97 degrees of Solitude.

It officially reached 97 degrees today...not long until we are in the 100's. Since I spent most of the day working on stuff inside, the air conditioner was making me freeze, so by 5 pm I was dying to be outside. Brooks and I went out and sat in the sun, ate cheese crackers {well Brooks didn't participate in that part}, and watched the birds jump from branch to branch. It was one of those quiet moments that made me feel so happy, and I realized that I need to enlist more moments of solitude in my life. Quieting your mind and listening to what is rambling around in there can be so calming and healing. Life is so precious and seems to go so fast...don't forget to enjoy the simpleness of the every day.
