Easter dinner with family members here was very nice. Now I'm sitting at the computer watching birds outside my window at the feeder and birdbath. Cardinals, Tufted Titmouse, house finches, goldfinches, and robins. Life is good.
If the ten-day forecast is right, Cliff and I may do some long-distance motorcycle riding next weekend. But of course, we all know how inaccurate the ten-day forecast can be.
I have two local blogging friends, a mother and her daughter, whom I've invited to come and hunt morel mushrooms on my place. Hey, all the neighbors help themselves; why not give some people I like an invitation, and my approval? I have warned them about the hills and deep valleys, but I imagine they're still going to be surprised. I'll let you know. I will be sure to get my picture with them.
In less than three weeks, my friend Joanna is coming to visit. Several years ago, I spent a few days at her home near Washington, DC, and got to see some Smithsonian exhibits and other historic sites.
Last time she visited here, she talked me into getting Cliff to the doctor for what he and I assumed was heartburn. Just as Joanna thought, it wasn't heartburn: it was angina. And less than a week after her visit, Cliff was having open heart surgery. We will be eternally grateful; we believe God sent her here at that time.
Anyhow, this month holds promise. So do the months ahead. It could be an interesting and enjoyable summer.
