What a treat the cool weather has been lately!

     Slept marvelously long and deliciously cool with a sleeping pill last night; I think my place got down to 58 F/14 C. What a blessing!

     Thanks to a cool day as well, I actually had the energy to plunge into a little purging of my walk-in closet, and some cleaning of my atrocious sidewalk mess (though the wind kept me from finishing that job). Got months to get my apartment presentable for my mom's visit, but it's best to start early. =)

     It's been too long since I had photos here--and this wonderful coolness has made the beautiful spring blossoms last longer than on too many years when heat or storms shred them quickly. My walks to and from the bus stop have been exquisite of late.

So here's a shot of some of the delicious row of lilacs outside my side door.

And here's a close-up. I wish I could upload the wonderful scent as well!

Glad you enjoyed the photos! It has been a real treat this spring seeing so many for so long.

I'd been planning to do a purge of clutter already, but a couple weeks back our paster had a good sermon on being like the ant in Proverbs, so I made a (still-growing) sheet of everything I want to do before you come so I can whittle away at it here and there. I'm sure there'll still be some frantic last-minute things too!
