Darkness comes earlier now, and so I must move my evening reading routine from the back porch to the living room.
The dogs follow: Mickey to the couch, Caeli to the chair, Tag next to me on the recliner. Dewey Kitty perches on the recliner's headrest.
I'm reading more pages now, as there are no lambs, horses, chickens, wrestling dogs, to distract me.
For now, until the weather gets colder, there also is no fire to lull me to sleep.
