I rose way before dawn to work on my children's book because the rest of the day will be crazy busy, and look what I was given as a reward for not hitting the snooze button...
A gift wrapped in misty blue, tied up with swirly pink ribbons.

That ended my writing session, of course. I threw on some clothes, grabbed my camera, and headed out for a morning walk with the puppies for the first time in days.
I hadn't gone far before three deer leaped out of the woods and disappeared on the other side of the road, one after another. No photos - I'm not fast enough. But it triggered this...
Full of grace they leap, white-tail-tutus sailing through the air. Ballerinas of the woods.

I walked down to the pond and creek, drawn by the sound of water playing and giggling.
I'm sure there's another small stone in there, but it hasn't come to me yet. Hmmm...playing, giggling...
Oh, well. I do have this one from a few days ago I forgot to post...
Raindrops tapdance on my umbrella.

A dear friend is coming to visit this weekend, and before she gets here I still have a lot of cleaning and shopping to do, as well as help TG get resettled before the new semester begins.
(I'll miss her. There's no way this house would have been even half-ready for visitors without her help! I've been in a spring-cleaning frenzy which is usually counterproductive to actual housecleaning!)
Between visitors, spring-cleaning, and writing, I'm sure it will be a few days before I get a chance to catch up with all of you. I hope you have a beautiful weekend, full of sweet! moments and lovely small stones. Savor each and every one, and if you get time, share them with me!
