Yesterday, another day in this long stretch of beautiful weather we’ve been having, J and I went to Portland, for me to get a new cord for this iPad, and for us to shop at Trader Joe’s. Color everywhere in the landscape. Forsythia, now the fruit trees are starting to bloom. Jeannette and I were both happy and enjoyed a lunch at the quasi-Mexican place in the Maine Mall before going to TJs.

I’ve never seen Jeannette as happy as she has been this past year, and I don’t think *I* have ever been as happy. Whatever the future holds, this has been a good time for us.
