Good heavens! I forgot to update this evening! I wonder if I'm recovering from my LJ addiction? (Hah! That's likely!) In truth, I've been doping off a lot, which I attribute to a case of Anticipatory Spring Fever (ASF.) This, in turn, is the result of an afternoon of fluffy white clouds in blue sky. One would think that my ASF would depart with the sun, but it hasn't. I'm still alternately dopey and inexplicably cheerful, despite the chill in the air.

The last leaves have vanished from the lawn, but tonight I thought I saw some strewn across a large stretch of it. Then I realized that it was the remains of the hail which fell a couple of days ago. It has retreated into dozens of tiny patches the size of oak leaves. I didn't notice this by day, when the origin of the patches was obvious. It is only by moonlight that they suggest fallen leaves. So, it's winter, and I have ASF, and the residual hail by moonlight carries the suggestion of autumn. To complete the effect, the part of my house that Sluggo doesn't live in is heated to a degree that makes it feel quite summery. Is it any wonder that I'm confused?
