Poem for Wednesday and Enid A. Haupt Garden

Rakka eda ni kaeru to mireba chocho kana
By Arakida Moritake
Translated by R.H. Blyth

A fallen leaf
Flew back to its branch!
No, it was a butterfly.


On Tuesday the serious work of fixing up our basement finally began! We had the paneling replaced after the flood, but the whole basement needs to be repainted, recarpeted, and lots of little things. The cats were not at all happy that strangers were bringing things up and down the stairs and banging around down there -- and, later, that they were not allowed down the stairs -- so they stayed upstairs and supervised my packing and sorting. 

We took a walk in the late afternoon when the painters left, then came home and ate the rest of the Ethiopian food from Sheba. My Voyager group watched "The Fight" which is not great but has lots of Janeway/Chakotay fun, then Cheryl told me that they were doing a Thor episode of Icons Unearthed: Marvel and we loved that so much that now we're catching up on the previous episodes. In the Enid A. Haupt Garden on Sunday:
