Lovely talk on the phone last night, that went well into the wee hours. I simply didn’t want to hang up, but fatigue eventually drew me to snooze-ville. I woke up about an hour later and stumbled upon an interesting lj, and ended up engaged in some interesting conversation there, too.
I’m not feeling fatigued this morning, and I got my first pente defeat at the hands of bhk, trying to sink The Dreaded Pirate Greybeard’s Pente-ship Barkin’ Lotus!
newt and friend on the porch yesterday.

Beautiful thought, and I’m all for it.

Still unsure what I’m up to today – no word on putt-putt or movies or whatnot, but I’m off to get ready for my day. Shower, Yoga and morning walkies. Until later, dear journal.
