Yearning for Spring
I ordered two skeins of Anchor Bay yarn from Webs for the toddler cardigan, I was delighted to cast on Wednesday night and have solely knit on this project. I'd love to finish this cardigan within a week or so. Easy!
How was your week? Our son has been here for his spring break, so my mornings have been either working or going to the gym and my afternoons have been doing something with him while he is here. We've had lunch out one day, gone shopping locally and then there is just sitting and talking. I'm not sure when he leaves, either Saturday or Sunday.
My intention this week has been to 'be in the moment'. I've been successful most of the time. Part of the success is to have no expectations whatsoever. I'm keeping up with the kitchen dishes and am valiantly ignoring the coffee table mess. (dare I say the mess isn't so bad?).
Okay, I have a confession. I am yearning for spring - there I said it. I have been on two walks and wasn't fully wrapped up in warmth - I was cold and I was wishing for light jacket weather. Outside my family room window is a bluebird who chirps at 6 a.m. Holly loves it and so do I.
The only signs of spring on my walk are the cardinals and robins singing. Just think, we've only a few more weeks until the blossoming occurs. I'm ready.

Holly loves to hide behind the blanket while under the loveseat. She does sneak attacks to whomever walks by (including Frodo). We find it hilarious, Frodo is overall confused. He usually is the pursuer and doesn't quite know what to do when he is the target. Holly is becoming skilled at sneaking around when Frodo is sleeping. If Frodo knows she is walking about there is a cat chase. However, the barking is a little less. Frodo is NOT fast enough or smart enough - she has him out skilled with her youth and agility and speed.

Because spring fever is in my mind, I've been reviving the 'salad a day' on the menu plan. Just another change that reminds me of warmer days ahead. Lately, I've been enjoying sunflower seeds, radishes and a chopped hard boiled egg on my salad. What are your toppings? Any new ideas for me?

I have a yarn review blog post for next week that I'm excited to share with you all. Also a few surprise posts later in the month. I hope spring is arriving wherever you are!!
