Finally, The Sun


In response to The Daily Post's writing prompt: "Warmth." It has been a very long month of rainy, raw days this December.  The sun could not feel better!  Our cat, Missy, loves sleeping on this chest next to the window and the heater.  She won't even let the laundry basket get in her way!
