My husband and George were up at the house, and they were waving goodbye.
I thought it might be nice to stop and take photos along the way to school, to share the beauty of some of the early spring flowering trees I pass along the way.
Unfortunately, there was nowhere to pull over until I got to the school driveway where I could see the sparkles of the brick peeking through the trees. When I first saw this school, in 1996 when I brought my sons here for the first time, I was enchanted with the brick face of the building. I’ll have to show it to you up close one day. The clay bricks are interspersed with ones that actually shimmer in the light of the sun. I’m not sure what sort of process was used on them, but the glaze reflects the light and this is what I could see sparkling through the trees this morning, in the photo below.
I’m also fooling around with yet another watermark. I just can’t make up my mind, and really - I shouldn’t have to because I can have as many watermarks as I want.
I read something today that really hit home.
You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. —Buddha
I really needed to read this today. I’ve been feeling lately that I’m not good enough. Not a good enough friend, co-worker, sister, wife, mother, daughter-in-law, dog owner - you name it. And reading the quote made me realize that I’m not so bad.
And I don’t give myself enough credit for the good things.
Today, my husband took the covers off of the mini greenhouses in the garden, showing all the beautiful lettuce that’s been growing underneath. To the right of the lettuce is a row of peas.
I love peas.
I love these free actions from Nelly Nero, too. For several of the photos on this post, I used her Woodstock action. It’s really groovy, man.
Sometimes when I get stressed out at work, I think about what it would feel like to be home, taking a walk with my hiking poles, my trusty pup at my side.
And I feel better. Less stressed.
I want to say this bud’s for you here, but that would be so cliché, don’t you think?

Just finished watching Survivor, and now the Singing Survivor Show continues. Scotty is just downright fantastic. And Matty on Survivor has me shaking my head, wondering what the heck he was thinking.
Have a great Thursday, all. Spring is in the air here and I’m so glad of it.
