Better Angels

I'm not awake, and it's already hot. Yesterday was hot, but today will likely be hotter. At 3 p.m. yesterday, we made it to 95˚F, with the heat index at 101˚F. And I'm not awake because I had trouble sleeping last night, and then there were bad dreams. Currently, it's 86˚F, with a heat index of 90˚F.

Nothing but proofreading yesterday, for The Very Best of Caitlín R. Kiernan. Well, actually I signed a small mountain of eBay books, and then Spooky took them to the post office. Then we read. We made it through "In View of Nothing," "A Season of Broken Dolls," and "The Ammonite Violin (Murder Ballad No. 4)." I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon, but we need to get through two stories before then.

Last night, we finished Ken Burns' Civil War documentary. It was somehow even sadder the second time around. And we watched Arsenic and Old Lace (1944) (because it's comforting), and I had some RP.

Please have a look at the eBay auctions. Thank you.

Later,
CRK

    Well, Selwyn is, anyway. Today, we celebrate his ninth birthday. Unfortunately, like yesterday, I overslept. This time until 9 a.m. I'd awakened at…
