It's Thursday, tomorrow is Friday going to go and pick up daughter from college for spring break...and it's spring. think it's an early "April Fool" joke!

  42. I'm loving today because there is sun. It's been SO LONG on that and I am trying not to stare directly toward it. Also it's a skippy day because I'm machine quilting a top for a friend and having to use monofilament thread in the top and it's cooperating too. Usually I have to say choice words. Win! Win!

And it's a blue sky day at our house because I'm going to spend it surrounded by our dogs and cats (and my sweetheart), piecing and quilting, defying my migraine. Blue skies smiling at me, nothing but blue skies do I see...sounds like the inspiration for a quilt, eh?

  66. It was a splendid day today. I got some cleaning done, did up a load of wash to hang on the clothesline, had company for a couple of hours this afternoon, raked the front lawn with hubby (Oh my, it does look nice!!), had a chicken breast and sweet potatoe for supper, and had several hours to do some English Paper Piecing!! As an added piece of sweetness, the sun was shining in Iowa and the wind was quiet. WOW! Spring has sprung!

    ReplyDelete
  67. It's another beautiful day here in Mexico. Even after 4+ years down here, it is amazing to have temps on the 70's and sometimes 80's this time of year, but after almost 60 years in Seattle I love having flowers growing outside all year round.

  68. Today in the Washington, DC area we had sunshine and warmth; two things that have been missing in our lives lately. It was a lovely day to celebrate Spring, and as I walked in Rock Creek Park I could see the beginnings of buds on many of the bushes and trees. The grackles are back at the bird feeder, so I know Spring is really close, even though the weatherman keeps saying the "s" word.
