Books: Mudbound by Hillary Jordon. Like books by all the authors to whom I want to compare her, this one has left me haunted by its characters. If you like Faulkner, Kingsolver, Caldwell, or Lee Smith, give this one a try.
Also, Selling Good Design, a book about the "exhibits" of modern furniture that department stores put on in the late 1920s; exhibits that helped move "modern" from the potentially bizarre and outre to an acceptable way to decorate.
Garden: tried to rake up the last of the willow oak leaves, but with those skinny things, some always escape. Finished just before a midday thunderstorm. Lily of the valley and bleeding heart blooming happily; hyacinths nearly done.
Spring cleaning: yeah, did some, mostly so I could reward myself and sit and read
Yard birds: grackles, juncos, house sparrows, purple finches, mourning doves, red-bellied woodpeckers, carolina wrens, cardinals
Listening: to P doing his radio show
