Another weekend down at Raft Bayou. Working, mostly. Last night, after a shower and some Advil, I read and worked on some more moodling ("long inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering") :
I moodled last fall as a means of relaxing and had a great time just playing with the stitching while watching television. It was fun playing with the colors in the cabin last night and listening to Selected Shorts on NPR which featured two Eudora Welty stories.
Yesterday morning at 5:30, the sky was alight with stars: it looked like a planetarium's perfection. The Big and Little Dippers and Orion's Belt are the ones I always pick out, but the view was so spectacular that I may check out a book on constellations to be able to recognize more. Down in the country with no city light-glow, the night is very, very dark and on a clear early morning the sky was a-glitter with stars.
This morning, no luck. Overcast and no light-show. Left the cabin about 6:00 AM and home a little after 6:30. Feeling very lazy, although I have dozens of things that need to be done.
