I don't have much to say today. I'm doing my best to stay off Facebook -- at least where political content is concerned -- and just give my brain a rest. The students in my French class yesterday seemed completely unsurprised that the USA elected Trump. I guess after Brexit, they felt like it was inevitable. Apparently only we Trump-opposing Americans were fooling ourselves.
Our garden is in serious need of some routine maintenance, and the dog needs a trip to Hampstead Heath, and I would love to get out and take some photos. So that's likely to be my day.
Did I tell you our dog-sitter cancelled on us for Christmas break? It's not her fault; she got a job in Abu Dhabi. She's still going to stay with Olga for Thanksgiving but we need to find someone else for the two weeks we'll be away in December -- and since our previous dog boarder is also out of the picture, we'll have to find someone new. I have one option but the choices seem to be allowing Olga to go stay with her (expensive) or having her come to stay in our house (crazy expensive). So stay tuned.
