Good Morning All,
Well, it's back to work for me today...but we do have a 2 hour delay, so I am still sitting at home sipping my morning coffee. A luxury!
Here's what it looked like in our backyard around 5 p.m. yesterday:
At times the sun peeked out through the grey sky and it really was a very pretty day. It snowed ALL day long. Fletch told me it stopped sometime late last night when he went out for a final clearing of my car and part of the driveway.
This is a shot from around 9:00 last night (still snowing then):
And it is beautiful today. The trees are all coated, birds are singing and feeding. Ahhh, Spring (I feel like I'm in New England!!). The reality is that it is not unusual for us to have snow in March - or even April - it just hasn't happened for a few years. And it never stays for long, so I will enjoy the beauty and stillness of it while I can.
I read a little bit yesterday (finished the latest By Hand magazine/book and a bit in Manhattan Beach) and knit a tiny bit (about 30 rows on the sock). However, I was not completely idle - lol. Fletch wanted me to sew some Velcro strips on a sweatshirt which entailed moving stuff off my sewing machine cabinet, getting the machine out, etc. That went smoothly. But...I just wasn't able to put things back on the cabinet so I started cleaning. Whew! I went through the bureau in the office room which stored (most of) my fabric, trims, beads, etc. I now have 3 LARGE garbage bags filled to overflowing with donation items. I put the beads aside for my friend Carol and a very small amount of fabric I will be sending out. The only thing piled on the cabinet now are some gorgeous dessert dishes that were my Mom's...which need to go to Colin & Mailing or one of my brothers. I also have a bag filled with cassette tapes - lol. I found a basket filled with them, and a box from my Dad. We have not had a tape player in years!! I have a large pile started of items to send to my brother in Colorado. Whew!
I still have a lot of fabric left. I found some I had (of course) completely forgotten about and now have plans for some tunic tops. And some gorgeous upholstery fabric I intend to use to make a jacket. We'll see...best laid plans and all that...
Meanwhile, I need to eat something, get dressed and then make my way into work. Tomorrow is Friday and that's a good thing!
