Up early. Knocked out a few lines at the keyboard while the carpenter framed out the new tool shed on the west side of the house. Worked until just afternoon, then went off running errands. Lowes, the nursery, the grocery store, liquor store. Finished the trellis work over the bay window, too. Hoping to set the trumpet vine on a southeastward migration. We'll see how it fares.
Read the new Sherman Alexie story "Clean, Cleaner, Cleanest" in this week's NYer, and enjoyed it. Whole issue's devoted to "labor." Richard Ford's joint is next up.
