Saturday morning

I decided if it was early enough for the birds it was early enough for me.

Slept pretty poorly last night. For a while I was lying here wondering what time it might possibly be. Then I noticed it was slightly lighter outside. Or was that just my imagination? Then I heard the first peewee sing its song. I decided to get up and greet the morning with the birds of the air.

There are probably 50000 cardinals in this area, but there are also phoebes, robins, tanangers, thrushes, vireos, and countless others I don't recognize. Oh, and I heard a barred owl while I was still in bed.

And I didn't metion the mosquito buzzing my ear.

Now a jetski just started on the lake.

I think I might close my eyes and try to get a little more sleep.

Painting free time

Seems like I haven't had any free time recently...  But the house is looking nice!  We spend our free time split between Ultimate and working on the house.  Here are a couple of pictures of the new paint job, mostly completed.  Still a work in progress.  The blue trim will go away now that we have the main painting mostly done.  It will be a darker brown and the front door will be red.  I'm sorry--I mean the trim will be Roycroft Brass and Roycroft Copper Red.  The main color is Roycroft Suede.
