Happy Spring

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, and Passover, and generally Happy thank-goodness-the-winter-is-over!

It's a grey drizzly day here, and I shall spend the morning cleaning my house because I'm having guests for dinner. I'm cooking a turkey, because I didn't get to cook one at Christmas, and I love turkey and especially turkey soup. I have some nice local organic greens to go with it, and I think I'm going to grill asparagus, drizzled with lemon olive oil, and cook brussels sprouts in olive oil and salt in the frying pan. I have some new kind of potatoes, I forget what they're called, that are supposed to be excellent for baking so I hope will roast well. And I'm making stuffing. So it'll be good. We have Damasco wine to go with it. The guests are my oldest friends, kp and mkb, and I haven't seen mkb since before Christmas, so THAT'll be good, too. No doubt Tabitha will be thrilled, as both of them are Cat People, and tend to make more fuss of her than of Robinson. Both she and Robinson will get some small bits of the bird, so everyone will be happy.

  • RIP Ray Bradbury

    I wanted to write something about Ray Bradbury

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

  • Profound Gifts

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
