We finally got a rain worthy of the name today. From God's sky into our lakes. I took pictures of sparrows (Song Sparrows, I think, but I am uncertain) in the rain.
I am following the World Womens' Chess Championship qualifier tournament. I am rooting for the American grandmaster, Irina Krush. I played some on-line blitz chess at the Free Internet Chess Server tonight. I did not play well. I play much better at slower time controls, but I still like blitz chess.
This weekend I want to get practical things done. I started this morning with laundry.
