Light And Dark
Suitable to my mood, by the time the game was over the gloomy cloud cover was also overhead. Crum. Another lost opportunity.
At sundown, the dark cloud bank had moved over to the west, leaving a sliver of light at the horizon and brightening the the trailers above. The temperature dropped significantly and I hurried through chores to get back in the house to fire up the wood stove.
Somewhere in the 4 a.m. time frame, Ralph leaves his customary place in bed behind my knees and puts a soft paw against my face. He's done it often enough that I know the routine. I lift the covers and my redheaded cuddlebug goes into the blanket cave to snuggle against my chest and we both go back to sleep. There are worse ways to start the day.
