The day already feels remarkably wonderful. The deck’s gentle breeze offers a refreshing wisp of air and coolness with our 65 degrees and that pleasant coolness seems to present itself throughout the back lawn. Chief is lounging at the top of the steps in accordance with his daily ritual, while Erma rests nearby me, and The Sisters are scouring the entire yard for any excitement they can find or that they can create. I love watching Bailey and Harrigan being on high alert this time of day.
It’s just turned past the eight o’clock hour and the energy of the day is thrilling.
I only recall rising once during the night for a nature break and other than that, I slept soundly and comfortably. Other than the typical stuffiness from the sinus, I feel invigorated.
I have a hankering to exercise my body with some hiking and I am thinking Woodland Cemetery might be the place. I would like to find the gravesite of NCR founder, John Patterson, and revisit the gravesites of Col. Edward Deeds, William Chryst, and Charles Kettering. I think my legs can handle the jaunt up and down the hills, though slower-moving it may be.
My friend, Jeff Carter, has a new addition to his family and home, a beautiful little white Westie sweetness named Maisie. His photos of her are adorable. Let the adventures begin.
Another photo is one taken by a Carillon Historical Park regular eagle photographer, Ann Lindner. Ann has become a delightful pal and I always look forward to seeing her at the park. There are several favorites from the Eagle Paparazzi, but Ann stands out. I’ve included a photo she recently took of one of the baby bald eagles flying before the Carillon clock tower. Outstanding.
And, now, it’s time to put my money behind my belief that I should make it a great day!
