I woke at 5:45 wide awake this morning with a need to clean. Before I even left my bedroom I made the bed, put away clean laundry, set out the millions of unpaired socks ready to sort tonight, cleaned the bathroom...scrubbing bubbles and all! Then because it was still dark, I made myself a cup of cafe vienna, and played on the computer. It is very quiet this early on Sunday morning. I could feel rather than see the fog laying very soft on the tops of the fields around me. Birds began to wake up and I could hear Bull chewing something up outside. I walked out ready to yell at him and instead the morning sky took my breath away. I don't know what the temperature is outside but it is cool enough to feel cold. Down in the creek I could hear two owls talking each other to sleep, a dove shot past in an attempt to avoid hunters. And this sky greeted me. I could smell wood smoke and dry leaves, the smells of fall. Summer is gone.
