Signs of Spring

Magnolia tree: in full bloom at the beginning of April. Is this really Minnesota?

Stuff going on:
Harvey Brooks is back in the hospital--but here in Mankato. Yesterday, he seemed better than Saturday, thank goodness. Pneumonia and  a couple blood clots by themselves are not good; together, they are very scary.

Editing Slider's Son. Wanted to send it back to agent by the end of March, but I guess I'll have to settle for the first week in April. Wearing my Bob Feller t-shirt for inspiration today.

Some good bike rides. Feeling sort of strong on the hills for the first time in a few years. A short ride alone now usually includes climbing the 99 east hill, and that feels good. Yesterday, a great ride with Lisa and Kate, with a long stretch into the wind.

Tom's 50th Birthday today. Running to Nicollet to get a roast to put in the crock pot for birthday dinner.

Our baby plants: we were WAAAAAAY late planting seeds indoors this year, but it's still gratifying to see the seedlings holding their little green heads toward the growlight.
