If I could do that in this space, I could tell you that
Today 3 sea lions began barking in raucous harmony not 75 metres from our front door. We have no idea why, but turns out Paul watched/heard them do the same thing yesterday. Both days, it began about 11 am, happened in sporadic 5 to 15-minute bursts for a few hours, then today, the 3 were joined half an hour ago by another 3 or 4 for an even noisier chorus. Magical mystery!
We have enjoyed astonishing and dramatic conversations between the full moon, an assembly of clouds, and a moodily reflective night-black sea over the past few evenings.
My run today incorporated 560+ stairs which warmed me up quite nicely against the hovering-around-zero temps. I'm hoping to fit in the weekend long run (between 16-20 kilometres scheduled for this week) tomorrow morning. We're bracing for a possible snowfall in the next few days and I'm hoping it won't interfere with training for an upcoming Half Marathon I'm running with my sisters.
I've spent much of today writing a review of an anthology of literary criticism. The review is for a scholarly press and it's due on Monday. All the reading's been done, and much of the thinking, and now I have 612 of max. 700 words done, in a Word file. Given that I still have 200 words of content I want to deliver, tomorrow will involve considerably cutting, swearing, and gnashing of teeth.
I started a new knitting project -- a man's vest striped with gorgeous Noro Silk Garden. To immediately answer Kristen's anticipated question, no I haven't finished my dress, but I need some mindless stocking stitch knitting to work on while we watch Sons of Anarchy. And, tonight, Grimm. Anyone else watching either of those?
