Hello and Good Morning,
It is a blustery morning here in Eastern PA. I could hear wind chimes during the night as well as our buoy bell which hangs quite a distance at the back of our yard by the shed. Looks like it is sunny and not too chilly (low 40's at the moment), but I know the cold is coming in this afternoon and tonight. When Dee and I meet up tomorrow morning, the forecast high for the day is only 35. Then back up to 50 on Sunday. So, our roller coaster ride continues.
I have a bunch of different things to share today. First up the pink lemons I mentioned earlier in the week. I cut into one Wednesday night to put on our salmon.
Not as pink as I had hoped, but definitely a bit different than "normal" lemons. I did not notice a difference in taste. Yesterday I cut one up for my infusion water bottle and added some blackberries. Again, no real difference in taste (in my opinion), but they are pretty on the buffet where we have a platter of fruit since the skin has green stripes on it.
I'm stealing my thunder for next Wednesday's Unraveled post, but the cowl is finished!! Woo-Hoo. I'm tempted to keep it myself, but it is already tucked away for my SIL for next Christmas.
There were issues with blocking it (which honestly I don't think it needed since it bunches up around you anyway)...
Mabel has been enjoying the blocking mats...as well as sitting on the wet cowl while it blocked! I had to resort to closing the office door when I wasn't in there. Fortunately it was only this one mat that she used to sharpen her claws.
Yesterday was a gorgeous day! It was very foggy in the morning. I drove up to Souderton to drop off all our tax stuff at the accountant's office. By the time I got home it was lunchtime and then the sun came out. I headed over to the trail that runs along the Perkiomen and had a nice 2.25 mile walk (I turned around when my back started to bother me, but nice to know I can do at least a mile comfortably and the return trip to the car was not bad). There were some signs of Spring.
BUT, you had to watch where you were stepping. These guys leave a BIG mess on the trails.
There were plenty of folks out - some walking, some biking, some running, some roller blading and I saw one guy on a skate board. When I got home I walked around and looked at stuff: there are buds on the fig tree (YAY), the garlic shoots are coming up, greens are beginning to grow in the one raised bed box that has old window frames over it like a greenhouse and even our Asian Pear has some buds. It won't be long!
The Spring feeling continued when Fletch grilled wings (hot and BBQ) for dinner. I had made a broccoli salad to go with them. By the time he was done grilling, we had to shut the door, but it sure was nice to get some fresh air!
Now I need to get to work. I have a busy morning and then a conference call at 11. After that I'm thinking my weekend will begin! Have a good one!
