Who ever said German's don't have a sense of humor? (Besides every country within a few weeks march I mean.)

Yes German is really different.  I saw in a brochure that Whale Watching is called Val Fartin. I thought that was so funny that I laughed my head off.

OK.

I made "the sandwich" with untoasted Jewish Ryed, turkey, avocado, mayo, thick sliced apple smoked bacon, lettuce and a little apricot jam on the side of bread with lettuce.

Along with the salad it was outstanding.

No pumpernickel at all; )

Hearing my daughter come crashing into my home office while I am working - telling me she has attained her dream of being included in the vocal ensamble in her school (the elight, elight of singers in the chorus).

She has been working so very hard for this -- for months.

SHE GOT IT!!!!!!

I am so happy for her  :D :D :D.

Peace

Service.

Starting a martial arts program for the community (that fell into my lap perfectly.)  3 hours today, and I had a program, a schedule, and organization in place.

The space.  The mats.  The sound system.  The students.  The very real possibility that this will grow into a greater community outreach fundraising piece is very exciting. 

Explaining to my children they'll be participating (it's a lot of hours, several days a week,) and they didn't groan, or moan.  They were seated in the sunshine, on a perfectly breezy, perfectly spring time day, and they embraced it!  Then we played ball, and laughed, and were grateful for the day, each other, and our lives.  (My oldest taught me a new yoga position!  My youngest chased ducks: )

My children are familiar enough with my workouts it's anticipated they'll grow quickly into assistant teaching positions.  They have some formal martial arts training, and that will help so much in my non tradition classroom, which doesn't require they bow in or out, but it does require they be attentive, and focused.  I think the transition to my class style will be easy, fun and mostly positive.

This is gonna be great!

I like hearing about happy daughters.

And I like picking daffodils in my back woods, seeing it snow the next day, and the morning after than going out and picking a whole bunch more -- they're a little confused but gorgeous survivors. I like knowing my parents planted them 47 years ago and they've spread and are still producing. Dots of sunshine in the woods.

I come home to a blast of scent. It also reminds me I will be able to create joy just with some flowers, wherever I wind up moving.

I like my new orthotic flip-flops that don't look like "little old lady" shoes. I've been able to wear 'em on the days where it's been spring here (before it flips back to winter)... and they are helping my ankle heal... so I won't have as much pain working outside, working out inside, and burning more calories than I take in... so I can keep healing other things, too.

I like moving things around - like putting my dishdrainer on the other side of the sink and trying it out to see how I like it.

I like waking up in the morning, and seeing the funny cartoon hubs left for me to find, first thing - "kitty treadmills" - 3 toilet paper rolls and kitties pulling it off... as my feral kitty starts her workout on the real one!!

I WISH I had a real garden because I LOVE....

Primroses. All of the colors. All with the bright yellow center, the purple, pinks, pale yellows, whites, reds, oranges.
The traditional flat leaf primroses but also the ones with the ruffled blossoms.

The baby herb plants for starting in a garden, the baby cilantros, baby thymes, parsley, sage, oregano.

The bulbs of crocus shoots and daffodils and hyacinths and tulips. All of these I love them and I want to take them home and plant two hundred of them.  :(

There is even a local garden store that has baby ducklings and chickens.

My 17 year old S getting home about an hour or so ago from Las Vegas where he played in a hockey tournament.  Many of his team mates were from Winnipeg, Canada.  He is tired, jet lagged and I think I heard a Canadian accent (lol).  He has a hat with his name and after the name is.....eh!  He loves his Canadian team mates!!!

By the way.....Co-ed team.....Champions!!

That perfect cup'a joe.

A not too sweet something to go with it.

Sunny spring mornings, with birds singing, breeze blowing....

the birds are everywhere!  It's like the Robins are trying to shake the bushes loose: )
