A large batch of small dark birds were lined up on the roof ridge across the street when I opened the shades today. They're gone now, but they were definitely heading for warmer climes. We had chickadees at the feeder earlier and now mourning doves. When the doves aren't eating, they're hunkered down against the wind.
I had a very weird dream last night. My father and another man had challenged a traditionally female competition and won. Their family and Dad and my stepmother and I went and shared a house. Sue made a really big deal about what I was wearing, that it wasn't nice enough, but it was nicer than her jeans and t-shirt, and when we got to the dinner, people were dressed like me. There was a gem and jewelry show before the event and I spent so much time there I never got dinner, so I went back to the house and found a computer with some word games on it. But the programmer had used letters instead of tab, enter, space, arrow keys, etc., so sometimes I'd be entering a word and zip zap! I was ejected from the game.
