Here you see the last of the tulips. They were a good bunch, lasting for a full week before the petals finally started falling off. Once that began, it continued rather rapidly so they are history. No, I'm not reading this book but it is a favorite of mine from some years back. As I was looking in the bookshelves for a book to use in this photo, I saw the title, Winter Solstice, and it just seemed like the perfect prop for today. It is a good book, one of the companion books for The Shell Seekers and September, all by Rosamunde Pilcher. They're not new books but they're timeless books, excellent reading. Have you read them?
Today my friend Deanna, mentioned that Lent begins today and I was reminded of a favorite family story. When Krista was a teenager, her church youth group leader, in an effort to encourage more spirituality, suggested they 'give up' something for Lent. Our daughter gave up peas.
We did have a snow day today but glory be! The powers to be have already announced that school will open tomorrow. While Campbell and I had a delightful time these past few days, I'm happy for the kids to be back in school, my granddaughter in particular, because she loves school and always misses her friends when school is cancelled.
That's the news from Lake Wobegon our neck of the woods, where the women are strong and the men good looking ... let's not go there.
Instead, I'd love for you to go to the comments section below and let me know how Wednesday spent itself in your neck of the woods. No title required.
