titmice crying in the non-rain

The day featured glorious warm weather. The temperature stayed cool and breezy enough for a fleece, but just barely. I wore my blue scarf anyway. I hope the affectation was excusable.

At lunch I went to Breckinridge Park, where two Tufted Titmice frolicked.

I ate lunch at Panda Express, and spent the early afternoon finishing phase one of a project.

After work, I took Beatrice for a walk. She explored everything. I also looked up the local annual convention of the Texas Ornithological Society, tempted to join a field trip. Those bird walks help me learn my birds. But all the trips start at 6 a.m. and end at 2 to 4 p.m., on a day predicted to be rainy and chilly between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. I will find a shorter walk and self-cater--and maybe go to a lecture at the convention. Why are weekdays warm and weekends windy and chilly?
At least the convention had Thursday and Friday for good weather bird walks.

We ate sushi at Wasabi, which was uncharacteristically busy. We talked of possible vacations for next Summer--the Douro region of Portugal, or the highlands of Scotland or Kalispell in Montana and Glacier National Park, or perhaps Calgary and Lake Louise. We've only just begun to sort it out.

Now we are watching a vintage Willie Nelson concert on PBS. His voice amazes.
