On Waking Very Early
I could wish Dawn didn't bother prodding me with her rosy fingers at 4.14 in the morning. They're forecasting 39C today for Perth, and I think I see how it's going to get there - the thing which woke me was a combination of needing to pee, and being too warm to sleep properly (despite sleeping on top of my covers rather than under them). It's still somewhere around the mid to high twenties, by the feel of things.
(Actually, a quick check of Meteye on the weather bureau site shows the temperature at the site nearest to us (Jandakot) is currently about 26C. Which does explain why I woke up so damn early).
So, rather than lie about feeling grumpy because I couldn't sleep, I decided to get up and get the laundry on so I can get it out and onto the line before the weather really starts getting horrible. Actually, now there's enough light to see by, I might shift on to the next part of my routine (watering the plants, then having a shower and getting dressed). If I can get the worst of the housework done by about 10am (about the time the weather really starts hitting the high notes) I can spend the rest of the day sitting around under the air-conditioning playing some (more) of the new games I bought through Steam.
