May we never forget the crippled, wind-beaten trees, how they, too, bud, green and bloom. May we, too, take courage to bloom where we are planted.

1. It was pretty and warm when I got up this morning, even though the wind was a little blustery. I vowed to wait until the first of May to plant my garden but I caved in after I saw the weather forecast for the week – high 50s-low 60s every day, and no colder than 45 deg at night.
2. I planted my two little tomato plants, and put the seeds for the squash, green beans, and herbs in the ground. (Then the wind came up strong, but I think the tomatoes will recover).
And I got all my steps in walking back and forth with the tomato cages, and seeds, and plants.
3. I fixed little steaks, asparagus, and red skinned potatoes for lunch. I think that’s all we have in the freezer in the way of meat, except for some sausages, bratwurst, and wienies. We’re headed for the commissary on Wednesday, so that will work out just fine.
4. The laundry is all washed, dried, folded and hung up.
5. We have the “traveling Happy Hour” again this week, followed by a Zoom call for the Gazebo Group. I don’t know whether I can keep up with all the stuff on my calendar!
How about you? What made you happy today?
