Hello sunshine

Hello sunshine! My bedroom has blackout curtains. More days than not, when I open the curtains I am not wowed by the difference. It’s often cloudy or dark in the mornings in Minnesota. But some mornings…wow. Today was one of those days. We hit the jackpot. Full, gorgeous, warm sunny sun. I like to say I’m solar-powered. I’m working on appreciating all kinds of days, but the truth is sunny days are my best days — full of energy and good humor. (Apparently my solar-powered cat agrees!)
