Mornings by the beach, while Ngaio and J are away, and I have responsibility for their dog. I might happens to be allergic to this pup, but gosh I love her. I dose myself up on antihistamines just so we can hang out, though I've had to stop her from sleeping on the bed. It's nice waking up early and having a reason to walk by the coast, and then more of it in the evening - today's sunset was a lovely rosy glow. In between I got a few things done, had arvo ramen at Rising Sun in Newtown with Tess and Lucy, a couple of Young Henrys and a lot of laughter. It was a fine Sunday.
