I love Coltsfoot.
One of the first wild plants to emerge in the spring... many people confuse it with dandelion...
And happily, we have some growing in our yard.

The birds are singing... the peepers are peeping at night... and I have to get new birdfeeders, as the bear did more damage than I had realized. But all is well... and I have quite the extensive list of things that I need to be doing.... time to make some coffee.

Things I am Grateful for Today:

-yard sales! We found 2 around town today while doing errands.
-old canning jars... with glass lids and wire clamps.... sorta like these. Nothing fancy, but I love to use them to store dried goods in.
-vintage dishes! I picked up a couple old plates and am really looking forward to making them into jewelry pieces.
-old friends. Today we stopped for lunch (look HERE. The stromboli is excellent)... and I ran into a friend that I haven't seen in forever. BTW... she still looks 20.
-wild birdsong as my alarm clock.
-peepers. There is nothing like walking outside at night and being serenaded by peepers.
-not having to work until tomorrow.
-the weather being warm enough to keep all the doors and windows open for awhile.
-"new" movies from Netflix. On tap for the next few days are: Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, and Forrest Gump.
