I woke to the sun shining through my window.
The first time I've seen it in days.
I dared to wear my favorite skirt in the cold mountain air.
I scraped last night's rains off my frozen windshield.
I had to leave earlier than usual.
I dropped my car off at the shop to get my tires changed.
I walked to the nearest coffee shop for a pot of tea.
I had time to kill.
I smelled the varieties before making my choice.
I chatted with the little boy at the table next to me.
He picked pecans out of his granola and offered them to me.
Finally, I had to say goodbye.
But was reminded what joys can come in even the smallest change of routine.
