Cherry blossoms, special lady and delightful read

Photo by Jesse Milton

- The cherry trees, so incredibly beautiful this year, now shedding their blossoms because of all the rain the last few days. Lawns and cars are covered in the blossoms, looking like snow.

- Sally's 80th birthday party was well-attended and a highlight was the crowd singing the Georgia Tech "Ramblin' Wreck" fight song in her honor. She is a retired history professor and die-hard Jackets fan.

- Book club tonight - remembering I was supposed to read a Newbery medal winning book (we have an children's educator among our group,) I hurriedly picked up "Sarah, Plain and Tall" by Patricia MacLachlan. It was a quick half hour read, but wonderfully descriptive of a family living on the prairie in need of a wife and mother to care for them. Sarah, answering an ad, comes from her beloved Maine. The children are fearful that she is so homesick she will leave to go back, but though she misses her home, she tells them, "the truth of it is I would miss you more."
