26 February

I have inherited a new desk 

from my landlord who died this past autumn

He was what we affectionately refer to as

"a Character"

and I am absolutely enamored
of sitting at this beautiful desk at the window 
and watching the world go by


Hyacinths are in at the local market.

I have one sitting on the new desk and it smells like heaven


I went to lunch with my daughter Bonnie yesterday

at the Peddler's Daughter

it's sort of an Irish Pub in Haverhill, MA

we listened to Irish music 

and ate fish n chips wrapped in newspaper

mine was in the obituaries

which reminded me of my papa

who read the obits daily and called them the Irish funnies.


spring comes foggy and wet to our rather tiny island

nothing  but grey skies


My sister got engaged to a great guy!!
