Welcome spring! Technically, Spring arrived 11:50 PM ESDST last night! I do believe that my allergy to Spring – pollens from trees, grasses – has also extended my homebound stint.

Thankful for modern Technology: Today I was online for two hour-long Zoom sessions: First, I joined the Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club and the discussion title du jour: Anne Bogel’s own new book: Don’t Overthink It. Anne, if you are unfamiliar with her, is the book club’s founder and host of the popular weekly podcast: What Should I Read Next ? Right on the heels of MMDBC, I joined my weekly Journal Club group; we have two sessions left and then a break til June.

In addition, my Thursday stitching group, in the interest of our health and welfare, chose to meet via Text rather than gather during these days of social distancing. So, all day, my phone/computer have been dinging, between them, family and friends…

Grateful: My email IN box ( I suspect yours too) has been filled by businesses, organizations, agencies, authors, artists, groups etc, offering opportunities for ways to stay involved and occupied. I find the smorgasbord of offerings for children especially inviting. Clearly, if one is online, there are many ways to stay connected in addition to becoming a couch-potato…

Inspired : Ten years ago, we were ending two back-to-back blizzards: unimaginable snowfall totals were racked up and down the eastern seaboard. This year, if we’ve had .5 of an inch of snow there’s a trick to it!. Both my photo repositories have sent me a message about those memories, today.

Fun: Dolly shared this text message:

Tomorrow is Dolly’s birthday. I’m sure the little boys will love singing Happy Birthday to Mommy as we all have for 34 years and counting. Have a grand day Dolly! Here’s to many more!

Cheers~
