     Happiness is three new adorable Tadpoads to add to my PoadTM collection!

     What a blessing, after so many nasty windy rainy days, to have such a beautiful weekend. Some sunlight, green grass everywhere, and not that windy on Sunday.

     It was a delight to finish my third short story for 2014. Got 'You Find What You Look For' wrapped up Saturday night.

     Sunday after church I drove over to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and got myself a year membership. Did some hiking along the trails, and enjoyed some early spring ephemerals as well as daffodils, hyacinths, forsythia and the earliest tulips. Fun with birds as well: got to see my first bluebird for the year, a close-up of an excited kingfisher, and four very big wild turkeys. Can't forget the hoard of calling frogs in the wetland areas!

     Got a real treat for lunch Monday. Carol the downstairs supervisor is a talented cook and knows I'm Puerto Rican (and craving fried plantains, which I haven't had in years). So she made a rice dish, a bean dish, and fried plantains for our lunch! It was fantastic!
