quiet in the office today. i get in early as a rule, more to set the course for the day then accomplish any actual work, since most of what i do is on the run, and involves other people in the office.

it's nice though when no-one else is here. the clocks go back next week, which i desperately need to help my body with the sleeping issues. Sunlight is natures alarm clock, and my Dr highly recommends that i stand facing the sun for 20 minutes every morning when I get up. that's fine, but right now, it's still dark out when I do that.

peace and quiet surrounded me. i padded back to the bedroom. Both dogs were curled up on the bed with my wife, the husky's tail tucked over her nose to keep her warm. must be genetic. Casey was warm, curled up under the covers, the baby growing inside her, making her sleepy.

It was frosty out, the first time this year, when i opened the back door. the dogs wandered into the kitchen and out into the yard, and I stepped into the cool air, the sun not yet up, but just starting to turn the sky blue from black.

I love this time of the day. it's quiet, and the house is calm.

Thinking about a career as a tile layer. I did my parents entry way this weekend. i think I'm at the point now where i could charge for my skills, although to date i have not had to lay anything as tricky as marble. $250/Day, 1/2 day minimum.
