Quiet days

My pink peony tree will be missed when we're gone
My day started earlier than normal today due to a malfunction in my alarm cat.  The sun has started to come up earlier, which whips her into a frenzy trying to herd all her humans up and at 'em.  There's tuna to be opened!  Shots to be had!  She is quite persistent on staying on schedule as she wants to be sure to get all those naps in.

Why she lets Left Brain sleep an hour or two longer than me, I'm not sure, but as soon as he moves or yawns she knows it's time to get him moving also.  I really believe she wants to get us up and out on our day so she can have the camper to herself for a nice long nap.

After my line dancing class I returned to the canned ham where we feasted on left over pumpkin spice pancakes from earlier this week topped off with fresh blueberries.  Yum.  Left Brain enjoys breakfast and I'm only good for cereal first thing in the morning, so we've fallen into a rhythm of having a late breakfast for our lunch. 

The wind has died down to a reasonable level again, and the air is wet and humid.  But it is warm and the sun is shining and we've nowhere to be and nothing to do...so all is well.

After following several different You Tube videos I finally completed two knit dish rags.  More skills to teach my grandkiddies when I return.

Well, I need to go sit outside in the breeze now and read for a while.  Our oldest granddaughter has us reading the Peter Pan series.  Not actually Peter Pan, but the back story to it.  It starts with Peter and the Star Catchers, which we have both finished.  Now we're on the second one.  Thank you Em- good choice!

Ta ta!
