I Heard A Pinecone Fall!
I've written before about the joys of my outside shower, but this morning was another idyllic moment. My friends have commented that they can understand showering outside on lovely summer days, but that winter would be another thing! Well, this morning it was 45 degrees, with both rain and strong winds and it was quite wonderful. I was out in my hot shower surrounded by rain, watching the majestic fir trees swaying when I heard a pinecone fall! I'm not sure I've ever heard that before--I am definitely not an outdoors type, so my pleasure in showering outside is amazing. It was just a miraculous moment! Then I saw several small birds flying upwind from branch to branch and that was wonderful as well. I did my yoga tree pose in the shower, standing still and tall and I hope very tree-like, but not swaying as the actual trees were doing as I figured that wouldn't be too safe! And I wiped pine needles off my shower gel before opening it. All in all, it was a fantastic way to start my day and my week.
