Tuesday Morning, March 5

1) You know, I don’t even remember if I made New Year’s resolutions or not. At this point, who cares? Just keep going forward!

2) As soon as a big packet of snow arrives, so does the seed catalog. I’m sure they do it deliberately. It’s a beautiful dream catalyst, considering all the flowers and herbs.

2a) They all disappear when I remember that spring, when most gardening needs to get done, is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year at the office.

3) Nellie Taft was so discreet. Disabled by a stroke during much of her time as First Lady, she described it only as “an attack of illness” in her memoirs.
