I started my day with the linger of images from yet another strange dream. I was standing in front of a large window looking out into the back yard. The Girl and her friend were planning on camping out. There were tents and they were oddly shaped, not teepees but not tents. The Girl and her friend were still somewhere in the house. I was either talking to my friend KB who was there, or I was talking to her via phone? I don’t think that detail matters, what matters is that I was talking to KB. While I was staring out the window, dog sized dinosaurs started sniffing around the tents. They may have even knocked one of them over. Then, from the right side of the window came a feathered being. Mostly the feathers were a blue gray except around the gold crown. Around the crown was more of a French Provincial blue. More followed the first rider, they all had the blue gray feathers. I’m not sure if they were riding or gliding, and if they were riding…I’m not sure what they were riding? The last in the procession was another feathered being with a bigger crown, more elaborate. I just knew this was a queen. Was she a bird queen? A fairie queen? Was this the Seelie court? I have no idea but it definitely got my attention. This one might take me some time to interpret.
Today at work could have been called “face cheese” day. There was this one guy who was the worst. His lens popped out of his frame and the lens was so gross I had to wash it with soap and water before I did anything, followed by two alcohol swaps to the inside of the frame. Pieces of grossness were sticking out like straws…if I had a weaker stomach, I would have been in trouble. I guess I just had a lot of lenses under warranty where I had to take out the old lenses and put in the new ones. What turns dead skin green? Never mind….I really don’t want to know. I can say that my days go much faster now that I am in optical.
I came home and was immediately grateful that I turned the air on Sunday night. When I went outside later to water the plants it felt a lot cooler and less humid so I turned it off…I hope I am not sorry tomorrow. I just prefer my windows open and fresh air flowing. This is a baby bird update…
There were six eggs and now we are up to four beaks…only time will tell. I have noticed that a pair of house finch come to the fern when I am back in the house, not just the mama bird.
I am almost finished reading The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes. I really like this book and it is helping me stay in the old Kentucky Appalachian hollow frame of mind…not that I have found anything new. I like this book a lot but I can’t fully recommend it because I haven’t finished it…but I really, really like it so far. There is one thing though…I would love for somebody to go through this book and count how many times the word “perhaps” is in it’s pages. Once I noticed it…it was too late. Now every time I hear it (audio book) I say to myself “there it is again.” Perhaps I am being silly? It doesn’t take away from the story, it’s just something I noticed.
That has been my day today…thankfully tomorrow is half day Wednesday…I should finish the book for sure. I hope you had a great day…Zia
