Worked. Then spent an hour on a Zoom call with the three brothers I share a mother with, wishing "Happy Birthday" to the next-to-youngest, who turned 62 today. Now watching a "Brokenwood" with Mrs. S and daughter no. 2.

The pubs are open so the octogenarians are insisting that is where they will celebrate a birthday next week.

Part of my garden fence has been pulled down!

Because it was damaged in storms in February. Now my builder neighbour has managed to secure supplies and start work. Removing the old damaged posts is the hard part ... jackhammer operation while I am on conference calls ... acceptable. Other participants have 9 month old babies (even more acceptable) and network dropouts (not acceptable but not much they can do about it).

Well, have begun the process of trying to sell my house. Ex-Mrs. KA, always on the lookout for any nickel that isn't nailed to the floor, rejected my idea of going straight to a short sale because she think this place is worth market value. But in truth, there ain't no way this place comes even close to paying off what we're in hock to. This was the assessment of three different realtors who looked at the place last summer, and after a potential buyer brought in their own home inspector over the weekend, we can add Right Choice Home Inspections to that list. The place failed the inspection spectacularly. So now we are back at looking at working out a short sale...

When the ex found out I am not paying the mortgage anymore (for one I need to find a new place and I need to hire movers and last I checked none of that is free), she responded with a several paragraph-long screed about right and wrong. Which I refused to read and replied, "A lecture in ethics from someone with none."

One less thing connecting us after this..

This morning, I prepared for a webinar I was helping to present on third-party legal opinions. After lunch, I logged into a webinar about what's going to happen at the end of next year, when LIBOR stops being quoted.

Then I sat around wating for documents on the deal I've been working on. They never came in.

Watched another "Brokenwood" and "Frankie Drake" with Mrs. S and daughter.

Mrs. S spent most of her morning and early afternoon finishing up The Doomsday Book, by Connie Willis. I should probably read it, again. Mrs. S says it has certain relevancy to the current pandemic.

It's a great book, and yes when I first read it, I thought it might be a stretch, but now I think it's surprisingly realistic. Recently read "To Say Nothing of the Dog", which was also great, but in a different way.

We are opening up little by little, and Finns are drawing a sigh of relief that the oppressive instructions to stay 6 feet apart are over and we can go back to staying 15 feet apart as usual.

My co-worker has climbed onto my keyboard to get at the nesting bird. Or at least inspect it more closely.
The first egg has hatched! Little fuzzy blob that move itself but not in any coherent way yet.

The other two eggs (there were 3 in all, laid a few days apart) are still eggs.

Meanwhile the American robins I've been following daily updates on (via someone's security camera) are nearly ready to leave the nest.
