November 14 – what time is it?

Sunrise over Dupont Circle

I woke up at 4:30 this morning. I tried to go back to sleep but I knew it was pointless so at quarter to 5 I accepted the fact I was not on EST time yet and began my day.  I sent out a few text messages, a tweet and a post, just so people would know I was up early (“You were up HOW early?” and “Why on earth were you awake at 4??).

It was so great getting everything accomplished before the work day started! I did my laundry, cleaned my apartment, and walked to the ATM, CVS, dry cleaners and Panera Bread for breakfast all before 9:30am. Pretty impressive.

As you can imagine, I am exhausted now, and after How I Met Your Mother I will be heading to bed and hopefully not waking up until 8. Wish me luck! Today’s picture is of the fountain in Dupont Circle, a block from where I live. When you wake up early, you get to see the sunrise, something I usually miss out on.   I noticed the bright morning light over Massachusetts Avenue as I was hustling over to CVS and made a point to take the long way just so I could get a better look.

I had never read the words inscribed on the Dupont Circle fountain before, and I like how the text captured in my photo frame says “The United States.”  I’m home!

    Victoria, Your grandmother and I have that problem once in awhile and it isn’t from getting use to the time change. It’s because we are old.
    Your grandparents and us visited your Uncle Jack’s friend Donna at her art gallery in Mystic. Donna is renting studio space upstairs to an incredible oil painter- Russ Kramer. He specializies in Marine paintings. I was very struck by his paintings. He has one showing people in the cockpit of a sailing yacht. It has the same intensity as does Renoir’s “Luncheon of the Boating Party” in The Phillips Collection located near Dupont Circle, Have you seen this painting? It draws me in. So does Russ Kramer’s work. You want to be part of the party. Hope you get to visit the gallery when you are home and get to see Russ’s paintings. June
