Random thoughts

It seems to have been a beautiful day here - heck, a beautiful weekend, with temperatures around 8C, sun, melting snow, everything. But I say “it seems” because I have no first-hand knowledge; I was inside both days, and the closest I got to enjoying the sunshine was letting the cat out. Not that I’m complaining… oh, wait, yes I am. But feel free to ignore it, I’m sure it will pass. There are probably lots of people who would love to be able to spend hours sitting around indoors reading Greek philosophy… maybe? A few?

Rogue looks much like it did yesterday, though I have finished a few more rows. No pictures until there’s noticeable progress.

We did have a yummy dinner last night - homemade pizza. Mark has written it up in scrumptious detail in his blog; go on over and check it out! He’ll be the official chronicler of our cooking endeavours, though I’m sorry to say that while I’m in the throes of my Major Fields it’s unlikely that we’ll be doing anything particularly extravagant. Once that’s over with maybe we’ll get back into the swing of our ridiculously over-the-top cooking, though. I hope so - we both enjoy the process as much as the result.

And, finally, because I don’t have much to say today, and I haven’t had a picture of him in a while, here’s a gratuitous Tigger shot. Right now I really feel like following his example and curling up somewhere for a while…

The little ingrate isn’t shunning the bed you knit for him, is he?

No, no. Actually, this is an old, pre-knitted-bed photo. He loves his bed quite beyond my expectations, actually - he only really uses the basket in the study when we’re both in there and he wants to be with us (awww…).

Good luck with the studying. Was reading philosophy on such a nice day better than reading Juvenal would have been?

Yes, actually, it was. But now I’m back to my real loves, Catullus and Horace and Tibullus, so I’m happier. But I’ll be glad when this is all over! Thanks for the good wishes.
