And here I was thinking that Moose Tracks ice cream was peculiar to Canada! The creamery that produces it around here is called Kawartha Lakes in Peterborough, Ontario, where moose are most definitely a thing.

I hope the post-op pain is beginning to ebb, Stilly. I hated having to dope myself up to get through the day with busted bones because the drugs made me too weak to get around, especially in and out of the bathroom. That was genuinely grim, and rather frightening.

Work on the book is going better. The client -- not the author -- likes the first chapter, and I'm deep into the second (of five). Author isn't under contract yet for this phase of the project, so I'm not allowed to talk to him about it. He's not going to cheer when he sees how much military jargon I have tossed. It's the kind of book in which soldiers don't fight, they "engage". Not on my watch, they don't.

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, so we are now in Lent, the season of fasting and repentence. I'm not very good at the repentence part, but it's my favourite time of the year for getting my shit together: cooking healthy meals, squaring away the taxes, turning out closets and washing grubby corners. I also go on the wagon in Lent; six weeks without booze is a favour I like to do for my liver. Let's see if I make it all the way to Easter this year.
