I've been in a "clean it out o' here" sort of mood the last few days and it's best to go with feelings like that. Part of me has been itching to both get on with the current in-progress quilt and get started on the new ideas that are now ready to begin. But alas - I know I really need to put stuff in bags and make them go away. That serves me in the long run. And the projects are like tantalizing things on the horizon.
Beautiful bit of alpenglow tonight as I came home. That gorgeous gold glow in the sky at the horizon that gets transformed by skimming over the hills until it hits the treetops and hilltops where you are with this amazing color and light. Bonus: many many deer out feeding in the fields tonight. They look a bit shaggy which probably means they're starting to lose their dull winter coats.
In other news? Just a note that Saturday's normal programming will be interrupted by the 30th anniversary of Apple.
What a great day to be home! I put away a little more stuff and then went for a walk. It was a bit cooler than I thought but the alternating of sun and shadow and breeze was very pleasant. A few birds, a chipmunk, a pair of mallards (the male all shiny and irridescent), but not much else out and around. Lots of dry leaves chasing around in the fields. A few patches of snow! Lots of wind-broken trees. Some waterbugs. A couple of cheeps from the braver peepers. That unmistakable wet ground, decaying leaves sort of smell and that fresh fresh sunshiny breeze smell. A creeper pretending he was a woodpecker and making a lot of noise. Suddenly, a really big bird that sure looked like an eagle, but that was probably a big hawk (all I could really see was the size and the light-colored head). And a trio of crows yacking it up.
Oh my! Blogger finally came through for me. Holy moly. How interesting (it doesn't take much folks to divert my attention) that instead of springing up from 0 to 25 to 50 to 100%, it went 0, 33, 66, 100%.
I don't care as long as it works. Archives are back!
Had a nice Friday night and Saturday with the ladies from East Side Quilters - this was our Quilt-In weekend. It got shortened to an evening and all day Saturday event but we did an impressive amount of work towards the quilts we give away each fall. I basically hauled everything back into my sewing room last night and put my feet up.
today I'm doing a little shovelling out, filling some bags for trash, some for good-will etc. Maybe it's a sign of spring (saw my first vulture and robins last week). Or maybe it's just a sign that I'm fermenting a couple of new project ideas and I'm not quite ready to start.
