to greet my sister, Molly
knocked this blossom down
and I tried to save
it using this juice bottle
by the microwave

1. The rain has stopped and the sun is shining ... it's a beautiful day at the beach here in Southern California ... SPRING has sprung in my front yard already with Nasturtiums, Irises, and Crocus in bloom and my roses coming back already!
2. My neighbor brought me a Veteran's Honor rose bush for my yard on Friday ... a gift from her father who has raised roses for a long time. I'm trying to decide just where I want to plant it, but the soil's way too wet right now so it's sitting on my front patio. What a lovely birthday gift and delightful addition to my garden!
4. Unfortunately, that same Dell 1720 (running Vista) continues to crash to a Blue Screen periodically when I try to visit blogs ... so I'm still behind ... trying to catch up as I'm able. Guess I'll be on the phone with Dell again next week trying to figure out a fix with tech support.
5. My heart goes out to all those in Chile affected by the recent massive earthquake and my prayers are with survivors coping with the aftermath. It's humbling to consider the power of nature to destroy ... especially knowing just how many faults run under the place I reside here in Southern California near the beach.
