Weekend Forecast: Daffodils

I picked some daffodils today and put those pinwheeling suns in my Edgemar Milk Bottle
and set them on the kitchen table. So cheerful. Something wonderful about today. Took a long walk, about 2.5 miles. The weather has cooled off considerably. The wind is coming from the Northeast, off the lake, and it's brisk but still smells of Spring. Down the road from me, the fire department has been practicing on an abandoned house for several weeks; and this morning, they burned it down. It's still sending large clouds of smoke west. All that's left standing are the front steps and the chimney.

In the mail received my National Poetry Month poster from the Academy of American Poets. It's so lovely, with lines culled from Philip Levine's poem "Our Valley." I plan on hanging it up at St. John Fisher College.

Upcoming this week is the Women in Music Festival at Eastman School of Music.
This is an amazing offering and the events are free:
