it's important to have a quest object

Ruby Tuesday the Roomba has a new battery. She's zimbering round the living room with carefree joy rather than the piteous crawl she had been reduced to. So that's a success. Alas, my tree-grafting dreams were catastrophically interrupted by a small but show-stopping five centimetres of snow. I had to stay in and read Embassytown instead. Annoying; also good.

This morning, my airy opinion that the tow-path would surely be free of snow were proved awesomely wrong. Instead I had a mile or two's walk on an inch of compacted snice, which seems to have used muscles in my torso I had forgotten all about. To the people cycling, I salute you, you maniacs. There were some nice redwings out and about, too, but I was too busy doing that placy-foot-flat-careful thing to truly appreciate them.

After a pointless round of cookware shops I remembered where pans come from and went to TKMaxx. There's a shoe I'm interested in, too, but it never went down low enough in Shuh and I'm not convinced it'll make it through to full markdown. Also I forgot to take a note of the brand, so I'm never going to see it again. But theoretically something like it might turn up in TKMaxx, so I keep on looking.

Anyway: yes. 365 days of house

More wallpaper stripping
More paint scraping
More knocking out of blown plaster
Fleece for garden plants
Obtained pot for apple tree
Replacement saute pan sourced and bought
New house number bought

It's been a bit of slow week. I need to step up.
