The Poetry Fishbowl went pretty well, with plenty of great prompts, although modest sponsorship. Progress was not helped by ISP outage for most of Thursday and into Friday morning. Fortunately everything is fine now.

Yesterday we got a load of firewood delivered, and started carrying it into the house and woodbin. \o/
