3:30 this morning I was awake and going over in my head all the things I wanted to do or get done today. The list got so long I started repeating myself. So I got up and got started. Now ten hours later I can say I have finished one-half my list. I can also report 217 books of poetry will fit on less than six feet of bookshelf. And based on windowsill vacuuming the box-elder bugs and the Japanese Beetles were not bad this fall. And homemade chili and corn bread make a delightful lunch. And the temperature outside of our home this morning at 4:00 was 35 degrees fahrenheit. And two cups of coffee before 5 does help with the motivation. And I have a lot of items still on the list. Time’s a wastin’.
