Tomatillo etc

Obviously distant snow has a positive effect on seedling sprouting, because the tomatillos are all up, two more rock melons, the strawberry spinach, and two seakale, more zucchini and the first pumpkin. B got a call to go and help out the school again. I worked on Dog and Dragon and polishing up Save the Dragons, and a little bit on the steampunk MG book - it was a windy day with spots of rain, on which one is glad to work indoors. I also got the net out and started cleaning it - 30 litre bucket of seaweed off it - so far. Won't set there again!

Scottish dancing this evening in the Masonic hall -complete with a picture of the queen ... in 1959. Mary - our instructress had brought along two pairs of dancing slippers. Red ones and black ones - which do you think go faster? ( no, spare your mind of the thought of me in ballet slippers). The girls got to wear them. I need a clockwork motor on my head to get me into the right place instead.

  1. Are you polishing Save the Dragons purely on spec, or do you have a potential buyer for it?

  2. Seaweed that's been washing around in the tide is already starting to decompose. You don't want to eat that. It's good for the veggies though.

  4. The Clockwork Dancer? Now there's a title that deserves a steampunk romance to go with it...
