5:55 a.m. The sky is beautiful and more so every time I look at it.
6:00 a.m. Classical Stretch in the living room.
6:30 a.m. Trying to read on the deck but can't stop staring at all the glory around me. The birds here are interesting to watch: loons diving, pelicans gliding, seagulls pecking, sand pipers scurrying, pigeons congregating. I watch them and think why would I eat them? Not that I ever ate those particular varieties, but birds are birds, and I'm glad I don't eat them anymore.
9:00 a.m. Everyone except Dad went for a beach walk.
afternoon: Did some shopping with Mike & kids, went to Publix with Jeff, Amy, and Dad, walked across Stewart Lake bridge with Amy.
8:00 p.m. Poker night at our place. Ben, Paul, Noah, Sarah, Mike, and Dad played. I made soup and chili for tomorrow night.
