Subject: QOTD for Friday, March10, 2017 The following quote is taken from Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon, Ch.13. Morning Air Awash With Angels, Copyright 2014 by Diana Gabaldon All Rights Reserved.

Sorry to be late. Im sick and a bit blurry.

Jenny [came] back with Ephedra tincture – and a hammer in the pocket of her apron and three stout laths under her arm. She handed me the cup without comment and proceeded to nail the laths over the window, in a surprisingly brisk and competent manner.
Hal sipped his Ephedra slowly, watching Jenny with bemusement.
“Why is she doing that?” he asked, though not as if he cared particularly what the answer was.
“Hurricanes, Your Grace, “ she said with a straight face, and zipped out to return the hammer to the carpenters, whose cheerful banging sounded like a battalion of woodpeckers attacking the house.
“Oh, “ Hal said. He was glancing vaguely round the room, possibly in search of his breeches, which Mrs. Figg had thoughtfully taken away and hidden in the cookhouse.
