I am starting up with Five Minute Friday…kind of a new thing for me. Writing. So the deal is, you join up with all of the other Five Minute Friday people and write for five minutes straight. That’s it. There is a new prompt every week and you just look at it, and go. Will make me just stop and think about a surprise word…I kind of like that! What an interesting way to start a Friday. Of course I took out my camera, because that is just what I do. Today’s prompt is – here.
3:30 in the morning. Here it starts. Drip drip drip. It was supposed to start last night, but I never heard if it did.
I got up at 7 and looked outside. I am still amazed that we live here.
Everything is so green. So alive. And so wet!
Such a contrast to where we lived in AZ.
The sun is rising, coming through the trees. The cardinals and squirrels are out trying to find food. Reminds me that I need to buy more. That one female cardinal is still attacking our glass side door. Still don’t know what she wants, or if she is trying to protect herself from something.
I walked outside as the rain paused. My Old Navy flip flops are perfect here. Who cares if they get wet. The sound of the various birds is like music. We used to have a clock that Jeffy’s mom gave us, it had bird noises every hour. Different ones. I swear we hear all of those birds here. I can’t wait for her to visit, so that she can hear them too. She had the same clock.
I take my camera outside with me. It doesn’t get used as often as it should. I look around at how Spring is showing herself at our house. I had asked a friend when it starts to green up around here and she said that one day I will just look out and notice it. I think today is that day. I am sure it will be even more pronounced when my mom comes to visit in a couple weeks.
I walk around for a few minutes taking pictures of all that is around. Sometimes stopping and just wondering how it is possible that we ended up in such a place. I think I like the looks of it here…
