the next nine weeks

Spring break is over and the final nine weeks of the school year begin today with the first bell. This school year passed by at lightening speed. My youngest reminded me at dinner last night that next year is his final year at the elementary school. And so it goes.

We had a lovely weekend and were even able to sit outside and enjoy dinner last night. The weather was perfect and after wiping down the table and chairs, I convinced everyone to join me on the patio. Food just tastes better outside! Especially when it is 72 and sunny with a slight breeze and no bugs to speak of....

My birthday tree will be delivered and planted on Tuesday; pictures to follow of my redbud.

I'm almost finished with the second "King Raven" book, "Scarlet" and received a call yesterday from the library that the third book is in now. Today when I stock the bookstore I will check that one out as well.

Happy Monday!

Time passes a warp speed these days. Agreed! The redbud is a lovely gift that you'll enjoy over and over again. My oldest granddaughter used to collect the seed pods in the fall, calling it the Bean Tree.
