Today's count

violets from friends in the season of robins
Housebound for nearly two weeks.  A friend who brought in groceries. A friend who called to cheer me in my captivity.  A friend who resupplied my pile of murder mysteries from the library (I recommend Kerry Greenwood's Corrina Chapman.). A friend who, all unknowing, send me a postcard that arrived today and brightened the afternoon.  A friend who, learning of my state, came with supper and then washed all the dirty dishes in the house. The generosity of caring:  worth more than any gold.

Today's Count

My ball cap, worn for the first time this year.  Rubber boots, the snazzy kind.  My yellow spring jacket, open.  Seven melting snowpeople in the Bowl.  A snow mountaineer, climbing to the top of the snow mountain visible from my office window.  Ah snow mountains.  I walked along the tops of ranges on my way to school as a kid.  Puddles.

Unexpected answers

Just found a castle I have long been wondering the location of.  Saw it on the cover of a travel magazine once years ago, but there was no info as to where it was...Swallow’s nest, Yalta.  In the Crimea – guess where my search today started?  Information on Ukraine. Where the hotel displaying this picture – from which you will be able to sight see the castle – says it is. Or perhaps, Russia?
