I've had a rather sleepless night and up too early. Not sure why except there is something nagging in the back of my mind and I'm not sure what that is either. That little feeling of forgetting to do something. So I guess basically I don't know anything! At least it's Friday and that makes most of us pretty happy. Suppose to have a few showers, although doesn't sound like a lot. I can see the water in the lake dropping, beaches are beginning to show.
What a busy day I had yesterday. Lots of people in doing research, etc. This is my summer student's last week, so you know things would pick up and I'd be overrun. Oh well that's how it rolls sometimes. Not a great morning for birds on my walk, think this weekend we will try for some more shorebirds before they all disappear too. Exercise class last night - more punishment for the body - oh the things we do to stay in shape. Since I'm not a big fan of exercise except walking which I love, I can't believe that another week or so and I will have been at it a year. Some nights it feels like I just started but I joined the group the first of last September. How time flies.
23rd August 1974 - Fine Friday, overcast and rain overnight.
24th August 1974 - Mother, Ruth up here 7:30 to go to Yarmouth. Gertrude went with us. Overcast but not a bad day. Foggy, stopped on our way back for Kenneth's wedding. More food. Home at 6 o'clock. Had my hair cut, washed and set. Small deer in swamp this side of Lore's. Spotted.
25th August 1974 - Beautiful fall day. The locus' are singing more. Birds not singing, very quiet. Swallows gone. Every day same.
Enjoy your day!
