A long, slow, happy day. I slept late, didn’t do much, and we listened, over and over again, to a new CD, an early birthday present from Jenny. The CD is Mambo Sinuendo
, by Ry Cooder and Manuel Galban – haunting and sublime.

I did manage to turn the rest of our mushroom bed. The ground’s still frozen underneath, but the frostline has retreated to almost a foot underground now. When it gets to two feet we’ll be ready for the spawn.
