A Bite of Delight

The weather report said: 5:00 a.m. stormy; 6:00 a.m. stormy; 7:00 a.m. stormy. As I closed my eyes and settled in for the night, I gave a satisfied sigh knowing I would not have to be up and out the door for my walk.

With that knowledge, I ended up sleeping forty-five minutes beyond my usual time. Imagine my surprise to see the daylight, but no precipitation. As I sipped my iced coffee, I listened to the weatherman assure me rain was coming.

Just as I thinking about changing into my walking clothes, I got an offer I couldn’t refuse. Instead of walking clothes, I quickly pulled on shorts and a shirt and joined my husband in the car. We were headed to a spot downtown hoping to score an almond croissant.

A few raindrops speckled the windshield, so I grabbed the umbrella as I headed into the European Café. Ah-ha! There were four almond croissants on the counter. I claimed half of them and added two quiches (for lunch) to my order. No need to open the umbrella as I met up with my husband.

Clouds were gathering, but I thought perhaps I should walk before consuming this

Quickly I put on my walking clothes. My steps might have been a little quicker knowing the treat that waited for me. Looking ahead I saw

this threatening cloud. It looked like I might get wet, but I continued on. So glad I did because I got a glimpse of delight

waiting for a birthday girl.

The threatening cloud evaporated by the time I returned home. I cooled down, then savored every bite of the almond croissant. As I glanced out the window, I noticed the patio was wet. There was just enough rain to make everything damp. That was the extent of our “stormy” morning.

I hope there’s another bite of delight in my future.

Don’t you have a story to share?

    YUM!!! What a nice treat….story for us and pastry for you. The entire routine of how you acquired your croissant seemed very well planned……almost as if…..it wasn’t the first time. What a good example for me…..you walked before savoring your treat. That takes will power!

  2. I love the way you used the word, “scored” in this piece. I felt like I was in line next to you cheering when you got to the counter. I hope there is another bite of delight in your future too.

  3. Wow! Your post reminded me of a walk and the pics I took one evening as an imminent storm approached. Funny how yours fizzled out. Love seeing the pic of your delightful bites! Happy Thursday.
