Weekend delights:

     Got out to see 'Thor' Saturday morning and quite enjoyed it. Of course I'm biased, because I love the Norse mythology and it was great to see Odin and even a fleeting glimpse of Sleipnir! (And Heimdall was gorgeous!)

     My walk this weekend was in Lebanon Hills Regional Park. Walked for two hours but don't know how many miles I did because their maps didn't have trail distances and I don't feel like spending 45 minutes with a ruler working it out. But it was a treat to have such a cool, bright, breezy morning in the fullness of spring. Got to see Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Yellow Warbler, and a couple American Redstarts, among others...but no bluebirds or Indigo Buntings so my mom need not feel envious!

     It was a treat to listen to Saint-Saëns Symphony no 3 ('Organ Symphony') while walking, a real treat. I can only hope my own work gives someone half as much delight as Saint-Saëns does to me, 125 years later. I love art!

     Today started working through a series of online Vue tutorials I found out through their forum, best of all, they're free! Will help get me up to speed on the lots of new/changed features between Vue 6 and Vue 9.

     Still chugging along with book 5 editing and glad to be past the halfway point...and get to enjoy my favorite ch 18/19 grouping in my verbal read-through today.

So glad you finally got some nice spring weather for your walk at the park.
That is a nice park.

Are you thinking of going to the Wisconsin park where we saw the indigo
Glad to hear about your progress with editing.

Yes, the weather has been lovely lately, at last!

No, I'm not planning to go to Eau Galle because I don't want to pay for entrance or all the gas to drive there and I don't think I can get 5+ miles of walking there without repeating trails. It'll be getting too warm for walking at parks soon.

Hoping I can get book 5 printed out around Memorial Day weekend!
