March Wrap-Up

This month has been pretty uneventful. I was super tired the whole time (which isn’t the first time), and didn’t blog as much as I should have. At least I read more than I usually do.

Our ride through the early-morning streets as a cold one, and so was the body at the end of it. Mrs. Beaumont lay on her back at the feet of a plush divan when we arrive, the intricate swirls and rosettes of a Persian carpet splaying out beneath her.
