City Living. For the Birds.

This is featured in The New York Times today. Interesting, but the birds are still pecking from a trough. I think it should come with a table and chairs and swanky modern light fixtures.

It's strawberry time here in Michigan, and since Tommy and I picked about 15 pounds yesterday, it also now feels like summer time. I will try to pick more next week.

I'm also reading this:

My aunt in St. Paul loaned this to me last summer, but for some reason I am finally reading it now. It is set (mostly) in Sweden, and I have a peculiar fascination with Sweden. I may not get there, but if I did I think I'd feel at home. And, yes, there is a strawberry patch in the book. But there is a lot more than strawberries growing in the story. I'm halfway into it and have reached that stage of a tale when I carry it around somewhere inside me... penny in my pocket, sweet candy in my mouth, something to savor.

Mackinac Island

We celebrated my parents' 50th anniversary last weekend on Mackinac Island. What a special occasion, and what a special place.
