A chilly and gray day, but a happy one for us as we spent some good hours with Noah and Ava. Delycia played "baby" with Ava, read with Noah a bit, and generally kept the kids interested and surprised, and I set out some sweet little early-Easter chocolate creatures for the kids to find in the yard. As we left, Ava, often a shy little person, dash up to both of us and gave the best of hugs. That, in itself, might make my week. What lucky people we are!
Now, at 6:00 pm, I'm out on the patio beside the heating-up charcoal in the new grill, listening to the evening chimes coming across the streets from the Baptist church on the hill. Delycia is resting inside after a brisk 90-minute walk.
