I got up this morning and felt absolutely wonderful despite being a few hours short of my usual sleep time. I couldn't figure out why until I realized my room was flooded with warm sunlight the likes of which I've only seen a couple other times in the last many rainy weeks.
I walked over to Duncan's crate, let him out, and we said our usual good mornings. We walked out of the bedroom into the living room and found it flooded with morning sunlight. I remembered why I picked an east-facing apartment. I had forgotten how light and sunny it can be in there!
Eager to enjoy the light Duncan and I stepped out onto the balcony to find the sun, blue sky, and a nice cool breeze. We sat for a while together enjoying the sun on our faces.
