This past week my new thing was to try rhubarb. Bob made some strawberry-rhubarb jam. It was okay, but not my favorite. I'll have it again. I'm glad I tried it.
There are many other fruits I like better with black raspberries remaining my favorite.
My new thing to try this next week is to find a brand new place to walk. When using the same place all the time can become a little boring. That and I get to know the people in the neighborhood and they want me to stop and talk. I hate being rude, so sometimes I do, other times, I wave. If Bob is with me, he'll stop and talk and I'll go ahead and get him on the way back.
I'm going to try to find a place where I can take the dogs, too. I walk the two little ones and Bob takes the bigger two.
Tomorrow starts the Lenten Season for us with Ash Wednesday. I'm not sure if we'll go to Mass or not. At our ages, we don't have to do so. But this is a time for reflection and denial of some of the extremes in our lives. I think this is one of the reasons I was so shocked with the Pope's announcement that he is retiring at the end of this month. I should think he would have waited until this most holy of seasons was over with Easter Sunday. I couldn't believe what I was reading that he was stepping down to begin with and then really shocked over when.
I know this is short, but I want to keep it that way this once.
Everyone enjoy their week. My best thoughts for all my Buddies.
Peace Love Hope
My Hawk friend who visits me often. He'll also leave me feathers every so often.
He used to walk around the house on the sidewalk, but he hasn't done that in a very long time.
