At left is what the place looked like yesterday, all sunshine and birdsong and flowers (I think they’re some kind of hellebore). Mid-sixties. Pure delight.

Below is the forecast we woke up to:

But I didn’t care. Part of my breakfast was a Cadbury’s chocolate Easter egg, stuffed with chocolate buttons. I love those things! So now there will be loud music and much beaming–followed by a sudden crash (at which point I’ll have a wonderful long bath and a huge lunch, so, hey, it’s going to be a good day).

May your day be as fine.
