Good Day, Reader! I was going to say “morning,” but it’s already 12:45 p.m., and no, I didn’t just get up, sheesh. And then you may be reading this at night, so it wouldn’t make sense, so back to the first part, Good Day!
I stepped out on my deck to get a breath of fresh air and look at my pretty pretty backyard and I heard the strangest animal sound coming from the trees.
I was looking all around to find what curious little critter could be making that noise and finally determined that it was actually the tree branches rubbing against each other as they swayed in the breeze. Then I felt a little dumb for a second, because I almost threw breadcrumbs out there for whatever it was making the cute little chattering sounds.
Instead I did a little Nell reenactment, from that Jody Foster movie of the same name and stretched my arms out overhead and did a little “tay in the wind.”
Maybe we should all do more tay in the wind, because it made me look up and see the prettiest Cleveland-Winter sky, all blue and white and bright today and that made me happy. When I wasn’t feeling a tich like a crazy person, that is. Acting & Crazy Person is really just a fine line definition.
So basically look up once is a while, is the point of this public service announcement. Because sometimes we get all hunkered down in what’s happening at eye-level, with all the screens at our fingertips, and we forget to look up and see the pretty around us.
On that note, I’m going to grab my sneakies and go for a walk along the towpath. But I will not be doing Nell while out in public because someone will lasso me and have me hospitalized. Or I’ll be discovered by a famous movie producer who is also out for a walk at the exact same time as me and I will be whisked away to Hollywood tonight.
I don’t have time for any of that, because I’m making caramel sauce out of condensed milk in my crockpot today. I have a sexy date this evening with myself and a little salted caramel something I will make later this afternoon.
We can have sexy caramel date night sauce together. There’s enough for sharing.
Unless it’s super-delicious. Then I can’t make any promises.
