Three Things Thursday

Once again it’s time for Three Things Thursday:

three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy

Three Things Thursday

One: First Flowers of Spring

Daffodil plants have been pushing up their green shoots for some time now. But the red flowers on this rhododendron bush are the first floral blooms I’ve seen.

The rhododendron is the official flower of Washington State. It won’t be long now before we’ll be seeing these gorgeous flowers in their full array of bright, vivid colors.

Two: Margarita Day Dinner

Tuesday was Margarita Day! Four times a year our retirement community provides a dinner for all residents of the various independent-living units. Our Tuesday evening dinner celebrated the occasion of the day with Mexican food: tacos, cheese enchiladas, rice, and refried beans. And Margaritas, of course, lots of Margaritas.

But some diners chose an alternate beverage.

Three: Amazon Locker

A couple of days ago I spotted this outside my local supermarket:

Amazon locker

I’d heard that Amazon was offering locker delivery, but I’d never seen one of their lockers before. This one’s name is Theo, and I was able to add it as an alternate delivery address to my Amazon account.

But then I deleted it. Why would I want my stuff put into a locker when I can have it delivered directly to my door? I know this is probably a convenience for some Amazon customers, but I’ll stick with direct delivery.

Until next Thursday …
