I've been ill, which accounts for the sparse blogging over the last two weeks. I'm back on my feet now.
In more interesting news, the Guy's sister had a baby boy a week ago. When we went to visit them, the Guy's mother placed the baby on my lap. And I looked in wonder at the tiny fragile being staring up at me intently, looking for all in the world like a wise old elf rather than a helpless new infant. He had lovely long eyes, the tiniest fingernails, crumpled ears, and wiry hair that hung straight down his head.
Welcome to the world, Elf!
