Where I am staying right now, the sun pops over the mountains about 5:00 am. That works for me because I tend to wake up really early. And even though this part of the country is known for an abundance of rainy days, lately the weather has been sunny and clear. With regard to temperature, today is a pants and sweater day, possibly warming up to a t-shirt and shorts afternoon. This ties in nicely with my plans, which include walking down the mountain and back up. There is a spot I have been wanting to stop to take some photos of the town in the valley below, and because the road is narrow, it isn't really safe to stop when driving past.
That is pretty much my plan for the day. Since I am not currently painting, I will probably spend a large portion of my day reading, and thinking about painting. I have a couple of new recipes I want to try out--vegan of course. And since I got up so early this morning, a nap seems to be a good way to spend a portion of my afternoon.
Unfortunately, I don't like working at a gallery. I prefer to spend my time painting, or walking up and down the mountain, or napping, or cooking... or doing whatever I want to do at that moment. It is a great luxury at this time in my life to be able to simply do what I want to do.
