Here and There

Yesterday was one of those ordinary days that was so good it kept me smiling all day long. There wasn't any big occasion connected with the day (unlike Monday, when we celebrated our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary) but it felt like every time I turned around there was something pleasant on our path.

Of course, I took a couple of photos to share the day with you.

We stopped in the local Agway to pick up bushel baskets. Last week we bought starter potatoes, which I plan to put in the ground this weekend, so the bushel baskets are a necessity. Why? Because I've got a plan for them that goes hand in hand with the starter potatoes. More on that another time. Now, I want to show you what we saw in the Agway.

Aren't they adorable?
It was sooo hard not to bring them home with us.

Look at these darling chicks!
So soft and fluffy!
I wanted these too but
we left them in the store.

I took a little walk when we got home.
Every day there are new crocuses to admire.
The daffodils are plumping up, so they'll
be along any time now.

We've got a pair of ducks on our pond.
I love watching them swim around.
So peaceful, and so pretty.
Sorry the photo isn't better.
They're a bit skittish so I don't get
too close.

So, you see, yesterday wasn't a red-letter day but it was wonderfully pleasant from beginning to end.

I hope your day was a goodie, too. And I hope you're getting set to enjoy the weekend!

Agway is full of evil temptations... lol...

I love your crocus! Mine would look like that if the voles hadn't made salad out of them. *sigh*

I'll live vicariously through you.
