|The award for seeing the first robin of the season has returned where it belongs!|
Some may remember our family has had a contest for eons to see who can spy the first robins of the season. Although it was more fun when we had two kids at home, the competition remains.
This year I happened to be looking out the kitchen window and what would appear but a nice fat robin! The beany baby robin has returned to me. Victoria won it last year. No, really...
So... here is my world through the lens of a camera, taken a little at a time to keep from getting dizzy!
ReadingThe Heart of the Family*, which is the third in the Eliot Family series. It was what I needed at the time.
I just started reading Francine River's Leota's Garden*, which I had set aside last year. So many people whose opinion I highly regard have raved about it.
But I must say... it is about so much more than that. It is about falling in love with God all over again. This was one of the most remarkable stories I have ever watched. It is still available to watch online in the expanded 90 minute story (which I have now watched twice)... here.
It will be one of the best investments of your time you have ever taken. I don't know how long they keep the video up before you have to purchase the DVD.
How delightful it was to sip great coffee, nibble on an orange scone, and write in my journal. Lovely...
Someone had once asked me about the red-crystal goblets. I bought those two at Goodwill but I've seen them multiple times at the antique mall. I believe they are called Ruby Red Kings Crown or something similar.
I don't think you have seen this cup before. They are the cups and saucers that match my Everyday Lenox set of dishes that were my first really good dishes (except my wedding china). I bought eight places settings (my dining table can seat eight) during a more prosperous time in the mid-90s.
There was a whole lot of hospitality shown when these were on the table.
Open study window. Wind blowing in. Happy kitty.
