Sophie again

Sophie has some unlikely hangouts, unlikely that is, if you don’t have the full story. She hangs out here because the skylight lets her watch birds in flight.


My world got a little smaller Sunday at 11:30 AM when I fully realized that at that moment I was sick with a cold or worse. I feel like I could shake most of it today, but there’s no guarantee. This doesn’t happen to me often, but hibernation is clearly the answer.
