I like to take advantage of the beautiful Fall weather here in Florida when I can. Therefore, a few days ago when the forecast called for a cool and dry week-end, I was elated. You see, it doesn’t take much for me to be happy. Moreover, living here in So. Florida, U.S.A, you take the cool weather as you can as majority of the year is quite warm and humid.
As a result, I planned on having my breakfast/brunch on the back patio of my dwelling; a picnic of sort. This is where I can seize a little serenity and get in touch with nature. I love to behold the beautiful and carefree ducks and ducklings paddle along the man-made waterway. Early in the morn, it’s quite lovely and heart-warming to hear only the sweet sounds of the water and the music from the trees.
So, I was quite disappointed because the last couple of days, So. Florida has been flirting with the eighties in temperatures. Moreover, the humidity has been in the high percentage. Even for Florida, these weather conditions are a bit unseasonable. Anyway, I didn’t dwell too much on it. I had to find a way to enjoy the morn.
Lo and behold I came up with a plan. You see, sometimes, one has to improvise. Instead of a picnic on my back patio, I decided to bring it within. I grabbed me a comfy throw and spread it across my living room rug. I placed my thermostat on a comfortable cool 70 degree.
Then, I proceeded to make yours truly an omelet along with bite size pieces of left-over ham. Yes, the one I did with rum/brandy glaze. I served my omelet with rye toast along with fresh cranberry spread. I had some fresh/sweet strawberries I fetched from the store the other day. I added a few raspberries and orange wedges. Still had a little hot chocolate, so I decided to rock it as well.
Guys, I perched on the carpet and listened to some inspirational messages from the ‘tube’; after all, it’s Sunday. Just as the preacher/speaker said, I’ve nothing to worry about because the Good Lord takes care of us all. Now, all I needed to do was to make note in my journal and grabbed me a little shut-eye in the aftermath.
