I wrote three posts this week.
Good Thing #1. My library has begun curbside pickup. Happily, my library has Seinfeld on DVD. It's been a long time since we watched Seinfeld.
Good Thing #2. My husband and I participated in the Texas Invasive Species Bioblitz this week. So far, we've photographed seven invasive species in our area. It was nice to get out and walk around the county park for a couple of hours.
Good Thing #3. Quotes I ran across and wrote down this week. Former first lady Michelle Obama: "When they go low, we go high. And that ain't always easy, y'all." Author Graham Joyce, just before he died: "Why can't our job here on earth be simply to inspire each other?"
Bonus Good Thing. My grandson Wyatt is walking a little. He is so proud. I love the excitement of his four-year-old sister Annie, too.
