The other day I got a fun surprise in the mail. Stephanie at Christianson's Nursery had said she would be sending me a Thank You gift for featuring their nursery display garden at the Northwest Flower and Garden Fest on my blog. I had forgotten all about it, but then this shirt arrived in the mail. Fun!
I sent her this photo in a thank you email. She had said she wanted to meet me when we came for the Tulip Festival this year. Unfortunately there will be no tiptoeing through the tulips this year. The festival is cancelled, of course. This is a big blow to the economy of the Skagit Valley and a great disappointment to me. This was a highlight of my year.
Yesterday Jill set us up with an electronic meeting app, Zoom. Teachers are using it to provide instructional material to students who are out of school and she thought we could use it to visually visit too. She taught us how to use it and we are set up on our computers and phones. Always fun to learn a new thing.
The days here are pretty quiet. I exercise, ride my stationary bike, which is easier on my back and hip than walking, and I read. Each day I spend morning time at breakfast and at least an hour at lunch here, reading the newspaper and working the puzzles.
It's great to have daylight now for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
