Good morning! I was awake early today, rescuing my laundry from the clothesline. The windy season has begun in La Grande, and we're expected to have 25-40 mph gusts today. It's at 28 mph right now, and has subsided some since I got up. I don't consider it really windy until the fireplace starts whistling. Anyway, the wind woke me up at 5:30, and I went out to bring in the laundry. It was exhilarating. The temp was 41˚ F, so not too cold, and the air felt wonderfully alive in the blustery cool dark.

Plus, I wasn't sleepy anymore so I just stayed up, and got to see the sun rise about an hour later. This was the view from my front door at 6:40 am.

What a treat.

Gorgeous picture!

And anyone who can say "41" and "not too cold" in the same sentence is not humane. Or at least not the same strain I am. Yeegads, I'd be in tears (under the blankets).
