I had to drive to the airport at 6 AM today to put my beloved on a plane heading westward to beautiful (even though it's raining there) Portland, Oregon.
These old retired guys who go back because they love their work and, for some reason, just can't give up their road warrior lives.......just keep on ticking like the proverbial you-know-what.
I too would have loved to fly to Portland today.........I have a raincoat, Wellies and a trusty brolly.........and a dear blog friend Marilyn of Delights Of The Heart is there. We hope to meet one of these days, and I'm sure we will.
On the way back home I loved the sepia colors of the early hour. Although we dashed to the airport on the highway to save time, I felt most comfortable driving homeward on the back roads, enveloped in the almost neutral shades of the world just before the sun comes up. The waning gibbous moon hung in the western sky.........and here in North Carolina we are having yet another pleasant day where the leaves continue to fall on the warm breeze, birds sing non-stop, and squirrels nibble on acorns in an eating frenzy on my back deck.
Meanwhile, I'm busy doing things we all seem to be doing these rushed December days.............Portland must wait for me.....I have such a lot to do around here.
Have a wonderful day whatever you're up to!
