Mom e-mailed me this picture today, captioned "Patience and Wisdom."
I'm not sure our Maggie would sit so quietly. Our neighborhood is filled with skunks. I didn't see or smell much of them this past winter, but in the last week or so they've made their presence known. I always make sure our back porch light is on before stepping away from the door. Last fall, I practically stepped on one as I left the house--that would not have been good.
Nothing much to report in the way of home improvement projects this weekend--I took advantage of the terrific weather and spent about six hours puttering in the garden and cleaning it of winter debris. I still have a long, long way to go on that.
