This was a beautiful late spring day, possibly Nature's attempt to atone for those hot summer days we had when it was supposed to be spring. I didn't get the chance to do much outdoors, but I appreciated the weather all the same.

What did I do today? Among other things, I: read bits of library books, did laundry in spite of unexpected obstacles down in the basement, listened to music when my brain refused to deal with anything else, tried to play with computer graphics, realized that I was in too serious a mood for that kind of play, and prevented housemates from locking themselves out of the house.

Also went to the grocery store for the second day in a row to take advantage of having two months' worth of food stamps to spend in the next month. Since the weather was kind enough not to drain all my energy, I figured this was a good time to stock up on canned goods to eat on those days when I can't get out for fresh food. So the little shopping basket got filled with things like a can of matar paneer and tins of cuttlefish along with the fresh fruits & veggies I can't quite get enough of yet. Speaking of fresh fruits, the bag of cherries I bought included a surprising number of Siamese fruits, providing amusement as I tried to decide which part of the human anatomy each doubled cherry might represent.

In the evening I went for another walk to see a sunset which contained every hue that isn't green. The lack of green in the sky was made up for by the trees, of course, including one of the trees that blocked the roads during Tuesday's storm. That was really quite a large tree. It was chopped up enough to get it out of the way of cars, with a sign on it saying a big "Thank You!" those those who did the chopping. I wish I'd stopped to count the rings.
