an actual newsy update

G. and the kids are in Richmond, Virginia, where G.'s mother was admitted to palliative care last week. (She has lung cancer and has chosen to discontinue chemotherapy.) She is comfortable and feisty and doing better every day, her prognosis lengthening probably as you read this.

They will be gone for about a week. I am on my own until they get back.

I have not had this much completely unstructured time...ever? I have one work deadline on Wednesday and one appointment on Monday and that's it.

And a lot of perishable vegetables to eat. I see soup on the horizon.
