The furry gang woke me up at 4 am. I must have been ready to wake up otherwise I would not have woken up so easily. At 4.30 am I heard an owl outside the bedroom window, but since the city management found it necessary to remove the street lamp that was in the yard next door, it was too dark to see anything. But it sounded very clear and close, I wonder if it was sitting on the fence. I could not really get back to sleep so I just played with the cats that were hanging out on my bed until it was time to get up.
I washed and hung two loads of laundry and spent an hour in glorious sunshine cleaning up some stuff in the garden. The grackles are back and I heard a lot of other birds. It does feel a lot like Spring, but colder weather is forecast for midweek. I hope it will not get too bad. I also wish it would take a break from raining for a bit, the garden is so muddy, I was slipping and sliding all over the place and my socks were soaked, yuck.
The cats are a little put out because I left them alone for so long. Silly things could have looked out the bedroom window and watch me instead of looking out the front windows. Now they are all in the porch getting some sunshine and I am getting ready for some quality time with my sewing machine, I hope I'll have something to show tomorrow.
