hasui winter river

(no subject)

I have finished The Difference Engine and must echo Kara's reaction of 'Errr- what?' Maybe if I knew more of the period and its figures I might be blown away, or just amused, by the alt.hist aspect; but as a narrative with a plot, it was a tad lacking.

However, this morning I discovered missing mitten under the front porch table. No idea how it came to be there, but now I have a pair and my hands are toasty warm again.

Otherwise I ache severely from walking everywhere in boots and (possibly) *not* working eight consecutive hours a day in Babies (bodies are weird that way.) So shall have epsom bath and curl up with a good book and sleep in tomorrow (ha ha) which I didn't get to do Monday or Tuesday.
