The lilacs are in bloom, my favorites. The delicate little flowers and wonderful scent are like therapy.
My daughter's happiness. She made dean's list again, is happy to be home eating real food instead of dorm food, has her car to drive and a whole large kitchen to cook in, complete with dishwasher. I want to be her when I grow up.
The way the dog tries to bury his extra food under the throw rug makes me laugh.
A marathon day of seeing paintings, jewelry, clothing, sculpture, fabric art and handcrafted furniture always leaves me feeling exhausted and inspired with at least one small idea I can actually put into practice.
Standing on the beach, no matter what the weather. It is just where I am supposed to be - the sound of the waves soothes me and seeing the water stretch all the way to the horizon makes me feel like there's still room on the earth to breathe.
Hanging with my best friend, her daughter and my daughter. We are all enough alike to get along well, and enough different to keep us interested and laughing.
The biggest kitten weighs about 16 pounds. He was so silly today - I was trying to weed the flower bed and he was between my legs, under my bottom, up on my back, pawing at the hand trowel and generally being annoying, in a cute and funny way.
My friend runs an organic dairy herd and emailed pictures of the new calf today. It's a girl!
Looking into the eyes of my beautiful friend as we sang together on the court house steps. Her joy in singing radiates from her.
All the trees are dressed in the lightest of green lacy leaves and showing the most delicate outlines of their shapes.
Mom found a bird's egg in the middle of a garden path, no tree or nest or bird nearby. It is tan with brown spots and the size of a walnut. I put it in the bird's nest that we found in the Christmas tree last December.
The ornamental trees are bursting with blossoms! Magnolia, tulip trees, weeping cherry and redbuds, full and fluffy in pink and white.
