The day started out sunny and bright.
No this is not my pic. I googled it. I was surprised to find this hawk in my neighbourhood. I usually see them flying and wheeling in the sky, as I drive past fields where cows graze.
Not this close to where people live.
But there are a lot of trees where I live and I have seen woodpeckers and owls; birds once thought to live only in forests.
The rest of the day was dull. I had planned outdoor activities and a BBQ for supper, but had to cancel. It rained off and on all afternoon. Too much rain this summer. Too many clouds.
It's the energy that feels different on a cloudy day. Heavier, more subdued. There is no bright shining sun to mark the hours. No light to guide us as morning becomes afternoon, and afternoon fades into evening.
Sounds are muted.
I feel sleepy, dreamy, yet restless.
I told my daughter over the phone that I was fine.
