Saturday Morning And Home Alone

It's a cold Saturday morning. Outside my window it is 20 degrees. The room I am in was 57 degrees when I arrived. With my little electric heater going it is now up to 61 degrees. I am home alone with my cat. My wife left earlier to run some errands. I was still in my dreams when she left and did not hear her leaving. My son is at work. Later today we will go pick up Chloe and have a family dinner that will include my mother in law. Till then I will enjoy my solitude. I love Saturday mornings. Usually I get some extra sleep. Reading the morning paper and sipping hot coffee is a simple joy that I do not have on a workday. It doesn't take much to make me happy. I am a man who enjoys simple things. Soon I will leave this cold room and go to a warmer spot. I will sit in my cozy chair and watch an Eric Clapton concert on DVD. On April 6th I will get to see Eric Clapton live in Columbus, Ohio. Once I am with all the family later today there will be no more alone time or rest. When my granddaughter, Chloe, arrives there will be lots of activity. I still get excited everytime I know she will be here but like most toddlers she is very curious and demands a watchful eye. She definitely has more energy than me. Still, I love to see her and when she leaves I am filled with a happy exhaustion.

I am a huge Eric Clapton fan. I saw him once before in the 70's. I wish I had seen him last year when the Cream did a reunion tour.
