I'm not sure what I was thinking this morning. Getting the tree and other Christmas decorations down, packed and put away sounded so good and responsible. So did changing the bed linen, doing the laundry and cleaning house. Needless to say, it's not all done, and midnight approaches.
Admittedly, I didn't work the entire day. When it became apparent that the rain was going to stop, I took a break for a walk with Tal. He discovered one day last week that someone had taken a bush hog and chain saw thorough the acreage beyond the house. We're now the proud owners of ATV paths through our woods. Exciting, huh? Plus, the stakes marking the corners of the property have been removed. We decided as we poked around to invite the surveyor to come out and help us reestablish the boundaries. Perhaps a "posted" sign or two are also in order as well.
The walk, despite evidence of the intrusion and thoughts of how much a new survey will cost (sigh), was a pleasure. I had the chance to try photographing water drops clinging to nandina berries by the front door and enjoyed the entrancing sight of fast-moving clouds across clearing skies.
It was a good interlude. Sleep in a few minutes will be too. I'll finish today's chores tomorrow.
