Hey, does anyone remember that movie? "It It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium" I have no idea why that popped into my mind a few seconds ago (like so many other things that pop in and then out).
Friday I did leave work by Noon. It was just too lovely to stay in my office. And this is what I saw at the edge of my driveway when I pulled in:
Such pretty flowers. There are some blooming by our front door as well.
I managed to get all the bills paid (I HATE that chore) and then picked up the Oaklet shawl. It was ok!!! Woo-Hoo. I finished the main part and actually started the lace border over the weekend. I've done only 4 rows, but the border is only 21 rows. And no more knots in the yarn.
Saturday was a lot of domestic chores - laundry, dusting and vacuuming, etc. I also managed to pull all the tax stuff together and called the accountant and set up a time to bring everything to her. Glad that chore is done (well, at least my part of it). Then I (finally) tackled the filing cabinet and cleaned that out. Whew! A lot of papers went into the trash and I can now open the drawers and actually move files and see what is inside them!
Fletch and I played with our bows and arrows again on Saturday before the big storm moved in. No more bulls eyes or splitting twigs, but I did manage to plant an arrow in a tree a distance behind the target. We wrapped up our play time around 4 p.m. and by 5:00 the storm was rolling in. Wind! Thunder and lightening (in February!!) and rain. It was all over by 6:30 or so and the temperature had dropped 20 degrees. Sunday was nasty cold and windy and now it is supposed to be back up in the mid-70's by tomorrow (with more strong storms in the afternoon). Crazy!
I've pulled out yarn for a pair of socks for Colin, but my first cast-on was awful - loose and ugly. So, I ripped that out and I have yet to cast back on. Maybe tonight. No pictures till at least a few rows are completed (and look good - lol).
It's March tomorrow -- only 3 weeks till Spring!!
And, happy Mardi Gras!!
