I'm up, feeling a little better today- although I won't lie, I'm still in my pj's. About to begin today's piece, I think it could be a good one. The sun is out and there are hundreds of birds in the yard- my neighbors dog is still barking by the way. I think the poor thing has barked every day for about 5 hours straight just out of fear. It's afraid of *everything*- squirrels, cats, people voices, butterflies and especially wind. Poor thing is as dumb as a rock, so I tolerate the constant woofing. At least it's on the opposite side of the house as my sun room, not nearly as distracting that way. Ok, I have my hot tea, my eyes are a little less bleary so I shall begin.
