It’s Cherry Blossom time in Washington, DC and guess who’s here to enjoy those beautiful pink bouquets of “simply loveliness”? (I sort of gave it away when I said “here” – didn’t I?)
I flew out yesterday to celebrate this beautiful springtime event in DC and to spend Easter with my daughter. This is her first year to be living here – so I wanted to make this a mom/daughter event. (Yes, to my friends and family, as you know, I hate flying >>> so you know how determined I was to get out here!)
We’re going down to see the blossoms this morning, and again during the beginning of the week. My daughter doesn’t remember seeing the blossoms when she was itty-bitty, so it will be fun for me to see the blossoms with her “for the first time”.
I didn’t get much actual reading done on the flight yesterday; however, I was able to listen to about half of the latest Alexander McCall Smith No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency novel. I’ve started a new-to-me Cozy Mystery author on my Kindle, so it’s still too early to tell if I’m going to stay with it.
Well, we’re off to see the blossoms…
