The Friday Five Good Things. A Day Late

Teapots, MFA Boston, MA
Five good things that happened this week.

1. I saw my first robin in the backyard. Spring is finally here!

2. Had a wonderful Sunday. Had  Easter egg bread for breakfast. Made a roast lamb. Himself made roast sweet potatoes, new potatoes, and carrots with walnuts in a honey glaze. I made a lemon cloud pie. We ate jelly beans, took a nap, and watched Ben Hur

3. Had an appointment. The day was rainy, cold, and raw. I didn't want to leave the house. And then the appointment was cancelled.

4. Because of the holiday baking, I didn't get a chance to collect Prissy's trash or have tea with her. Her son-in-law dropped the trash by the mailboxes and Himself went to collect it. On Tues, I spent the better part of the afternoon with her. Sipping tea and swapping gossip.

5. I took my Thursday afternoon calligraphy class on a field trip for the last day of class. We visited the Prints Department. The curator brought out several, beautiful, illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages. As a special treat, she also had a book from Renaissance Germany about swordsmanship. Not only is it exciting to see these eye candy treasures, but also because many of these pieces haven't been viewed in decades.

How was your week?
