But when I woke, the sky was so amazing! Contrails here are beautiful:
Waking up early is such a different way of life. I spend what seemed like a long time at my little desk, cleaning my pastels, as I am nearly ready for a try at them...
And I had organized a lot of photos for subjects, thought about some more ideas and am going to be looking at Route 66 stuff.
Went across the street to see my buddy Dennis. (HE is the guy who has never steered me wrong! He knows where everything is and isn't) and he suggested a couple of spots in the park where the pavement still exists.
I must stay, it made me sad. I can only imagine myself in a corvette (OF COURSE!) driving past the stunning view from this pile of torn up asphalt!
An afternoon of pretty windy weather, got me sitting on the patio in a break reading about my possible BIRTHDAY celebration tomorrow as a jaunt to Gallup and a photo spree of great neon signage and remnants of the highway.
As I sat, I realized I was upsetting my neighbors.
Two house finches (I am told... Or I think I was..) have built lovely nest above my doorway. They sat on various twigs and trees all around, waiting for me to vacate!
So I did.
Seems like Dad had a little look back as he went on a second run but mom's tail can be seen peeking out! I know these guys. They are an honest to gosh couple. They work as a team, looking for food, and they greet me with a loud WHOOOOSH when I go outside. I can find them looking from the tops of the trees the whole time I am out. They are pretty inspiring.
He is happy to see me indoors.
