06:10, 63F, overcast and dripping, calm. got 0.7" rain last night! both roosters crowing. quiet otherwise. yellow dogs under house.
09:05, medium-high tide at CK. low 70's, slight breeze. ducks still around, mostly scaups. actually found a sunday paper at the downtown jiffy store! not a lot of folks in town in the a.m. a flock of bluebirds appeared in a friends yard.
11:10, high tide leaving CK. turkey on the side of the road. and a fox squirrel. love those beautiful squirrels. they are rare. got 4 eggs.
17:40, 73F. slight breeze, sunny. supposed to get into the 40's tonight? hmmm.. is it possible that I might be able to build a fire in the fireplace and use up the last of the wood in front and not have to tote it back to the barn?? woot!
20:30, 63F, calm. chores done. went out to the sheep pasture and watched venus and, way below, near the horizon, the waxing very thin crescent moon with jupiter just below. watched them emerge from the WNW sky as the sky got darker. fine!
