Such a beautiful day! Impossibly! I walked for a while, to get some brushes and things for Saturday, and lost count of all the cats conspiratorially slinking from one sun spot to another.
Also I saw a two men wheeling a full coffin along the street and a dead puppy in the canal, but still the day is beautiful (what a picture I'm painting). This weather gift, given on a fraught day in other respects, makes me wish I could rewind the whole summer and spend it down in Cornwall. Or Italy.
