During the week I wake up in the dark to be at my paying job by 7:30 a.m. Therefore I get to see lots of sunrises, sometimes before I even leave the house depending on the time of year.
The shot above shows some ice on the creek that has now melted.
Speaking of melting, I'm liable to have a meltdown* starting today and ending next Saturday, thanks to my paying job. For now, however, I'm going to sit back, relax, ignore the impending doom** and enjoy my Sunday.
* Meltdown = Dread and fear relating to having to be in Northern Virginia for the paying job. All week. No access to internet during the day and very limited access at night, depending on the mercy of a hotel business center.
** Doom = Northern Virginia, which is loaded with cars and people and traffic and more people and more traffic and congestion. And people. Plus traffic.
There is a good reason why I moved from NoVa back to Mathews years ago, and it involves a sincere desire to live far away from people, traffic, concrete, pavement, chain stores, malls and insanity. With all due respect to Northern Virginians, if I didn't have to go for the paying job, I'd be thrilled never to see the beltway, Route 7, the toll road, the Springfield mixing bowl,
However, I am looking forward to eating Vietnamese and Thai food until I bust wide open.
Have a great Sunday that does not involve
p.s. For those--such as Mathews Mark-- who may be looking to throw a party at my house this week, the Chesapeake Bay Parents will be here minding the place, so just make sure you invite them . Oh, and if you could do a load of laundry and clean the entire upstairs I'd truly appreciate it.
