Well, hello! Winter has been swept away by one last snowfall on April thirtieth, making room for sunshine and lots of green grass in every yard here in North Dakota. This morning I swept up old mulch and leaves from the flower beds out in the front of the house to see what perennials spring up. I’ve been cooking some new culinary delights, with a little more time away from work. I, for the life of me, cannot figure out why I am hearing seagulls in my town.

My wedding dress should arrive in the mail today or tomorrow. The photos the seamstress took look beautiful, just on the dress form. I’m very excited to see if it will fit and, well, look nice of course. Things are falling into place; there are just a few more things to do. I have to get the ceremony programs printed, and assemble place cards. It’s tough to try to get 178 people to répondez, s’il vous plaît with the cards enclosed, and some forgot to write a name on it! Being as it may, half of those invited so far have replied with a yes. I wish the economy wasn’t so terrible and people could visit with their friends and family whenever, just like years ago. I suppose geography has something to do with it as well, since people are living farther from their home town more frequently.
I’ve received some lovely wedding gifts, and one came with an amusing card, compliments of a childhood friend and his new wife.
