hello Spring

We have had so much lovely sunshine that it really does feel like spring has arrived. The plum trees are blooming, the days are getting longer, and thanks to an invitation to a Fitbit challenge from my friend Lori, I am logging a lot of steps. My new running shoes should be here any day and best of all, I am finally beginning to feel well.

I am stalled with my knitting so no unraveling but I have been reading. I finished Educated, what a fascinating story. I am enjoying How to Stop Time so much! Today I started listening to The Four Tendencies. I am not sure yet which tendency I am but it is an interesting theory.

Be sure to visit Kat to see more book and yarn adventures as we settle into spring.


Weekends are complicated around here and too often end up being as busy as the work week. This weekend the forecast was rain and more rain and perhaps some wind thrown in. But Saturday morning I checked my weather app and saw a small window of dry skies so I texted my daughter – Want to go for a hike? She quickly texted back – Sure!

When we met up, the rain seemed to be committed to sputtering but the trail I chose is very wooded so we would be protected a bit. And once on the trail, the rain stopped! Huzzah! The trail was very muddy but the greens of the moss and leaves was well worth the splattered pants and mud caked boots. Best of all, the rain held off most of Sunday so the driving I needed to do was on dry roads.

I also made some very good progress on my Birkin sweater and had time to do some reading and writing and best of all, a morning with my favorite tiny person who is having so much fun with a large produce box.

How was your weekend?
