It's all misty outside.  With that damp feel and baseline chill, It feels and smells like an English spring or summer day, but less fragrant than it can be in England.  Not enough flowering plants growing near me.  The birds are very much in evidence, though.  Lots of birdsong.

I think American houses are more sealed off than English ones.  I always felt the damp and chill indoors in England, rarely in America.  But I lead a more affluent life in America than I did in England, in younger homes:  maybe that's part of it.

It's not a bad chill, it's just a foreign chill.  It's the mist.

By the time you read this, I hope to be caught up on Doctor Who, but don't immediately spoil me.  F. is arriving tomorrow evening so I have housekeeping to do: desks to clear, a fridge to clean, food to buy.

You need to come visit. This house is from 1909 with zero insulation. The chill is in evidence many a morning!

I hope your visit is a good one!
