Shadow who hates storms especially thunder and lightning got all nervous with rain gently falling in the forest, and apparently the cones and nuts falling on the roof in this forest by the Hudson River make her think of thunder. Anyway, I came out of the bedroom at 9:00 AM and she has taken over the sofa and moved the pillows to suit. As for the rest, Russ makes coffee the night before and he gets on his computer at least an hour before I get up. Right now we look out of the trees to the pavilion and pool. Days are starting later and getting dark earlier. We do not have TV right now, so I am getting lots of reading done. Finally reading the Hunger Games Trilogy for fun. Not so bad.
Also getting in the cool pool for a descent period of exercise. Not the 82 degrees at the YMCA.
