Yesterday I was delighted by...

     A great service at my parents' church.

     My parents and I went to my brother and sister-in-law's place to celebrate Daniel's first birthday. My sister-in-law told the enthralling story of her recent jury duty service--she got to be on a criminal case a couple weeks back, was head juror, and what a story it was! Too bad she has to wait 60 or 90 days before selling movie rights. ;)

     I spotted two magpies on the way back to my parents' house. This was special, as California has the only population of Pica nuttalli in the world, and that population is being decimated by West Nile Virus. Sacramento used to be full of magpies, now it's a treat to see any at all.

     Poring over maps yesterday for our bird-watching outing today, I came across a little place called Princeton, and right next to it, a place called Princeton Ferry. That delighted me, as they both make an appearance in my first Geren book!
