♦ The Boarder enjoyed real meat first thing this morning. In addition to chicken dinner for cats. The fact that I was browning meat for spaghetti sauce motivated him to leave my nice comfy bed (he had returned to it after appropriate fueling and wind sprints) to remind me that he is, after all, an obligate carnivore. It is nice and cool in the house yet, with a forecast high of 19°C so there may also be baking later — this will only be of interest if the recipe includes butter.
♦ In the Spot the Family Resemblance category, there's this! Nicely done!
♦ I am considering swimming twice on Thursday. For the first time since ... well ... last summer. We have a pond swim (weather permitting) in the evening — and I could swim long course at Nepean in the morning.
♦ It has cooled down. I might be able to wear that motorcycle jacket today!
♦ There is a nosegay of perennial sweet peas by my computer, and I can see the potted mandevilla blooming outside. Cool or not, it is a nice time of year!
♦ I think I want to try a Cornus alternifolia out back ...
