It is fun to live my week thinking about what I will celebrate on Saturday.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!
1. Spring break in California filled with sister time, sunshine, lemons, reading time and extra sleep time! We shopped for a new chair for my sister's desk, and watched "Frozen" (I hadn't seen it yet), "Call the Midwives," and "Catching Fire." We enjoyed glorious sunshine every day I was there and filled my hunger for Mexican food with frequent stops. I picked 3 buckets of lemons from my sister's tree. (Did you know that lemon trees have thorns?) I slept in most days, finished Wake Up Missing, and started Rooftoppers.
2. Blossoms everywhere!
The cherry trees at our public library,
this tree discovered on a Friday evening walk with husband,
and red rhododendrons on our lane (snapped this morning).
3. A new favorite anthology of poems!
Run to your nearest indie bookstore and pick up a copy of Firefly July, a delightful new anthology selected byPaul B. Janeczko, that takes us through the seasons with a year of very short poems. It is gorgeously illustrated by Melissa Sweet. As you meander through its pages, you'll recognize familiar poets and poems, but also discover new poems.
My favorite new discovery:
Uses for Fog
to conquer skyscrapers
to make a magic cloak
to become thistledown
