Once again, Dorothy reminds me to be grateful we live in town and don't have to nurse a septic tank. Thanks for that.

First shoots in the garden; bulbs planted in front of the house in one of our few full-sun spots, and the primrose in full yellow blossom.

The Robinovitch family has returned; I hear them in the morning and I saw Papa pulling something delicious out of the lawn the other day. Few things amuse me quite so much as the sight of robins running; they look like old ladies hustling to catch the bus.

I read "Journal of the Plague Year" in university, some 40 years ago. I don't need to read it again; I remember it all too well, especially in my least-favourite dreams. Likewise "La peste". Somehow epidemic disease is still worse in French, even if it's an allegory for fascism. Or maybe because.
