Day Twelve. And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

Here are some small things for which I am grateful:

1. It’s Friday.

2. It’s cool and clear today, and because I am in Los Angeles, that means it’s 63 degrees. I never have to dig my car out of the snow before I go to work. As a Bostonian by birth, I know that is truly a blessing.

3. The Blah Blahs are officially planning a vacation. Destination as yet unknown (planning has just barely begun).

4. I gave a progress report on my foster care project in a meeting today. It was very well-received – staff are excited about all the possibilities of this new program. I am too. Maybe my enthusiasm rubbed off. But my boss and boss’ boss are particularly pleased.

5. I went to the Farmer’s Market at lunch today. There are few things more scrumptious than a fresh strawberry.

There's another thing you can appreciate about LA: year-round farmer's markets. I miss that. (And my neighbor's avocado tree.)

I do love that about LA. Our neighbors have a lemon tree with branches stretching over the fence into our yard. They are happy to share. Anytime we need a lemon, we can just walk out the back door and grab one. Nice!
