"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

The Return of Snow

Not so long ago we got 10 inches, yet they're surprisingly suprised by the 5 inches received this morning.

As it opens more fully, my camellia looks lovelier every day.

Busy day at the bird feeders, as you might imagine. Not so busy in the downstairs sitting room, where my fingers on the keyboard are the only thing moving. Ruth and Jewel are soundly sleeping here on the sofa. The result of vigorous snow romping.

And my chipmunk has no doubt retreated deep into his burrow, until the next warm spell.
