Chirp, chirp, twitter, twitter..........insert birds calls here--- it's 4 am and birds don't sleep in the city like they do at my house.
Beep, beep, beep...bam, bam, bam...insert the sounds of a big construction crew building a big parking garage here.......it's 5 am and they are fast at work.
I took the sleep mask, I took the ear plugs........
Oh- the fire engine just went out and an ambulance is coming in.
Insert those here it's 5:45 am.....
Sigh- yes we are spoiled and if we did live her I think we would adjust to the noise.
But sleeping in the city has become a challenge for me.
It never gets dark in cities and cities never sleep.
We made a quick trip over to see the son's new house over the 4Th.
Then up to see my mother and Penny the cat.
Who, as you can see, is still living the high life and taking her daily rides with Mom back and forth throughout the house.
The weekend, despite some rain, was very pleasant.
Being July you can not always say that about Norfolk. It can be hot and muggy.
We left today and it was still a wonderful cool morning.
The view down the block.
Don't you want to live here?
I love the area of Norfolk- near downtown. The houses are old turn of the century mixed with some new and old apartment buildings. The apartment's, gone condo now, are as big as some houses I have been in. High ceilings, big rooms,beautiful woodwork, large windows, and tree lined streets.
One of those "walking neighborhoods."
But we hit the road home
Stopped for lunch.
And now we are thinking about going to work tomorrow!
But first- I am going to sleep in my own bed while I listen to the crickets and frogs.... my birds get up about 6am and that is okay by me!
