Summary: Spent an hour relaxing in the sunlight. While out there, a murder of vrows started to massing. Unfortunately, I'm an idiot and got the camera after they left, but at least I took the picture of the pipe and tea.

Thursday afternoon. Sun, pipesmoke, crows, and tea...

Spent an hour or so outside this afternoon, just relaxing. Had my little Tsuge pipe with Peter Stokkebye's Proper English blend [not pictured], and a flask of tea (mix of strong gunpowder green and a lighter black tea to cut it with a litte sugar). Was thinking about a game—post hopefully later tonight on that—and then crows started gathering. First one, cawing. Then another. Finally, about half a dozen more showed up. They were on the roof across from me. Watching me and my cat. Silent except the first one. Finally, a fair-sized murder a brewing, they flew first into the trees over to the left and then across the courtyard to the right. At THIS moment, I thought about taking a picture. Too late.

I thought about reading some M.R. James, which seems appropriate. No time now, will hit up his 1911 More Ghost Stories later tonight. I have kind of sworn off of short stories, but I'd say this is exception worthy. Anyone else up for some James?
