Five things make a post

The sun is shining, a light wind is blowing and keeping the heat down, and Mooncat is helping me with everything I do by sitting on it, patting things and generally being underfoot.

Outside, the building work in entering its final phase (I hope). And our primroses have survived the experience, including being buried for a while under three feet of soil (the marquis dug them out and they have responded wonderfully).

Our rhubarb, in the front garden, is flourishing: fresh rhubarb pie is on the menu for the very near future.

Regular gym visits and work with fixed weights are keeping my shoulders mostly mobile and relatively pain-free.

And here is the extraordinary story of Kazimierz Piechowski and his friends, who escaped from Auschwitz.

Kitties can be so helpful sometimes, can't they?

What does rhubarb taste like?

It's quite sharp -- in some ways its similar to blackcurrant or gooseberries, but the texture is chewier. It's one of those love/hate things, I find. Personally, I love it, but many of my friends find it much too sour.

What a helpful kitty! Gus thinks she deserves many treats and scritches for being so good and helpful.

And oh my goodness, fresh rhubarb pie! In the near future! So jealous. My mom's rhubarb is a tiny little sprout, barely above the earth. Long ways from rhubarb pie here...

Our rhubarb is happy, too. Since gluten-free pie crust is a pain to make, I'll do a crisp rolled-oat and brown sugar topping.

That sounds good, too.

Where would we be without our felines to keep us on the straight and narrow. Watch out soon your Mooncat will be demanding a pay raise or a performance bonus.

I too love rhubarb. It's too early yet for it here but..............soon. It grows like a bloody weed once it comes up.
