What's wrong with this picture? It's 6:36 AM, and I'm on the keys! And, I'm already doing office work here at home, a full pot of best / percolated coffee has been brewed, the aquarium has been topped off, AND I've gotten some dishes done!
Morning breath. Really!
I was awoken at 4:55 (fully light outside*, btw) by mosquitoes. There's a hole in a screen somewhere. They came at me, one after another (they are attracted to the carbon dioxide we expel when we breathe), until I finally gave up at 5:40 and got up. Where's a mosquito netting bed canopy when you need one? (Growing up, we all slept under one . . . but I have a sneaky feeling that had more to do with all the cracks & crevices in that house rather than that the bugs were worse then.)
I've got friends stopping up this AM for a super quick visit (and they already called to say that they were on their way - insane morning people!!!), so I gotta go brush my teeth & get dressed, but I'll try to be back to post some pictures yet this morning.
*Civil twilight arrived at 4:32 AM this morning. That is defined as no "artificial illumination is required to carry on ordinary outdoor activities". We'll gain 11 minutes of light in the morning before the vernal equinox (when morning twilight arrives at 4:21 a.m.)!
P.S. Since I'm in the car so much now, I thought I'd add an ongoing Critter Sightings Tally. You'll find it in the sidebar (at the top, for now).
