I woke up earlier than usual today, before the sun was up, and it’s just now beginning to peek through the trees at 6:55 am. It’s 75° outside but it feels cooler than than. No breeze to speak of. Just still and quiet. When I stepped out to get this photo I startled a hawk who flew up from the top of the pine tree, calling loudly as he flew away.
I’ve got errands to run later and the doctor wants to take a look at my arm where something bit me. It’s not serious but I may need an injection to calm it down. I still need to pick up a non-stick 2 quart saucepan to use for making the homemade play dough. I’ll make one or two batches and see how it turns out and I may let Sarah and Rachel have a go at it when they come out to visit soon.
One chore I need to tackle soon is cleaning windows. It’s been too long and I’m tired of streaky windows and dirty screens. It’s easy to get most of the windows cleaned because all but three of them are double-hung windows and can be tilted inside for cleaning. The screens will be a chore and some of them need to have the mesh replaced. It’s been a long time since I did anything like that and I may need help this time around.
Brad is up and it’s time to make coffee and have some breakfast.
