I don't know why, but I have been having the strangest dreams lately. Every night it's another crazy dream that I remember when I first wake up from the dream, but cannot remember the next morning. Slept in until almost 8 am this morning. I used to always get up no later than 6 am, but for about the last year or so, I seem to need more sleep. I still get up at 6 am when Jean and I have a dog walk planned. Jean is a morning person and likes to head out early. I used to be like that. I watched “12 Years A Slave” last night. It was good, but don't see what all the hoopla was about. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars when rating it. The acting was very good but I thought there were several scenes where Solomon was just standing there staring out into space that dragged out for several minutes. Did a load of laundry after breakfast and then after my gardener had finished, Hiker and I headed out for a very short walk. It was once again sunny but very hazy. We have been having a strong on-shore flow that has been causing the haze. Was lazy most of the day, just being a couch potato watching TV.
