Hello and Good Morning!!
Yesterday at this time it was in the teens. This morning? 36. That's above freezing and lends hope. According to the radio guy, today is supposed to hit 63. The hope/plan is to get out for a walk either late morning or early afternoon. Time will tell. I want to get into some (or give it a try anyway) Nordic Pole Walking so I'd best look for my poles - I think they are in the back of my car.
But first: Tiny Needle Tuesday. You would think/guess that with two weeks since I last posted about stitching I would have a lot to show. That is not the case! All I managed to do in those two weeks is the start of another motif at the bottom of the sampler.
The little bit of red is the beginning of another motif. It is not even halfway finished! Honestly, I felt more like knitting (and thus, managed to finish heart Warmer which I posted about yesterday). I'm not bored with this project or tired of it, I just felt like doing something different. So I did. Maybe next week there will be more progress to show.
Fletch and I did see some hints of Spring yesterday. In the morning before I left for the office, I looked out back and there had to be at least 10 Red Winged Blackbirds in the yard - under our sunflower seed feeder. I love Red Winged Blackbirds - always makes me think of getting to the lake in Vermont as we would always see them along the roadway leading to the lake. Around here, we usually just see them for a little bit in the Spring. We often hear them, but don't always see them. But to have 10+ in the yard was a wonderful gift!
Later in the afternoon Fletch came in and told me a small patch of crocus had finally appeared in our bed alongside the driveway. Another welcome sight for sure!
Looks like that bed could use some cleaning! Now I need to see if our snowdrops are coming up.
Colin texted that he saw deer in the backyards around him as well as a little rabbit running along the fence and a disappointed fox skulking off in the opposite direction. YAY for the rabbit's escape!
Wishing you all a Spring-like day wherever you are. Do let me know what signs of Spring you see.
