Fishy Circumstances

Recently

a.k.a. I really need to close some of these windows full of tabs before I accidentally hit "Close Other Tabs" again.

* 7680 Harry Potter books stolen.

* One of the good things about my sister moving to D.C. is it ups the odds I'll be able to go back and visit Colonial Williamsburg, especially now that I know it has a working windmill.

* A day or so ago, I unexpectedly noticed a partial baguette lying, moldy, behind the barrel with the honeysuckle and clematis in it. I thought I would have remembered something like that being there if I'd seen it before. C. guessed that a friendly neighborhood critter left it there recently. This morning, there were crumbs all over the deck, but no baguette. At least I don't have to figure out a way to move it now! Meanwhile, the creeping thyme is starting to flower.

* Speaking of the deck, we lit the chimenea for the first time this year on Sunday night. It was a very pleasant way to spend the evening. Our chimenea is quite small, so keeping the fire going is a relatively high-maintenance activity. Still, once it's good and hot, the coals linger for an hour, radiating heat enthusiastically.
