The Thrills of Spring

Sunshine!

Woohoo! We finally had an 80^ day yesterday! That, to me, is a perfect day. There is still a lot of clean up for me to do around the yard, but I took a few minutes to pull out one of the patio tables and a chair, then just enjoy some time in the fresh air and sun perusing some garden books from the library.

New buds on the peonies!

Progress on A Legacy of Love!

And so much more, such as celebrating the baptism of our newest grandson on Sunday, the ending of one season (teaching Story Hour on Fridays) and the beginning of another (softball for Kirsten).

Topping it off, tomorrow I leave home to spend the night in Olympia visiting with Connie, continuing on to Victoria, B.C. on Thursday for the Victoria Sampler Spring Retreat!

Beautiful work on Legacy Von! Isn't it nice to be able to sit out and enjoy the outdoors once more? I'm doing the same today.
I'm so jealous, enjoy that retreat! We want to hear all the details.
