49. I wish you could see the Spring here

The air literally smells sweet. All the dogwoods are blooming. Wisteria graces most of the yards along the curvy road I have to travel to get to 'town.' The irises are coming on, as are the peonies. I've seen robins, tufted titmice, various woodpeckers, and lots of meadowlarks. There are still plenty of luna moths here. I am totally blissed out.

This Sunday, I'll be visiting a 'truck farm' near my new home. They're not yet 'certified organic,' but they only use organic methods. I'll get fresh kale, spinach, brussel sprouts, and broccoli. I'm transitioning into a Vegan lifestyle, because I'm sure I won't have health insurance for the next ten years (I remain hopeful that medicare will still be an option when I reach that age).

BTW, I had to move, because I was about to be homeless in Houston. I kept back my last two months of UI and solicited help from my BIL and friends. I'm so glad I have a friend who's letting me live with her rent free until I get a teaching position. I've already had much better luck looking for work here.
