As the birthday gift purchases from Amazon roll in, I read yesterday the book The World of Jack Aubrey by David Miller, an illustrated coffee table book detailing a number of things that come up in Patrick O'Brian's sea stories. Not bad if you have little knowledge of nautical affairs.
I had another big day at work, yesterday, and got home rather late. However, it wasn't nearly as difficult a day as Monday had been, so that helped. We'll see how today goes.
