Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. The woman from my volleyball team and I finally got together for coffee this week. Then we went out for beers (full disclosure, I drink neither beer nor coffee) after our game tonight and our partners joined us.

2. One of the coffeehouses I like to frequent has Arnold Palmers on their menu and I decided to order one this week. They use frozen lemonade, so the drink was delightfully slushy.

3. My second movie screening this week worked out far better than the first. Poms was a charming look at female friendship and persevering when it would be easier to give up. It’s not a great film — it asks a few bigger questions (about multigenerational families and about adult children parenting their parents), yet never bothers to answer them, and most of the characters aren’t fully three-dimensional — but it was an enjoyable way to pass a couple hours and most of the audience (predominantly older women themselves) seemed to agree.

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

Those irises look so cheerful. Are they just colorful, or do they also have a scent? My mother used to have some irises in her garden that smelled better than just about any flower I’ve ever smelled, maybe even better than the lilies-of-the-valley and lilacs.

Well, my husband is working on the screened porch floor! Hooray it is time to spruce it up. No more ugly indoor outdoor carpeting. It is beautiful even unfinished. Other beautifuls: gift grasses from Regina, gift seeds from Val being sprouted in a dish and I will plant today, and the sun is out. Oh the sun!
