Writing In the Winter Garden article. Programming the new Roofscape, refining the design and functionality. Learning CSS and XHTML to do this, using the Headfirst O'Reilly guide from O'Reilly. Quite exciting.
To the garden in the late morning. In the 20's but the sun was slanting low and so strong it was quite comfortable, even just sitting in the sunroom. Pruned the bigger of the two willows and finished the smaller. Hauled the branches to the compost.
Walked all the way back across town for an appointment. All in all, probably walked close to 10 miles today.
Found a cookbook I really like, French Classics Made Easy by Richard Grausman.
