Bought a push lawnmower today (as opposed to an electric one) and got to beating the lawn and the weeds back in the garden. Obstacles came in the way of a million ladybirds, most of whom I tried to move out of the way. I don't *think* I killed any of them.

Mornings have been cold (less than 10 degrees), so to avoid putting the heating on, I sit in bed for an hour. Then it was outside for the daily stroll around the back yard - things are growing, and I think it must be mating season for the birds, judging by the racket they're making. Good times.

I was sat in the bathroom, attempting to trim my hair (less disastrous than I expected), when I heard the neighbourhood hawks right outside. Grabbed my camera, and finally took a clear enough picture of one them to identify them as Red Shouldered Hawks. If only I had a telescopic lens!
