Square Slippers are in progress as part of the March Origami along or CMMDI. This will probably also be an April Origami for me. Here's the project page (public). I've knit more since I took this photo but I'm being lazy. I'm really enjoying this pattern.
Yesterday was nice and sunny but today is overcast and a possibility of snow. The landscape is still very white here but I'm hoping for a good melt soon. Spring weather will be very welcome.
I *really* like this song. I wish I could find it for sale. It was a track on a Japanese release of their most recent album, it seems. Or maybe I'm so out of the mainstream that it is there but I can't see it.
I am contemplating what meal to prepare for Easter dinner that is kind of quick and easy. Mom will be on day 2 of recovering from catarract surgery on her left eye so I really don't want to go out to a restaurant...mostly because of the crowds. I will be surfing for grain-free meal ideas this afternoon. Any suggestions?
I've been away from blogging so long I can no longer figure out how to edit my blog's appearance. I've found TypePad 101 and so I have some reading cut out for me. Or..... I don't pay them enough to be allowed to be playing with my blog. /sigh*
Have a lovely week!
*There are times when I feel like referencing Sleeping Beauty or Rip Van Winkle, but I am sure the latter is more applicable and I'm not so sure I like it.
Although I see snowflakes drifting down from the skies this morning, I must say that I know spring is coming. How do I say that with such certainty? What's my evidence? Our number one predictor at Chez Purling Oaks......Blue is shedding at his "spring is almost here and I must get rid of this heavy coat" rate. Any dark clothing must be worn with extreme vigilance and lint rollers close at hand.
My mother, Cousin Kim, and I were inspecting the Jung Seed catalog yesterday and speculating on what seeds and plants we would plant this year. Mom and Kim are planning on some nice big pumpkins, there's a new cherry tomato from Jung's that has a strawberry shape that Kim wants me to start, and they both requested some longkeepers, although Jung's no longer offers them in their catalog. Longkeepers will do just that---if you store them on a shelf, you may have home-grown tomatoes into January. Nice. Dan's requested some of the mini eggplants for this year. So, I think I better start hunting for those seeds!
