Making Lemonade

I know that it is winter. I know it is cold and foggy outside, and there were ice patches on our back deck this morning. I know that our family is going to be facing some big challenges this year, just as many others are. Sacramento has had an economy which was very dependent on the building industry. We all know how that is going right now. The headlines are bleak at best.

But, my daughter asked me if she could make lemonade today. And I thought to myself, "why not?!" The foggy day has cleared to a crystal blue sky, and I saw the first blooms open on my flowering quince bush out in the garden.

I want to thank everyone for your patience while I collect myself this week. I am in the middle of making a bunch more lemonade.
