07:30, 54F, overcast. rain!! and little gusts of wind that open and close the doors in the house. let pup out. let pup in. hope she did her business. roosters crowing. no one at back door. muffin for breakfast. thinking scrambled eggs. later, maybe.
14:40, 59F, overcast. slight drizzle. chilly north wind. an inclement day.
15:30, 61F, starting to clear up. got 2 eggs. deer standing on hind legs in donkey woodlot, reaching for new leaves. pup and guardian playing on edge of cactus field. found enough dry wood for a fire.
20:30, 53F, misty. waxing clouded gibbous moon - no stars. woodsmoke. guardian barking. sheep asleep.
on chilly, damp evenings like this, I remember my dad reading in front of the fireplace and telling us, "wash up and go to bed." it was always cold upstairs so it was good to snuggle beneath the covers and drift off to sleep listening to the wind and the rain and, if the window was cracked, the surf. good night.

I tell you. dogs makes your life good. but my dogs are too big to sleep on the bed so, on cold nights, the cat keeps my feet warm.
thanks for sharing!

When the moist cold set in through the house here in Central florida my dad would tell the dogs "Get up on dat bed fo the kids" and our two terriers would sleep at the bottom of the bed with me and my brothers and we'd put our feet underneath their bellies. They'd stay there till the first one of us got out of bed in the morning. Loved dem ol' dogs.
