1. The deep, bold colors of the landscape hold my attention this morning. The mountains are the deepest purple, contrasted by emerald greens in the foreground, dotted with white blossoms everywhere, (and the occasional black Angus).
2. I found an hour and a half of free time to begin painting the bookshelves.
3. The dandelions are blooming and I pluck a few and have a good sniff. They are a nuisance, but nothing smells more like spring to me than dandelions.
