Bagels And Daffodils

When we looked at this house on January 12th of this year, we knew it was the one. We had viewed another house earlier in the morning. When we arrived at this house, our realtor spent over 20 minutes attempting to contact the seller's realtor for the lockbox combination. During that time, Lisa and I roamed the 2 fenced in backyards. One big. One small.

Long story short, we made an offer 20 minutes after looking at the house. The sellers accepted. We officially closed on the house on February 19th.

One of the many things we admired about this house was the landscape. We've had a mild winter. We haven't had snow since December.

To date, our grass is turning green, there are green buds on the trees and bushes, and our daffodils and other Spring flowers are in bloom.

This morning, Lisa picked a bunch of daffodils for me.

I honestly didn't realize there were so many varieties of daffodils.

I put the daffodils in a vase.

It was such a bright moment amid the darkness of the COVID-19 virus pandemic.

A couple of hours later, I made a batch of homemade cinnamon sugar bagels. 

Lisa's favorite.

When I took the bagels out of the oven, Lisa was downstairs organizing the basement and her woodshop.

I cut a bagel. Slathered it with cream cheese. Wrapped it in a paper towel. Brought it downstairs for her to enjoy.

Her face lit up and she ate with gusto.

Big. Huge. Smile. 

It was one of those moments.

During these trying times amid the COVID-19 pandemic, these moments are so important. 

It's the little things.
