Signs

I looked out the window this weekend, and started yelling when I saw this.

The robins have returned – a sure sign around around here that Spring is very near!

We were lucky to have a full week of sunshine, so I jumped for joy when I saw this slowly exposing itself in our yard.

Signs of grass under the melting snow!

You know what comes next, right?

Bulbs! Notice those bulbs on the left – dang rabbits are already munching on my plants.

Yippee, join me in doing the happy dance for these signs of Spring – my favorite season is coming!

Sunday’s List

Today’s list includes finishing several projects:

Lots and lots of bulbs to plant. I got a pile of crocuses, hyacinth, anemones and more – all early bloomers. I love seeing the early bulbs coming in March, when there’s still snow around here, yet we are yearning to get out in the garden.

Lots of leaves to rake. We don’t have a lot of trees in our yard that drop too many leaves, but there’s a pretty big pile in the front to rake (and then jump in!).

A sewing project to finish. I can’t say much more about it just yet. But it’s pretty and exciting. I promise.

Finish making my contribution to the scrap challenge, sponsored by JCasa:Handmade. I have my project cut out, and just need a few minutes to assemble it. I’m excited for this one too!

A knitting project (or two) to work on when I have a few spare minutes. I doubt I will have time to finish either of these knitting projects (scarf and fingerless gloves), but it doesn’t hurt to add these to the list.

My to-do lists are usually overly ambitious, but I love having Sundays to work on all these home and craft projects. I have a busy day ahead so I better get going. Hope you have a great day!
