We’ve had frost on the ground the last three days running. It’s not been much below freezing, since the hanging baskets and roses on the front porch are all still alive … but Winter is coming.
A productive weekend: remote work and chores ate almost all of it. All standard stuff I’ve talked about a dozen times. Boring, but productive.
Tonight I had a nice chat with my oldest friend (not elderly: but I’ve known him since I was four). Highlight of the weekend, really.
