Hope and Light

This week.
This week has been a doozy and I am still attempting to process much of it.
The good has been good, though.
LPP is coming home for Easter and will celebrate her birthday a bit early with us.
That means the kitchen has been in high gear. 
As have table setting projects.

The weather has been perfect for gardening and we have accomplished that as well.
I even had a helper while SPF was in school last week.
He is a masterful egg collector as well.
The seeds that we planted have yet to sprout, but the taters are looking good and we have more artichokes than Carter has pills.
Do people even say that anymore?
In asking that question, I learned where the saying came from. 
The early 1900's from an over the counter liver pill that apparently was quite popular and cured whatever ailed your liver.
Who knew?

The irises and roses are showing their gratitude for a wet winter with more blossoms than in recent memory.

  I picked the first flower from my Father in Law's rose bush last week.

Today, it is in full bloom.
It is a good reminder.

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.
