I woke up late this morning and was suprised I had slept that long. I felt groggy and a little blue when I got up and started doing the regular morning jobs — making tea, turning on the news and weather reports, taking clothes out of the washing machine and hanging them up to dry.
At some point I looked out the window and realized how pretty the morning was. There was a light haze or brume over the vineyard, but the sun was coming up and it was going to be a bright day.
It is, too. Now it's time for me to get showered and dressed so that I can take a trip to the supermarket. That will cheer me up. Lettuce, milk, eggs, leeks, onions, vinegar... and whatever looks good.
I don't have a lot to say today. What am I doing this October? Learning how to start fires and clean out the wood-burning stove. Walt will soon be leaving to spend a couple of weeks in America, and Callie and I will need to know how to keep warm. (Of course I can always turn on the central heat...)
I started this blog four years ago, in October 2005. Gosh.
