I always wake up on Summer Mondays feeling like I should have planned to take a vacation day. Not that vacation Mondays were free candy, but I love the idea of it. I woke up last Monday to a downpour. Resisting the urge to crawl back in bed was powerful. Today, the weather is glorious. 

I think Jaco was hopeful that I panned ahead and was home today. He was ready for his walk at 6:30. I was up and moving, yet not decidedly awake. He was so insistent, he gave me no choice. 

Amazing how a short walk can be so good for the soul. I walk, I savor. I capture. I think I’ll keep this with me all day.
