Last night the sky was clear and the stars were breathtaking. It was hard to tear myself away from them and go inside. Right now I’m sitting on my brother-in-law’s deck. I’ve locked myself out of the house, but I have my book, my notebook, and my coffee, so I’m fine until DS returns. The weather is lovely. Sunny, breezy, cool. The house is tucked away in a lot surrounded by trees–I hear some construction work going on in the distance, but I have to really listen to hear it. For the most part there is no traffic, no voices, no sounds at all except birds, bugs, and wind in the tree branches.
