1. More bunnies. Today they were lolling in the back yard. Not just sitting up cute with all their feet tucked under their bodies. Lolling about as if they owned the place.

2. Max’s gladiolas in his front yard are amazing. There are three colors in a dozen or so plants and the blooms are so full. That kids does have a green thumb!

3. Met with Max’s school staff today. They have really really been creative with next year’s plans for coping with whatever turns the pandemic takes. I’m so glad Max is there.

4. I learned a new term from Max yesterday that I’m researching still. “Oak hammock.” He pointed a few out to us as we drove to Weatherford. They’re quite distinct and very pretty. I’m going to read up (and ask him) some more. It made me happy that he pulled that term out of his brain as we drove by the first one he saw, then continued to point them out. That boy.

5. Another hot, sunny, breezy Texas day with a cool, pleasant morning and evening. The kind of day to stay inside, in the shade!

I love to hear what’s making you happy!

Keep going.
