Plan today: get some of the hardy spring things in the garden (radishes, carrots, spinach, dandelions?), walk the dog, read. It's still a Rest Day. Tomorrow I may try to write the short story that's due at month's end, and Sunday, hopefully, I have a consultation with ashacat about how to make the cultural milieu of the novella not named "REZ" ring true.

After that, repairs on "REZ" and on "The Slaughtered Lamb."

you can always find a razor lying in the road

I've done a First Book Friday post for jimhines, and you can read it here. It's all about Jenny Casey...

Also, naps are plentiful, naps are cheap. This makes them the opposite of guineas. Unfortunately, they are not so useful as guineas.
