The sky was dark at five-thirty this morning when I poured my first cup of coffee. Even the cat looked bleary-eyed as he lumbered across the house and plopped down on the living room floor. He stared up at me and blinked while I checked my Nexus 7 tablet for the arrival of any new e-mail messages delivered during the overnight hours.
A single e-mail arrived from Amazon.com informing me of the arrival today of two repair parts for my dishwasher. That reminded me, I should probably get around to cleaning the lint from the clothes dryer exhaust vent before the weather turns cold.
