Good Friday is always a lost holiday. (And I still resent both having religious feasts be statutory holidays *and* there being two of them in the same weekend.) Yesterday was another marathon and today was the Saturday-substitute achey logey fall apart aftermath. Had a good imitation of a cold this morning but have overdosed it into quiescence. Handyman was to come today to do a number of needed chores about the house but cancelled as his son was in town and it was going to rain, so no raccoon baffles or new clothesline. Thus read O-oku 2-9 and made a carrot soup-with-other-stuff-included (collard stems, sweet potato, and a white potato for body) and that was pretty much it.
