The view of the sky from our front patio this morning.
I'm out back again, having more of my yummy Lao coffee. There is a scrub jay sitting on the fence making noise, and one of the cats is sitting at the door making noise at the bird. A big fat black bee is buzzing around the bean bushes, and a couple of hummingbirds are chasing each other around the yard and chattering at each other. Another one is having some water at the fountain that is bubbling placidly.
I had another cat visitor the other day. Gemma still comes around and says hi, but this was a little black cat with white paws and a white chin and chest. I have since learned his name is Dennis. He was about the friendliest little cat I have ever met. He climbed up in my lap and started purring almost immediately. Chock, standing at the window and looking out, wasn't pleased.
I took some pictures and posted them in our neighborhood site. I got a bunch of responses. He lives down the street and is a wanderer. A bunch of people want to adopt him, but he still has someone caring for him, so I let it be. He wandered back home, and I haven't seen him since.
I have started taking melatonin before bed some nights. I generally sleep just fine, but I like the interesting dreams I get when I take it. Last night I dreamed about all sorts of people from my past, including a boss who kind of screwed me over once. In the dream, she had lost her high-powered VP job, hadn't found a new job, and had no prospects. I started laughing.
Before sleeping and dreaming, I finished the last book I started on my trip. It was a Stephen King book called The Outsider. It started out as a murder mystery, and then kind of went in a different direction. Ended up being really good. Now I have to find something else to read, as that was the last of the "stack" of books I had. Time for a new stack.
One of the two pictures I took the other day on my drive to nowhere. I need to find a US distributer who sells this coffee. It is so good!
