Three beautiful things from a rather down week:

A Bouquet of Daffodils

1. Trader Joe’s sells bouquets of ten tightly closed daffodils from a dry bucket. When you get home, you’re supposed to cut off the ends and put the flowers in water and then, à la peanut butter sandwich, the next morning you have a vase of sunshine.

2. We’ve largely been spared by the brain-numbing cold that has blanketed much of the country this week (don’t tell the Southerners who live in D.C. that; they were convinced they had it rough), but it did bring us a snow shower one afternoon that disappeared before the ground got cold enough for anything to stick. No shoveling and no ice and pretty snow falling from the sky is about as big a winter win as you’re likely to get. (I apologize to those in the cold to whom that sounds like gloating.)

3. A card arrived in the mail this week from an unexpected source, but was so kind and so appreciated.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?
