edgar's not loving the heat. he had to stay inside all day yesterday. but this morning the heaviness in the air is gone (at least at 6 a.m.) and we had a great little walk to the park. ellsworth came with us. following a few paces behind and then dashing ahead to lead the way. while edgar was exploring in the park, ellsworth politely waited in the bushes and re-emerged as we were heading home and walked around the block with us.
when we had returned home and i was opening the blinds in the living room, the cord popped and now they are completely broken...hanging all askew like in an abandoned house. i've never loved these blinds, and always planned to make curtains. but now i'm being forced to. i've always had a specific idea of what i wanted to do, using my favorite linen that i used to paint on. but, now i'll have to make another plan that i'll love just as much.
i'm struggling with a cold right now, feeling pretty run down, sore throat, chesty and head-achey. but i'll feel better as the day moves along, i'm sure. i'll take a bath and make some curtains and the day will get into full swing!
