Small sorrow.

First I left my camera away from home last night, and now I don't seem to be able to make it talk to the computer. This state of affairs is no good. And I had a picture I really wanted to give you this evening. I am starting to do the things my father taught me: if there's a cable involved, try a different cable. Try a reboot. Try different permutations of plugging the camera in, plugging the cord in. And nothing. So, here's a birdhouse instead.

Perhaps the machines will be happier in the morning.

Gah! [A postscript, moments later.] And now I've dropped the cap for my hot water bottle right down the drain of my bathtub. Clearly, something has gone wrong with my overall vibe.

The birdhouse is lovely. But: is it already snowing there? Or is this from last year?

(Maybe next fall I'll see snow again...)

No--those are big, wrapped-up hay bales!
