So I’m excited about the upcoming two weekends, one (beginning tomorrow) to spend with Alice and her family visiting the Jalicses of Ray Township, Michigan, and getting some quilting advice for Emily’s quilt and seeing the birthday book made Amy made for her husband,my nephew Laci, and how all their children have been growing – Alena, Arianna called Lulu, Luka and Mia…………..And the next weekend Emily, Ingmar and Sofia will be coming to Ohio to celebrate Easter with us and I’ve already signed us up for the Stan Hywet members Easter Egg hunt. But in the meantime, let me engage in today, even as I anticipate the future. It’s an April showers sort of day, but the witch hazel outside this window is glowing gold with its spicy flowers, daffodils are blooming and pussy willows are almost over the top. Luckily I’ve already picked mine for this year. Today I’m heading out to visit Paul’s grave and see how the bulbs we planted last fall are coming along, and then to the library, water exercise and a hair cut, I hope. Then getting everything packed that I can because we are leaving very early tomorrow – five o’clock in the morning!
