workshop, we made spring lanterns - the kind meant for garden parties, outside dinners, and damp, cool nights. Thankfully, the rain has come to our valley in Massachusetts, and our ground is now muddy and squishy -- as it should be in early May. With the rain, comes days where the gray settles into the sky in the morning and stays until bedtime. A little bit of candlelight shining through colorful lanterns will make these early spring evenings nice, I think.
Mine is a slender pendant lantern, and its cheerful, warm glow was making me happy last night. The wriggly worms on wet pavement are making me happy too.
