I agree with you, Liz, that 5:00 in the a.m. is a lovely time of day. and my remaining kitty reminds me that in the a.m. is kitty breakfast time. I was actually up around then today; it seems the only time I can spend tidying my Bless-this-mess house and getting in my quota of one-bushel-a-day of weeds and prunings. It's quiet, except for the birds.It's cool and nice. the auto sprinklers have run, and the garden glistens. The birds seem to think it's a bird shower or water park. I deliberatly have my bedroom on the east side so I can't oversleep (doesn't work in winter). My front yard is all wildflowers; grass is boring. and sneezy.

My friend Nancy can't get over what she calls my all-pink house. (No Nancy; the carpet is ash rose; the paint job is mauve ...)

One of my favorite SF writers once said, "It's foolish to give up what you loved as a child." Well, playing in the dirt and mud is right up there.

Has anybody else read a psychological thriller titles *Sophie?* Book discussion group, right over here... in this nook with trailing datura plants ... yes, they say if you inhale deeply enough, ...

Kat reopened the Tavern as a respite from the increasingly hostile political threads.
How lovely to relax with a congenial bunch who share one's interests!
