Special occasions

Today the weather felt like spring! It was great.

Today was also Administrative Professionals Day. Once upon a time, that was Secretaries Day, but for some reason the term "secretary" has gone out of fashion and been replaced with "administrative assistant." My job title is "Legal Assistant." I fancy at one time "legal assistants" were "legal secretaries." Call me what you will. Just don't call me late for dinner.

My kind co-workers gave me and my fellow legal assistant each a card, signed by everyone in the office. I am touched to receive that kindness.

The other occasion, according to my sister's book blog, is that April is National Poetry Month. This spring, as the trees have leafed out, their yellow tinge kept making me think of the Robert Frost line, "Nature's first green is gold."

Nothing Gold Can Stay
Robert Frost

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
