Day two, 26 October 2015
I woke up just before my nine a.m. alarm buzzed. Got my legs out of bed and switched it out before it rang. Ada realised I was up, jumped on the bed with pure joy, and brushed against me before jumping back down. Then she stood by the door as I got dressed. We walked to the kitchen and headed towards her food, but she’s having none of that and went straight to the outside door. I don’t even think she needed to go out, I think she just wanted to run, stretch her legs and greet everything under the morning sun.
We went out and heard people talking a bit further back. As soon as Ada spotted them, she ran towards them and then back again, circling us one or two times before I reached them. We walked with them for awhile and then headed back. She needs to eat and I still want to snooze for about an hour and wake up at a half-decent time. We stop only for Ada and the goose to run circles around one another. First Ada running him down the ramp, then he circles back, does half a pirouette and stretches his wings as far as they can go, stopping Ada in her tracks. He hissed and growled advancing towards her. Never turning her back, she jumps back, plants the sole of her paws on the ground, and slightly lowers her front. I howler urging her to come to me before this ends in blood. She does, we go back inside, I feeder and move back to bed.
By noon I was alone, so I got up and started my day.
I couldn’t end my day without finishing my final review of Transient, to make sure it has good as it can be with the clay-bricks I had made to mold it. After lunch and a smoke, I set myself a tune and opened Transient to change it one last time. I kept the fire burning throughout the day. Outside was cold and wet from all the raining going on. Still, when I was done I went outside and took a small walk.
When with a relaxed expression I returned, I set another log on the burning ashes, this time vertically, as one of the working-guys at taught me to do. City folk, I imagined him imagining. I wasn’t completely convinced, but the only way to be sure is to try it out. Then I dove into the furniture. It took longer than expected, but it got done. I settled in for the night, had a couple of brief conversations on facebook and chilled until I went to bed, but not before setting the fire again the way I like it.
