1. A surefire cure for too much thinking is housework. Today I washed all the second floor windows, did all of the laundry including hand washables, ironed a pile of clothing that covered my entire bed, dusted, vacuumed, walked the dog, drove Tess to piano lessons, stopped in Books A Million, Kroger, the bank and the library, raked stones out of the grass, cooked dinner, and worked on the budget. I've exhausted myself into a good night's sleep : )
2. The air is thick with smoke from a controlled burn in nearby forests. The smoke filters the sun to an eerie pinkish-gray and we cannot help but be captivated by its effect.
3. I finish reading one book just as the library has another waiting on hold for me.
