Extra time, a laugh and the woods we know.

1. It is not raining, so instead of dashing straight into town for breakfast, I walk all the way to the cross roads with Nick.

2. The man at the table next to me is giggling out loud at items in his newspaper. He sounds like a small child, not a serious man on his way to work.

3. PaulV takes me to the woods when he goes for a run. I spend a happy hour walking round in circles. I naviate mainly by landmarks -- this is a female trait, apparently. It's very effective sometimes, but it's better to combine it with knowing which way you are pointing and a feeling for the lie of the land (that's what men do, as a general rule). A new bit of woodland is good practice.

  3. Just wanted to thank you for sharing so much - I don't rea you every day, but when I do, I try to catch up on what I've missed.

  4. Aha! Sandy quotes one of my favories, an American poet, Robert Frost; "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Eve", I believe. I have been gone for since mid February, when I started packing to move. Now, I'm back, and had a good catch up read here today. It was like catching up with an old friend after a couple of months absence.
