I thought I’d write a little about some things in my everyday life here in Georgetown that I enjoy. I make a fuss about living in this tiny little place, but I will admit that it has grown on me. Sure, we still don’t have a bookstore, the Sonic and Starbucks close at 11, and the two big places to shop are Target and Wal-mart, but we did just get some more stores, including a Gamestop, Claire’s, Cold-Stone Creamery, Old Navy, Linens N Things, and Pier 1. And of course there’s some other things I enjoy about little ol’ Georgetown.
I enjoy waking up at 6:30 on MWF and opening my windows to the dark horizon, then slowly watching a blazing purple-red skyline form, as the first few sunbeams reach around the earth. I enjoy eating my cereal on the back porch and watching the sun rise and the day grow brighter, enjoying all the different stages of morning. I enjoy hearing the birds wake up around me as I sit on the back porch. I enjoy looking out my window and having a wonderful view into the small valley we live on the side of, over all the tops of the houses to the other side. It’s over that far side of the valley that the sun rises every morning. I enjoy pausing every now and then when the wind’s just right, and hearing the church bells from the church on the far side of the valley. I enjoy watching hawks circle the empty lot a house over. I enjoy riding my bike down the hill from school on sunny, cool days. I enjoy laying on my bed and watching the rain pour down on the neighborhood from my perch. I enjoy looking out my window in the morning and seeing a thin layer of fog suspended over the valley, with only roofs poking out. I enjoy knowing I have little amphibian friends that will come back in the spring. I enjoy looking up at night and seeing a sky full of stars.
