Cool, Early, Before Sunrise Morning Coffee Muses
The sun is just touching the tops of the trees. I’m up early to see the grandkids off on their first camping trip to Garner. I hope they have fun.
Ok, I knew it was cooler than I thought when I could see my breath steaming out. But I wasn’t expecting the thermometer on the weather station to be reading 49º. That makes my normal shorts and tank top just a bit lite for the cool. I wasn’t expecting day three to be the coolest yet.
Traffic noises are loud for a Saturday. But then again, with all the main portals into Houston being closed this weekend, I’d be surprised if a lot of folks didn’t try to use our little highway as a detour.
Sorry, I went away there for awhile… there were a pair of birds perched at the top of some dead limbs a ways off that I didn’t recognize. Hawks it seemed, my 20x binoculars just couldn’t bring them close enough, but they appeared to have gray hoods. Went in and grabbed my spotting scope. I got a good look before they flew. I have to say they look like Mississippi kites. The first I’ve seen. Handsome birds, I hope they stay around.
Time to move….
