Ashley was ready to head on back, but I insisted that we walk as far as First Street, so I could take a picture of the dawn sky, such as it was.
I noticed how sluggish Ashley got when the temperature rose above about 72℉, but I hadn’t really noticed that it was kind of a continuous function. Now that’s gotten quite cool (down near freezing overnight, 43℉ just at the moment), she is full to the brim with energy.
I slept so late this morning, the sun was already up when I got out to walk the dog!
In 2007, when I left Motorola, I was kind of reserving LinkedIn as a potential job-hunting site. In my brain I was already retired, but I hadn’t completely abandoned the possibility I might want another job, so I kept most of my random silliness off LinkedIn, just in case.
That hasn’t made any sense for at least a decade, but it has taken until now for me to get organized to fix it.
If you don’t want to read about my writing, sword fighting, dog walking, random sunrise photos, etc., feel free to use whatever tools LinkedIn provides to filter such stuff, or just stop following me. I’ll take no offense.
Even while I was sick, I still had to walk the dog. I cut back just a bit—when I was at my sickest, I took her for just three walks a day. Now that I’m mostly better I’m back to five or six walks per day, although the mileage is still a bit shy of what it was before I got sick.
I appreciate the less spectacular dawn skies just like the more dramatic ones.
Ashley found a ball. #dogsofmastodon
Walking Ashley gets me out around dawn every morning, giving me a chance to get a dawn photo most days. I kind of enjoy the mix of spectacular ones along with the more pedestrian ones. Here’s a few from the days leading up to the equinox:
Wanted an extra loaf as a gift, so I made double the dough and divided it. Took maybe 15 minutes longer than just one loaf would have, so pretty quick and easy.
The sky went from “Ooh, look at that red ball!” to “Ooh, don’t look at that red ball!” in the time it took me to get my phone out to take a picture.
