These flowers are not from my house, but from a house we visited recently. (More on that next week.) We’ve been busy around our own house, coloring eggs for Easter.

Tom and Huck are off of school this next week, and we are planning our annual adventure in the City (San Francisco) on Monday.

See you in the stacks!
