And since Pashka always looked lovely in any color, here's one photo from my trip to D.C. last week where the cherry blossoms were just starting to open around the city. These were in the Bishop's herb garden at the National Cathedral.
Happy Monday, my bloggie friends!

See more beautiful sky views at Skywatch Friday.
My favorite moment of the day is:
early morning with my first cup of coffee and a big window to watch from
If I could say one thing to myself 20 years ago: Relax, you can do it.
The lesson I keep learning over and over:
I need to erase the tape running in my head...again.
What scares me the most: dying
No one know I: still get crushes
Unhealthiest meal: cream cheese by the block
Personal philosophy: open the door for the person behind me
I don't feel healthy when I: eat way too many sweets and pity
Proudest moment in my career: seeing my work on paper
My father always told me: you'll never amount to anything
My mother was right about: cats ARE wonderful
My mother was wrong about: just giving up
The movie I watch when I want to laugh is: Trains, Planes & Automobiles
I always feel saner when I: have walked in nature, talked to my daughters, done a crossword, listened to music, written something and looked up at the sky at least once
Home means: my nest
Whole living means: watching, listening, being grateful, petting an animal

So, I just flew in from D.C. and boy are my arms tired. [Sorry!] Last week I was there to be with Erica as she and her fellow med students all over the U.S. celebrated Match Day. She found out she matched as an emergency medicine resident at Drexel in Philadelphia for the next three years. Much celebrating ensued. Washington was awakening to spring after that brutal winter and the cherry blossoms were j.u.s.t. starting to open when I waved goodbye. More photos of them to come, but here are some random D.C. reds--including my toes and lucky shoes I wore. See more sublime to

A walk in the neighborhood to check on the snow melt unearthed this bridge--which I've posted photos of before--uncovered and sharing the lake's edge with new growth of bushes. Bright, blissful reds! See more at Ruby Tuesday.

That would be Caroline, a former next door neighbor who immediately went from acquaintance to friend. That also means I have been the recipient of numerous of her talents. Last week she brought me this gorgeous knitted blankie she calls my 'blue blanket' she'd made me for the long Minnesota winters. In the pic above you'll see pink and brown stripey things on top of a white container on the left --felted mittens! On the top right of the tall shelf is a round pink fabric pin cushion she sewed from scraps left over from her many sewing projects. Did I mention she is only a wee bit over 30, so, I have someone to call my daughter while my own are far away?
Appreciation is a wonderful thing; it makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well. --Voltaire
