and it's only 10:15.
I awoke at 3:40 this a.m.; not sure why, but there was no going back to sleep. I put on a pot of coffee & fired up the ol' laptop, taking care not to awaken the spousal unit.
Didn't work; she was up by 4:20. Doesn't know why, either.
But the coffee was good, and although I fell asleep for 10 minutes before breakfast, feeling pretty good overall.
Got the oil changed in Li'l Red, bought winter wipers for her car & mine, and made an abortive swing past the Ford dealer for a replacement vent control knob for the Escape. Seems they're closed for inventory. Handy, that.
But I'm back home where it's quiet. My wife is shopping, and both daughters are working today. When Younger Daughter is done, she wants to go drive some more & practice her parallel parking. The plan is that she'll take the road test on Monday & hopefully have her driver's license by lunch time.
We're looking forward to a time when we don't have to ferry her to/from work five days a week. We've been happy to do it, of course, but it's time she cuts another apron string & steps out on her own.
The weather promises to be partly sunny & 52 today, although it's still only 39 degrees now. But all's good, and it'll be a nice day.
Thanks for stopping by.
