The prayer flags are flying and the forsythia blooming in my yard. This was taken on Sunday.
This is the part of our yard that faces the Connecticut River to the east. It's tranquil, beautiful and a perfect place to sit and contemplate, read, eat, drink and be merry. To the left, which is north, lies the eagles' nest. There is currently one baby in there. The other egg never hatched. With field glasses, we can see the nest and a blob of the eagle's fine head occasionally.
So, about my week. Firstly let me tell you that my weekend was splendid. On Saturday, W.P. and I went to our favorite breakfast/brunch spot in Amherst - The Lone Wolf. I had been craving a bagel with lox so I ordered their version which includes generous slices of red onion, sliced tomatoes and capers. Oh, was it good. Uuum.
Sunday night we went to see Lou Reed in Northampton. It was a beautiful night and we had ample time to walk around town and take in a sculpture exhibition in the park across the street from The Calvin Theater.
This week; this entire glorious week; I am on vacation. I have some projects I want to begin here at home. Some painting, raking and preparing of flower beds, window boxes and planters. W.P. has to be in Zurich on business all week, so I'm going to keep very busy. I have lunch planned with a friend later in the week and on Friday, I'll be spending the day in Boston with Supergirl II, who has only one class that day. We haven't finalized our plans yet but I think we're going to visit the Museum of Contemporary Art.
I am so diggin' this incredible weather, aren't you?
