This fellow has been loitering around the Castle in the wee hours of the morning lately. Today, he showed up in broad daylight for the first time, and I grabbed the camera for a quick shot in passing through the kitchen window. He’s big enough that I first mistook him for a coyote at a distance and in low light, but I’m pretty sure he’s a large-ish gray fox.

Everything’s fine here in Upper Cryogenica. My back issue resolved itself over the weekend, and I’ve been enjoying some extended time with the family, with the wife mostly home for the week. We’ve been doing stuff around the house, museum trips, and other stuff we never seem to get around to in a regular week. I haven’t done much online, and I’m almost a week behind on the writing work, but sometimes you just have to put on the brakes and slow things down a bit.
Tonight, we’re having friends over for dinner, and on Friday, we’re having a birthday party for Miss Lyra, who will be four years old on the 15th. On Monday, we’ll be back to the regular school/work/writing schedule, but until then, I’m letting things run in low gear for a bit longer around here. I’m just extremely glad not to be flat on my back on the bed in the office, like I was last year when my sciatica last made a visit.
