Our hyacinth got pummeled by the rainstorm last night, so it's taking a rest.

I'm not really a morning person, so I don't usually get to see that occur in the early hours. Today being Easter, however, Eric and I went to a sunrise service, and afterwards, I noticed the dew for the first time this spring.

Eric went to an estate auction yesterday, and he came home with a $5 prize--a game called Electric Baseball.
The "baseballs" are magnets that get thrown against a piece of metal that you hit with a plastic "bat," and if you get a hit, you flip a switch that makes the entire board vibrate, and the runners go sliding around this track to the bases.
It's good in theory, but it's nigh unto impossible to hit the "baseballs" past the pitching mound.

A nice spring evening called for a walk to Brick Pond. It was pretty soggy from the rain earlier this week, so I didn't get onto the path to go around the whole pond. The birds were singing, though, and the reflections on the water were fantastic. Since there were no leaves on the shrubs and trees, I got to notice the beauty in the chaos of the branches.

We came home from seeing the play Master Class (about the opera singer Maria Callas) at the Ti-Ahwaga Theater, and it was warm enough that we took a stroll around the block. I really enjoy where we live!

Here's how I know it's almost spring:
- It was still above 50 degrees when I left work this evening.
- Our neighbor took the plow attachment off his lawn mower.
- It's 8pm, and I can still see the trees across the road.
- The yard is beginning to be more green than brown.

When Reanna and Dan were getting ready to move, they were shedding a lot of books. One of those books was an old dictionary. I said that it was good for origami, and Dan handed it to me.
I found this pattern for a flower, I like it--it's simple, and I like the way it looks. I'm hoping to work up the ambition to make a string of these to hang in our house.
