1. A little bit each day, I'm working at getting weeds and blackberries cleared out of the back yard and I completed step one today. I'll keep at it no matter how many days it takes, slow, steady, and sure. And patient.
2. I was happy to order the Deke a plane ticket to Chicago on Nov. 11 through the 15th so she can spend more time with David.
3. Snug and Maggie lay together under the kitchen ironing board today, peacefully, in the mode of the lion lying with the lamb.
