why I'm not here

this time, there’s a much nicer reason. It’s sunny and seventy degrees here, and the world beckons. We’re having the garden in front of the house terraced (we live on a hillside) for ease of access and also because it’s what I look at out my office window and I want to be dazzled by the fruits of my labors cascading over natural Alger Blue stone. The stone guy is trying to get us to do the same thing behind the house, which would cost a lot of money but boy would it be beautiful. Probably not this year. So today I’m going with Penny to my favorite nursery and I’m going to buy plants. No reading, no writing.

Y’all carry on without me.
