What a lovely day. :)

It dawned relatively clear and not very windy this morning, so I made good on my promise to bring the nephews to the zoo. This was done with the explanation that I had no horse in this race: if they were unpleasant, I would happily turn around and take them home, because I can go to the zoo *any time I want*. But if they were charming and delightful, we would see all the animals they particularly wanted to see, and we would have lunch at the restaurant there, and there would be potential ice cream on our way home.

They were charming and delightful, saw the animals they wanted to, had lunch at the restaurant, and got ice cream on the way home. :) It was a very enjoyable outing!

Then I came home and finished the short story won by Bill Schafer at Subterranean Press in the Magick 4 Terri auction. He really *was* buying it as a gift for someone else, and she requested something set in the Old Races universe--and it turned out to be a piece that belongs in the forthcoming BABA YAGA'S DAUGHTER collection! So you'll be able to read it late next year. :)

In celebration of finishing the story, we ordered Indian food for dinner and watched the Doctor Who Christmas special, which we liked. And now, having had a very pleasant day, I'm going to bed so I can get up bright and early and get to work on the ElectriCity script...
