This day is sunny and gorgeous, clear. Trees from our back deck glow copper and still green, and the air is fresh. Rosemary's scent permeates the house. Daphne sleeps in a sunpatch, for once not eating the plants. There is much to be grateful for - that I can enjoy the leisure and have the financial ability to enjoy the creation of the above menu is just a part of that. We'll take a walk later, when it's a bit warmer, maybe continue reading Byron's silly and excessive Don Juan.
