Good morning or whatever part of the day is for you. Today is Sunday, June 14, 2015. The temperature is 64.3°F and the humidity is 86% at 5:00 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 0 mph with gusts of 1.6 mph. It was overcast and dry where I stuck my head out. And very quiet. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of 81° (“warmer than yesterday”) today.
The picture is of the progress painting the kitchen. It’s not done yet, but it’s getting there. The picture was taken at night. I should have taken it during the day.
The fairy tale (and the $20 entry fee) is off into the wide world. The winners will be announced in September—that’s assuming the story doesn’t get rejected outright and come bouncing back to me a whole lot sooner. I’ve got a handful of markets I can send it out to when it does.
Apparently, we’ve got an early morning visitor in the form of a skunk again. Mr. Siduri has noticed spots dug up in the front flower bed. The same morning that I smelled skunk and had to close the back door, he got another whiff of it hours later along the side of the house. With the drought, critters come by looking for water and digging up insects in people’s yards. We had another skunk making the rounds a couple of years ago. One of the neighbor’s kids who left for work at the crack of dawn saw it regularly, making its way down the block.
Off to write another day—
Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day brings you good things.
