How I enjoyed my Friday day off! (Of course, now it seems long ago, sigh.)
This was how the morning started out, just relaxing and hanging out with these two:
It was supposed to rain quite a bit, but nothing was happening around our house, so I decided to take advantage of that and take a walk around the neighborhood. I took my phone with me so I could snap some photos to show you. One of the nicest things about our neighborhood is that people go out of their way when springtime comes to plant flowers, whether they are in the ground or in pots. One is more beautiful than the next when you are paying attention.
I decided to head towards the Schuylkill River Trail, to see what might be going on along there. Passing one of the research buildings that are part of the University of Pennsylvania, I saw these guys.
I though this flowerpot on someone's stoop nearby was particularly fancy.
Then I arrived at the trail.
Time to head home.
Look how happy these azaleas are in Fitler Square! I didn't take a wider shot, but if you happen to watch the TV show "Servant" you might be interested to know that a lot of the scenes in the most recent season of the show were shot here in Fitler Square.
I really enjoyed my walk, and it turned out that it was just what I needed to get the day going. Nothing of any great amazement or import happened or was accomplished for the rest of the day, but a lot of small things were taken care of, which sometimes feels more rewarding to me.
The rest of the weekend was nice and uneventful, so it felt like it lasted a long time.
One note for today: Please keep a good thought for my niece Amanda, her husband Pat, and their kitty Clancy. Today they will likely have to say goodbye to her, and even though she is 18 years old and has had a lovely kitty cat life with lots of love and attention, we all know that it is awful to say goodbye to those that you love. I'm just glad they can be all together when it happens. They've had Clancy since she was about 5 weeks old, so she is an extra special kitty.
Take care, and hug your loved ones.
