It’s not raining today (yay!) which means I should be outside mowing the grass (bleah!) instead of here at the ‘puter, but I’ll get to it. Eventually. Ahem. FWIW, I already have laundry washing so I can get it out on the line, so I’m making progress on the stuff I couldn’t do Saturday or […]

What is it?
