cat & I have grown weary. We've looked for other ways to get our exercise in without braving the winter weather.
And... we might have rested just a little too much. But, the rest has brought strength.
How refreshing it was to take a quick walk along the patio & deck with the cat today... to no longer be cooped up inside awaiting warmth again. The Psalmist said to the Lord:
"You set the boundaries of the earth, and you made both summer and winter."
Even when I know that winter is not quite over, I am grateful for days & moments that remind me of the "summer" to come.
