I have been neglecting the internet! Sorry! I’ve mostly been busy but also it decided to be properly springtime weather-wise which has been nice, though today it was supposed to be springy but the weather report lied to me and instead of springtime sunshine I got April showers with weird pockets of sun, sometimes heavy showers and I got rather soggy.

But even in the rain I had to stop and get a picture of the Make Way for Ducklings ducks in the Public Garden because they have hats! Ducks in little spring bonnets! It brightened my rainy walk, though I am concerned that the momma duck has no hat.

And then I had a respite from my rainy walk for delicious sushi lunch, and the sushi was so pretty at Haru that I took a photo of it:

This was the Boston UnCommon Roll: crunchy spicy salmon, tuna, avocado, mango, black tobiko and gold leaf. And it was as tasty as it looks.

By the end of lunch (that also included sesame mochi ice cream!) the rain had let up a bit so it was not quite so soggy getting home but it is still rather chilly. I also walked under the bleachers that were being set up for the Boston Marathon on Monday.

And then when I got home Tessa had decided she liked the beanbag chair that she never sits on, maybe because I’d thrown a blanket over it, and she looked like she was floating on marshmallow cloud.

So that was my Thursday, April 12th in pictures. A sushi-filled day with ducks in hats and rain and kittens and tea, though the tea is not pictured.

That looks to be just about as a perfect a day as a rainy Thursday could be!

Thank you for your very singular (and exquisitely written) circus.

Mmmmmm…. sushi! Looks tempting. Fluffy cat on fluffy chair is mirrored perfection.

I just enjoyed your book and finished it last evening. I feel like I should be more intelligent, but I did not understand many things. Perhaps I wasn’t supposed to, but wish I did. Is there a place I could find a short explanation. I adore your imagination!! Where are you from and what do you do for a living besides being an amazing author.?

Wait, gold leaf?
