I heard this weird thrumming sound, hrmmmm, hrmmmm, hrmmmm, but very deep. It woke me up; I looked at my phone, 3:45. What was that sound? I walked around the house, then out on the deck. It was some medium-sized cargo ship thrumming its way up Puget Sound. The thing definitely sounded like it was out of whack.
Out comes the kindle with its little glow light. Check cellphone, 4:25. The birds are chirping; light is creeping around the blinds. Off goes my kindle, I lay down trying to go back to sleep. I check my cell phone again, 4:55. Oh what the heck, it is just too light to go back to sleep now.
I finally get up, turn on the computer, put some tea in the microwave, sorry, I was too lazy to brew a pot of loose tea, look out the window to see two cruise ships heading back from Alaska. I bake a batch of scones for breakfast.
Sunrise is now officially 5:18, but let me tell you, it is light waaaayyyyy before 5:18. The photo above was taken at 5:15. The birds were singing at 4:25. The light is very different up here from Virginia, I am naively thinking of Sweden. Nope, not even close, we are on the same latitude as northern France, Bern Switzerland.
Today, we have the sun sparkling over the Puget Sound, no marine layer this morning.
I have cut out six coats. Now it is time to get pinning and sewing. I foresee the need of coffee this afternoon.
