Just an observation. Sigh.

In other news, happy Valentine's Day, to those for whom such things matter. I got taken to dinner at my favourite restaurant - good thing we went early because it was already like Noah's Ark in the waiting area when we arrived (two by two by two by two...) and by the time we were done and picked up to go the waiting time had grown to nearly an hour and people (still Noah's Arking with a vengeance) were spilling into corridors and were practically crowding into the kitchen. There were lots of roses in evidence. You couldn't possibly miss what date it was [grin]

Other than that, quiet day - it froze last night, and it's already at freezing tonight, and it actually SNOWED sometime last night, not much, but enough to stick around in the morning. My poor budding lilacs. I'm afraid they're a goner. And last night my cats freaked out royally when two coyotes howled somewhere REALLY close by. I felt like I should be cowering by a tiny fire in the long winter dark with a gold-nugget-filled creek somewhere near me in the night and bright cold gold rush stars in the sky. I think I read too much Jack London as a kid.

Anyway. Wrote a bunch of pages this afternoon. Let's see if I can't get the middle of Chapter 4 to fold into shape - I have the beginning and the end, and there's a connection in there somewhere, I know there is, I just need to dig it out. See y'all later.
