🍂 December 17th. Humid and warmer than usual, rain in the forecast. Standing in the morning air, typing this in one hand while Zeke pulls on his leash. Zeke is my six-year-old shepherd mix, he had ACL surgery back in August and is almost back to normal now.

The neighborhood is quiet, but the woods are lively. Merlin Bird ID picks up Junco, Chickadee, Nuthatch, Woodpecker, Robin, Goldfinch. Wishing to go hiking with my daughters, but between the weather and our usual Sunday responsibilities I don’t think it’s in the cards.

Today’s agenda is week planning, meal prep, setting this week’s workouts and vitamins, processing mail, and tidying up. Eileen and I do most of this together, over coffee, and it’s a highlight for me each week. We’ve recently subscribed to a physical Sunday newspaper too, so we may read a bit. Oh, and we’ll figure out what’s left to prepare for Christmas.
