The clouds decided not to go away today. They scudded here and there about the sky, draping their cool shade across fields and woods, then passing on to reveal the sun again. There was a lovely flock of lavender sky sheep just after sunset. I'm hoping the clouds will play the same games with the moon for a few hours. As it was quite a bit cooler today (though still balmy), there is a slight chance that I won't have to run the noisy window fans all night. I've almost forgotten what late night silence is like during these recent hellish weeks.
A brief burst of energy came upon me this afternoon, and I vacuumed the entire house. All the little dust bunnies now sleep in the canister, awaiting their fate. My carpets are clean(ish), and I got the added bonus of not spending that time reading the Sunday paper. I will sneeze less tonight, and know less of what is going on in the world. Win/win.
