Out my window

30 Jan

DPChallenge: Through the window. Go to the nearest window. Look out for a full minute. Write about what you saw. 

The dining room/my study window is to my right. When I pull back the blue and white checker curtain, the curtains I sewed by hand myself, I see our backyard. Our backyard is huge, well not huge like my dad’s since he’s got about 13 acres of back yard, but huge for a regular neighborhood kind of huge. There are a few oak trees, a cherry tree, a mimosa tree, and a pecan tree. The majority of our grass is crunchy and brown, except for along the area of  septic tank–we need to cut that part. I can see the dog pen in the neighbor’s yard behind us–his dog is spread out in the grass enjoying the sunshine. Wish I could spend my day lying about enjoying the sunshine.

I’ve finished most of my morning coffee, I’m running a bit behind this morning because I got side tracked while writing. It’s quiet here. I can hear the heater blowing, earlier I could hear the birds chirping, now all I hear is the rustle of the wind through the trees when I stand close to the window. Which is surprising, because since one of my next door neighbors got a big dog that roams their backyard all I usually ever hear is the dog barking, so it’s nice that this morning I can hear the birds, the rustle of the wind in the trees, and the quiet.

Today, like most days, I have a number of things to do and not enough time to get it all done. Like most of the people I know, I am busy only my “busy” isn’t the busy of a 9-5 job, or commuting to work, but the busy of someone who is a housewife who is trying to work from home most days, and trying to begin working outside of home soon; the busy of a mother whose children are grown but still need me; the busy of wife with a husband whose job keeps him from running any of his own errands; the busy of a woman who is in pain but still has things to do; or the busy of  someone who sometimes just needs to some “me” time.

I’ll have to get back to the “me” time later. Right now, I have to go run errands, but maybe I’ll take my camera and get a few shots of the beautiful weather we’re having today.  Hopefully, I’ll have enough time to pick up a cup of coffee while I’m out and actually be able to sit down and enjoy it. I think I’ll stop by the park on my way home. Take a few pictures, enjoy my cup of coffee, and have a little bit of “me” time. The view at the park is much prettier than the view from my window, though I do enjoy the view of our trees–the squirrels and birds that play in and around those trees makes me smile.
