Five years ago today we drove to Connecticut and brought Winter home. She weighed all of eleven pounds. Since then she has grown up to be a big girl of twenty-eight pounds.
I usually take a picture of her sitting in the daffodils. This year the is still ice covering the garden with green spears sticking up. Winter was having no part of sitting on ice for a portrait. So we compromised and settled on her couch with blanket. She is rather suspicious about this whole photography thing.
Although the daffodils are not anywhere near flowering, the petunias I wintered over indoors have begun to bloom in profusion. Spring flowers are spring flowers wherever they bllom!
I made a loaf of my favorite Soda Bread in honor of the day. This is a plain loaf which is very nice with butter and lemon marmalade, and a cup of tea.
I finally remembered to stop in a Michaels to buy some foam sheets. I'll be making more templates this weekend.
I go to Michaels because it's convenient, but I like A.C.Moore much better. Not so much better tha I am willing to drive an extra fifteen miles to go there.
Toes crossed that it really will warm up a bit this weekend!
As always, thanks for stopping by....*s*
