Getting up early on the weekend is just about my favorite thing to do. Luckily these days it's easy with the sun streaming in by 7:15.
By 9 this morning, Joel and I had already enjoyed a nice breakfast at Starbucks on Broadway and were happily walking through Forest Park listening to the birdsong. We stopped for a little while and watched the tiniest, happiest bird there ever was building a nest out of moss and twigs in a little hollow in a tree. How lucky we Portlanders are to have a park like that right in the city.

After our walk it was more coffee on 23rd, a few errands and then I spent the lion's share of my afternoon knitting. My socks are really taking shape!
The evening began with Indian food and Talk to Her. I love watching a favorite film again. Especially when I've forgotten most of what happens.
