Small Pleasures

I came outside a couple of hours ago. The cat was already in her usual spot on the ledge, where she can keep a watchful eye on things while the neighborhood sleeps.

I must talk about the weather because of the heatwave we've had for over the past month. The worst day was last Thursday when it was 108 degrees with a heat index of 115. Right now, I'm enjoying a pleasant 79 degrees. There is a slight breeze and a rain and thunder storm is due in about an hour and-a-half. Already, the sky is collecting clouds. The coming rain will be a celebration, a delight in small pleasures and a welcome purging of all that has gone awry.
