Happy Earth Day 2023
Daily writing prompt: April 17, 2023
Over the years, we have enjoyed many good meals at restaurants in our area. Grateful for all. And I like being home now, and seeing the seasons in the yard when we share meals. Sometimes we bring good meals home from local places. I worked at a bakery in high school, and a restaurant in college. And I enjoyed shopping for my mother and preparing meals at her home during what I call “the caregiving years.”
And I will be watching for butterflies and bees in our gardens.
Haiku for Earth Day
and easy to achieve
of an open window
near the kitchen windows
to care for and see
flowers and trees

Books by Jan Karon
This Holy Week, I plan to read from Jan Karon’s book, Bathed In Prayer: Father Tim’s Prayers, Sermons, and Reflections from the Mitford Series (Author Copyright 2018; G.P. Putnam’s Sons, New York).
You can learn more about Jan’s books at Jan Karon’s Mitford site.
Yesterday, I wrote about The Mitford Museum and then spent more time learning about all their work. And more to learn!
