Things that happened today:
- Prompted to turn on the broken dishwasher, I first checked the water line valves, made sure there was no impingement, and turned it on. It worked! Sometimes machines need vacations, too .
- This time of year the weather is too beautiful to shut the outside out, so the front door stays open. As I was crossing the living room a brown winged creature swooped past and lighted on the ceiling. Our visitor spent the day there, perhaps disturbed by the construction across the street, and rested until dusk. I then turned the indoor lights off, covered the computer screen with a towel and sat outside on the porch, waiting. Very shortly, our silent creature swept out into the night to hunt out his dinner. Our visit from the bat was over.
