Plums are blooming out the back. University cherry trees, though many seem dead. My cherry is at the knobbly stage. This seems a bit early to me because the years I remember cherries blooming about the n'hood were ones with warm sunny spells in mid-April. But it may be that only cold winters and springs have everything blooming first week in May.
Suddenly have Tuesday to Friday off next week. In access of optimism think 'I should go see someone out of town.' Not sure there's anyone to see, alas.
Washing machine has mystery leak- into the machine, fortunately. Come down to do laundry and find it 1/3 full. Turned off cold tap last time, find it 1/3 full again. Shall shut off hot tap next and see what difference that makes. Truly, plumbers and dentists are the curse of the modern bank balance.
