holy cow

is it cold outside!!!!!
I woke up before the dawn
way before dawn
do you know how dark it is at 5.30 am?
and how long it takes for the sun to come up?

as I was making my second cup of
wake me up
I glanced out of the window and saw the mist rising on the lake
I jumped into my clothes
no jammies outside these parts

with coffee in hand
no socks or shoes or jacket toed!!!
I went as close as I can
that No Trespassing sign
stops me in my tracks every time
and the neighbour is home at this time of day!!!

and took these
there were some ducks floating
on what must be warm water
or the mist wouldn't be rising


the other neighbours dock
and the trees starting to colour on the other side

they are swimming round in circles
to keep warm

the sun was beginning to light the tops of the trees on the other side of the road

and I ran back inside
coz it's freaking cold out there

I'll stay here for a while and enjoy the warmth

to show you
the sister's scarf is done and dusted
it is complete
no more wip

I put little fru frus on the ends
Gee I hope she likes it!!!!!
Now to find something else to keep me occupied
and out of trouble
off to browse through my new books
