  • 09:57:47: Actually I'm listening to Stanford's Symphony #1 and Irish Rhapsody--over and over. CD ends, I can get up and move for a little.
  • 10:00:59: Yellow-billed cuckoo calling in back yard...that muffled "clough...clough...clough...clough...clough-clough." So shy...no pix.

Wednesday ALREADY???

Time flies when you're not having fun.   Or rather, time for doing what you want flies away while you feel mired forever in what it not fun.

Or something like that. 

Anyway, it's Wednesday; yesterday was so hot and muggy we finally gave up and turned on the AC.  I slept through the night without waking up in a pool of sweat.  That was good.   Tonight, choir practice.  In between finishing the last bits for the package of copy edits that goes back to Production and hauling the mass of stuff to the FedEx office to be shipped away, overnight express.   I wish I had time to go back through the ms. again to check all my own marks, make sure I've been as consistent as I meant to be, but...tempus done fugited (and if that doesn't make every Latin scholar shriek, I don't know what would.)
