This afternoon the mockingbird who visits my back yard was trying to cheer me up for quite a while. I still haven't gotten a good look at it as it is always hidden in the bush that grows along the back fence. I enjoy listening to it, but it's got the noise of the freeway almost drowning it out. I still can't get used to the racket here. Now that it's close to midnight the traffic has thinned out enough that the noise is only intermittent, but it's still annoying. And there aren't any night birds to take advantage of the relative quiet.
I'm pretty sure there's stuff I have to do tomorrow but at the moment I can't remember what it is. If I wake up as late as I did today it might not get done anyway.
End of February tomorrow. Still no cats.
