The house is full of goings-on.
I took a break and went to the nursery on the edge of town, and picked up a few of the first plants I will put in the pots in back.  The sprinkler folks were supposed to come today to turn the timers and the system back on; but I saw no sign of them.  The neighborhood rabbit shows up most mornings, early.  The Stellars jays are back, with their deep blue and their eye makeup and their raucous voices.
No doubt the raccoons are not far behind.

The guest who is evaluating remaining archives is also good company; and three of us (housemate is here) had a delicious, irregular, patched-together and raucous dinner.
I am now falling asleep between sentences.

Good night...
