First fireflies of the year and butterflies abound;

New to me spinning wheel, this beauty is more than 45 years old and spins like a dream, what a lovely craft;

First Mountain Laurel for the season, saw one very early Rhododendron but couldn’t get to it to photograph, and the Flame Azaleas are stunning this year;

Junk finally cleared out of the sinkhole after 7 1/2 years fretting about it;

The health to walk an hour a day on the treadmill, getting back in shape; plus our daily walks with the pup on the local trails, and there are many to explore.

Retirement is grand, my hubby is awesome, my kids and grands are the best, I’m lovin’ life.
