There’s a lot of hoo ha going on around here. “Operational excellence” it’s called. “Organizational simplification.” It’s all doublespeak, of course. And yet it has to be dealt with.
So I’m thinking a lot about civil law in Italy. How funny — I’m redoing a bunch of Italian books from the 20s.
M called last night. She’s finally made a sculpture she likes. It’s Baba Yaga out of wood.
N still doesn’t have her warm clothes, but she assures me and her grandmother that she’s okay because she has a down coat. I think I’ll send her a hat and mittens, and I’ll give her a sweater and the new socks I’m knitting for her birthday.
We’re settling in, I guess. Settling in for the long winter.
