Today, the ladies in my neighborhood had lunch for two 'birthday girls.' One was a long time friend who is 91. I had not met the 88 year old before today; she drove herself to the party. They blew out the candles and their spirit and enthusiasm was contagious. We all went away feeling that there is nothing we can't do at any age!
It's not a big thing, but after lunch, daughter and I decided that it was time to stop by the local nursery for a few tomato plants and some parsley, basil and dill. We're expecting 29 degrees tonight, but we'll plant them in the ground tomorrow and watch them with much enthusiasm. The trip home was fragrant and our spirits were boosted by thoughts of future possibilities.
