I played my first tennis game of the year. Awesome (except for a few sore muscles the next day). I think someone should video tape me. There are moments of sheer hilarity, moments when everyone would be totally amazed at my good returns, and lots of moments of what one should not do when playing tennis. I could be an entire instruction manual. Thank you Mother Nature for the perfect day to play. There is yard work I should be doing, but I wouldn’t have enjoyed it nearly as much!

I got in a hike with my littlest grandchild. The weather was beautiful, but the trail we chose was not ‘little one’ or stroller friendly. (Strollers don’t get along with rocks.) She tuckered out and had to be carried at the end. Still, hiking is good, fresh air is good, and being with my family is good. Can’t complain.

I’m waiting on pins and needles for the book cover art work to come.

The baby quilt I’ve been working on is now quilted and bound. I’m doing some finishing touches, but otherwise glad to have that job done. There is still some work to do on the album, but it’s all coming along.

We had a family get-together with bangers and mash to end a day that started with a parade, a long walk in the afternoon, and a game of corn hole. Those are my kind of days.

I love the truths, the secrets of life that a person learns along the way. Here is one of life’s riddles, if you will. Name three things that multiply by subtraction. You give them away, that’s subtraction, and you have more. Smiles. Love. Joy. The more you share them, the more you have. So, my advice is don’t be afraid to share. Have a good week everyone!
