A Slow Wakeup on a Monday Morning

The windows are open, the birds are chirping, and my cat is sleeping peacefully at the foot of the bed. Rather than rushing to get up and start the day I decided to take the slow approach. I know I need to get to work but I just want to take a couple of moments to enjoy the temperature and sounds of today. Right now it’s a beautiful 72 degrees outside my home, later today it will be a blistering 88, and I am not a big fan of hot weather.

The DC area often jumps right from winter to summer and I want to suckle out those few moments of spring-like 70 degree weather before making the long drive to work. Hmmmm, how many days until working becomes optional?
