Got up early ’cause I couldn’t sleep.

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt

I’m posting early for being on Vacation.  I woke up at about 5:45 and then my mind wouldn’t turn off.  This doesn’t happen to me very often.  Probably because I knew I had to be up this morning to meet the arborist who is coming to check out our apple tree, and a few other assorted trees and shrubs in the yard.  And I was thinking about paint.  Specifically about painting the spare room and the hallway.  Why?  Ask my mind.  Or just look at what I have been doing for the past few Vacation days.

For example, yesterday was mostly spent washing walls – again.  Well, I did read a book, but definitely also washed walls.  The spare room will be ready to patch after today when I finish washing one more wall, and then I should be able to get paint on Friday and prime.  Woo hoo!

Of course, I also found time to take a few pictures (not of the walls – washing them does not make them look any different from the last round of photos I posted – you’ll just have to wait until they are primed for the first peak at the “before – getting there – after” round of shots).

Here is a hummingbird series taken with the emPhone zoomed in way up to the top of a dead branch on our cherry tree.  Damn bird wouldn’t get any closer…

And here are some various blooms in the garden, as well as one shot of the tomatillo plant.  Not sure anything is going to happen with this plant, but it looks cool right now.
