Spring is making its presence felt, even if the spring weather has been very fickle this year. We've had quite a bit of wind and cool temperatures, but the weekend weather was glorious. Eighty degree afternoons, drew me outdoors to clean up flower beds and enjoy meals on the patio. Of course, Monday brought rain, a breeze, and a return of the cold. But whatever it is that I'm allergic to blossomed over the weekend and now I'm sneezing my head off. Time to pull out those meds again - thank the Lord for them!
Kevin and Kyle have been busily working on their Pinewood Derby cars for the race this Saturday. Today is Tax Day, so DH will be getting those forms in the mail at midnight. It's just a tradition for him to always wait till the last hour before mailing the return. Brendan is taking the math/science portion of the WASL (Washington Assessment of Student Learning) this week. Kirsten always is busy with one thing or another. Everyone has their projects.
As for me, Friday was stamp club night again and these were the result:
I also got a little bit of the garage cleaned on Saturday, just a little mind you, but at least I can walk around now! My laundry is pretty much caught up, now to do a bit of ironing. I've cleaned up my desk and a couple of shelves. So at last I can begin to get ready for . . .
Yes, I get to go to the Victoria Sampler Spring Retreat next week! Tuesday I'll be picking up Connie in Lacey, overnighting in Anacortes, then taking the ferry next morning through the San Juan Islands over to Vancouver Island. We'll have Wednesday afternoon and Thursday for touristy fun, then Friday the stitching begins in earnest. Thea has a wonderful project ready for us and I can't wait to begin.
In the meantime, I have some stitching supplies to organize and an exchange gift to make!!
