Things I am thinking about today...
- First the snow melted, then we woke up yesterday, to fresh snow. Still, there are signs of spring around here and one of the first, is always the sight of a pretty purple crocus pushing through the ground in the flower bed near my front porch. The sight of something green is welcome and needed, after a long and snowy winter. Next, will be the tulips and daffodils and I can't wait to see the new bulbs I planted in the fall, finally bloom.
- I am in the middle of reading The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin. It is the story of Charles Lindbergh and his wife Anne Morrow Lindbergh. It is a fictional account of their marriage, and how they met during her father's tenure as the Ambassador of Mexico in the 1920's. The style is reminiscent of The Paris Wife, which I also enjoyed.
- The Bachelor finale was fun to watch, but I am still not feeling that the future looks good for this couple. Especially since Sean is now doing Dancing with the Stars. I think, the longer they try to remain in the limelight, the less chance it will work out. They needed to go to Dallas and live a normal life. And by the way, Lindsay taking her high heels off, to walk out, was my favorite moment of the show, ever :-)
- Later today, I will be dropping off, at The Salvation Army, a trunk full of bags from my 40 Bags in 40 Days challenge. I now have filled a total of 17 bags; donated or trash. The real work starts next week when I tackle the basement.
Happy Thursday! I am off to morning mass today, to hear what our parish priest has to say about our new pope. Watching it live was very exciting, from the white smoke, to the crowds in the square.
