Some Things That Make Me Happy.

Reading-- Tony Hillerman mystery novels.  A friend introduced me to Hillerman.  I read one book.  I checked out four more. I might be on a binge.

Looking for tickets--- another trip to visit children.

Enjoying my garden-- the monarch butterfly caterpillars are back!  This morning I found three caterpillars on one bush.  I'm sure that soon there will be more chomping away at the leaves.

Knitting-- an afghan for my daughter-in-law.  ZigZag Blanket pattern from pickles.no in four Arizona Desert colors.  No photos yet.  Also, I will be starting a pair of fingerless gloves for someone--a commission.

Learning-- I am taking an online class in Introductory Herbal Medicines.  I'm just in to my second video and already learning and enjoying it.  Also, I decided to get over my fear of crossword puzzles and have been doing the 'easy' puzzle in the local paper every day.  Fortunately, I'm married to the crossword king, so I can ask for hints when I am stuck.

Preparing--- for Good Friday and Easter.  Just focusing on prayers of Holy Week.

So many lovely things to be happy about! I especially resonate with learning - that's one that always makes me happy, too. As do visits with my girls (as you know!). Enjoy the rest of your week :)
