… The first glimpse of spring on the maples!
The weather here has been divine – and coming from me, that’s saying a lot.
… Being involved a bit in a Widow’s Banquet our church did for ladies in the community.
These roses made me nostalgic for my former days at a florist shop…
… making some lace scarves. I just love the feminine lace & ruffles this spring!
… Finding strawberries on sale – fresh from Florida! – for seventy-five cents a quart.
I made 75 chocolate covered strawberries for the Widow’s Banquet, a few for ourselves, and made our year’s supply of strawberry jam!
… Friday night bike rides through the neighborhood. Chasing down an ice-cream truck we heard somewhere off in the distance, blaring “Yankee Doodle” until the poor driver must go batty, and finding the “truck” was actually a hippie van with ice cream pictures on the outside and a huge horn in the front. To say I found this amusing it putting it very lightly.
… The anticipation of tomorrow.
I’m going to be gone for a little while, because…
I get to spend an entire week with some of my favorite people in the world…
My three beautiful sisters and mother and grandmother [and my two daughters]!
I live almost a thousand miles away from all of them, and rarely am able to spend more than just a lunch or breakfast with all of us together. So to be able to together for a week, in the sun, with all of them, is just beyond exciting.
My heart beats wildly just thinking about this!
Florida, here we come!
My sisters, my best friends.
And after that high excitement, I’ll be back.
