Looking at the tree just outside my window, I see a Robin Red Breast preening herself as she rearranges herself on her nest. It;s spring. I hear plenty of bird calls as I walk across the dewy grass first thing in the morning to fetch my paper. Yes, we still read our newspapers printed on newsprint. I’ve tried doing without and reading online, but it’s just not the same as spreading out newsprint all over the table. I just have to remember to keep gathering up all those papers to recycle. It’s part of the routine. Today is bicycle to work day and it is a perfect day for bicycling. This weekend families will start arriving into town to celebrateCommissioning Week and this year to economize there will be no Blue Angels. I know my sentiment is not popular, but I will not miss them. I do not like the noise and neither does my dog. If you would like some inspiration for creating a salad or what to buy this weekend at the Farmers’ Markets check out my latest posting on Baltimore Girl Cooks by the Bay. Happy Weekend.
