six good sounds
1. wind in the dry oak leaves
2. wind in the white pines
3. an exasperated chickadee
4. mustard and cumin seeds dancing in hot oil
5. freight trains passing through the station at night
6. the grandfather clock that strikes the hour.

reading: picture books from the library.
listening to: a celtic harp demo by the sister of a friend of a friend. not bad at all.
working on: washing up the dishes from dinner.
in the garden: i moved the jugs of winter sown strawberry seeds to the coldest microclimate in our yard, so their tender shoots are not misled into a false spring.
