Friday's Mail.

Dear Husband's Boss,
Thank you for the table you sent home with my husband.

I mixed some Antibes Green and Arles ASC Paint which fixed it up;
it's serving a great purpose on the porch now.

Dear toads that were sitting in the puddle in the driveway this afternoon:

you brought up a lot of discussion with the kids today that I hadn't planned...
but I guess that's the way it happens sometimes, right?

We hope your babies will be very happy in the little bit of a pond we have: that puddle was too treacherous a place for them to stay.

Dear Violet,
Have I told you how much I love the fact that you are loving learning how to cook?

It certainly isn't good for my diet;
but I have to admit, I think you are much better at this cooking thing than I am.

Dear Levi,
What would I do without the sudden outbursts of laughter you fill my day with?

Dear God,

I love spring.  I love toads and desserts (separately, of course).  I love laundry baskets full of little boy.  I love hand-me-down furniture and the power of paint and brush.  

Thank you,
really and truly.
