It was a windy, lovely day. It was shockingly warm despite the gusty breezes that shook dead branches from the trees, but I didn't spend much time out in it.
The barometer was falling, too, you see. Falling fast and as it fell, I had sharp. staggering pains in the left side of my skull. Yeah, had it for years and yeah, should have expected it-- But I didn't, and it still hurts like hell. I got a few things done around the house (including nice from-scratch oyster & vegetable stew for dinner) but mostly I just endeavored to persevere.
