Too Bright PM & AM
It's that time of year close to the Summer Solstice for the Northern hemisphere, when it's light enough here in Northern Europe to read a book outside at 9pm (maybe later) and again already at 4:55am (or maybe earlier; that's the time I noticed it today). That's not a lot of darkness to sleep by! Only 19 more days of getting brighter and brighter before we start to slide back into more darkness. Funny to think of it getting darker all summer.
This morning David spotted a deer and her fawn in the field behind our house. The fawn was so small it was only visible when it was hopping around in the tall grass! Easy to hide. Fun to watch. At one point the mama turned her head and stared straight at us, far away in our upstairs window. She decided we were not a threat and continued grazing.
This weekend we recycled what seemed like 25 lbs of paper, and our shredder got some good use too. Now to see how I can stack that much in the street until they take it away tomorrow. The moving company guys will not realize how thankful they should be.
Off to a farewell lunch with some friends - the hostess is moving to Dubai (the German mother of one of Emily's classmates, whose father is Turkish).

Yes, you've got the timing right. Sunrise was at 4:52 today, and sunset will be at 9:09, according to the BBC.
Even 30 minutes before or after those times, we could be reading books outside...
