3. It has stopped raining. The fast setting sun through grey clouds makes the trees out back look like seaweed mountains. The leaves on my neighbour's cherry are turning a surprising shade of red. *My* cherry tree is all but denuded without even going yellow snerf. Also my shoes leak because there's a rip in the sole. No, actually, they always leaked, from above, and I don't know why. Dubbined the uppers today to go to the library, just as I did every day that incandescens was here last year, and to as little effect.
4. It is getting cooler and therefore I am roasting beets, in the manner described somewhere, which is individually in foil at 350F for umm I forget how long. An hour maybe? Two? Three? beets being beets being haaaard vegetables.
