Last-days-of-being-in-my-30s bright spots:
A treat from my boss Thursday--she gave me a Key Lime flavored half bundt cake she picked up at a bakery, because she remembered the goodies I brought back from Florida and how I love that flavor. Very sweet of her (as is the cake)!
Wonderful to have the downtown Farmers Market underway for the season. There wasn't much the first week so I just grabbed some asparagus, but this past Thursday I got fresh broccoli and sugar snap peas, YUM!
Delighted that the first delphinium blossoms are opening up in my garden, and I'll get to see them a little before my trip. Nice timing, too!
33% through pass 5!
While driving to the Red Cross today, I was thrilled to spot two huge catalpa trees. That's the one thing I've really missed since I moved--Newport had lots of catalpas in places, and they always bloom right around my birthday. So it was a delight to see these, in my own suburb, just covered in flowers! =D
And yes, my iron level was high enough, and though my vein gave some trouble they got it working, and I succeeded with a platelet donation today. Very happy about that!
