39… Not That Far From Freezing

39… That’s the forecast low for tonight…

Got me to thinking about where we are in the span of life, thus far this year.

So, about 10pm I slipped out onto the porch in the dark… Lit the burn pit…

Listened to the frogs, and, whoops… Some bird out by the dogs suddenly screeched and chattered – wonder if that old yellow tom cat found him? There goes another jet plane headed for SeaTac – sure wish they had not changed their flight path… Even at 15k feet they interrupt the silence… Won’t be long before the mosquitoes will be giving the bats a tasty treat! Note to self: build a bat house at the back of the property….

We are just 6 weeks from the longest day of the year, and the start of summer. Spring is essentially half over. We broke records last week with a couple of 80 degree afternoons. Praying for a cooler Summer!

What I really thought about is that the year is soon to be half gone. What were those “promises” I made back on January the first? I do not make resolutions, only promises. (There goes a killdeer in the front yard… Must be that black and white tom cat hunting…) I dislike breaking promises!

Actually, as I think this through I realize that we are about half way through the year and the temps are still cool like they were when I considered the promises for 2014. Then, I look at the growing “To Do” list and realize that I keep accomplishing tasks, but I am not seeing substantial change like I wanted.

My daily list of actions must really be changed to a “promise list”.

Perhaps more items would be ticked as complete…
