That's the kids' playhouse this morning. Great place to write when it's warmer! The thing next to it is Kiki's toddler bed. We removed the bottom and filled it with top soil so she can grow flowers in it in summer.
And here are a couple of pictures I took at the Museum of Science over the holidays. Each has a special meaning for one of the two novels I'm working on. One is a slice of a 2000 year old Giant Sequoia showing tree rings dating back to the time of Julius Cesar (for KDD), and the second is a page from Bhaskara's Leelavati (for LS). I thought the grudging and dismissive write up (based on colonial era attitudes) about Bhaskara needs serious updating. I've been reading THE CREST OF THE PEACOCK by George Joseph, it's good to know that these biases are being re-examined.
