Blessings


What an absolutely beautiful day it's been! After taking these two photos I just had to soak it up without looking for ways to share it with you because my camera battery died. It's charging now, so it'll be rarin' to go this weekend. We're taking a whirlwind trip down the Columbia River Gorge to Walla Walla, WA and back this weekend for a family gathering, and I want my camera at the ready. This time of year can bring nasty driving weather, but today's perfection is supposed to continue well into next week; what a blessing. I look forward to scenic vistas, lots of knitting time, and making memories.

We are thankful for those who are willing to care for our critters while we are gone. I took Dozer and Jackson to their respective dog sitters this afternoon so we can leave early in the morning; Rick has his recliner to himself this evening. Have a great weekend (a safe weekend, my friends in the NE!), and I'll check in with you again next week.

That's it for now from . . .

I love your little flowers coming up! I can hardly wait until we see some of that here. Have a fun time in Walla Walla. I have a son attending college there.

Blessings and safe travels,
Fay

Oh my goodness! It's so nice to see spring flowers when all we have here is snow and ice!

Have a good time. It's been years since I saw the gorge and I would love to go again.
Love the spring bulbs coming through the earth. Beautiful!!

Wow, look at that! Real green growing things! Coming out of the ground! Rendered me almost speechless. Big envy! Nothing green will be seen here for a couple of months yet.
