The Willows are on their way home! I bet the package will arrive this week. I promise to take a zillion photos of the book, the passport, and the weary travelers. Tasha Tudor loved the story, too. She illustrated one edition and I'll get that out and show you. We shall have a feast of The Wind in the Willows!
The first week in April is spring break. Yay! Bill and I are going to do some good garden prep then. I was wondering about YOUR garden. How do you plan it? I might have to buy some seeds very soon. I may buy some summer bulbs. I plan to plant cucumbers and pumpkins, herbs and sunflowers.
It's time to eat grapefruit again. Some people actually have them in their backyards! I have to buy them at the grocery. Red grapefruit tastes like sunshine.
We've had two days of blue sky around here. Betty, a nice lady who works at the grocery store, was so surprised when I told her that we hang laundry on the clothes line. This blue sky weather and clean wind dries everything so fast! Spring is teasing us! Five weeks of Lent and then . . . Easter! What a day! In the past I've made crosses. I might make some more and I just might knit a bunny or two. You?
Well, maybe you could dig out your dolly dishes and have a wee tea party. Maybe I should prepare a welcome home tea party for the Willows. They have been so many places and been treated to the very grandest tour. They'll be quite bored with the slow pace around here after they recover. Mags and I are thinking about the next Willows blog event. Mr. Badger will play a part.
I have a work day at school today and I will have quite a bit of time to putz around my room, tidying and moving things for a fresh spring look. I'll take photos when I finish.
I may have to watch a happy film while I work. Have you watched Because of Winn Dixie lately? It's a keeper.
Take care, you good souls. Really taste your tea today. Have a read. Don't look at the clock. Smell the earth. Fill the feeders. Live in the now and listen and watch for the unseen. Our moments are mysterious.
