the sun is coming up orange today. instead of gray. i can see ellsworth through the dining room window. he's been sitting upright on the top of the barbecue, facing east and watching the sun color the sky for 1/2 an hour. i'm up early today. hopefully back to my normal schedule. i hope today is the day i'm over this hateful cold. i've been able to do little but sleep for 3 days. every time i thought i could get a little something done, this cold would slam me back again. but this morning looks promising. i'll take it slow. tidy the kitchen and walk edgar. and greet the day.
