My day

"Meadow rats" along the lane leading to our house this afternoon.

I need to clean the leaves out of my flowerbeds!

My sister and her husband flew home today; Oregon gave them a sunshiny good-bye kiss to make them want the job Kristine interviewed for that much more. She might know by the end of the week!

I received this lovely gift today in addition to the purple croci near my front door. Awhile back I won a drawing on Tina's blog, and for that she sent me a personal tea party! Not only is the Earl Grey decaffeinated, the cookies are my favorite from childhood when my grandma used to make them, and since I didn't make any last Christmas, it feels like forever since I've enjoyed any. The chocolates are from a shop near Tina, and were (yes, I said "were;" wanna make something of it? :-) heavenly. Thank-you so much, Tina!

I haven't had much time to knit in the last 24 hours, but did finally reach the underarm shaping on the back of my vest. I'll take another photo after whatever I can add to it tonight. Since I do have two skeins of a lighter grey in the same yarn, I'm sure I can attractively incorporate those somehow to finish it should I run out of the dye lot I started with. Knit on!

That's it for now from . . .

Oh, how I long to see some spring flowers. How lucky you are to see green instead of huge piles of white. Beautiful photos.

I received a package this morning from Tina as well, but I didn't photograph when it first came and have had my way with the contents since. I had my first Mexican Wedding Cookie before breakfast - yum!

Crocuses?! Already?! I gotta move somewhere warmer. My spring flower beds are under at least 12-18 inches of snow, and will be for a long time yet....
