I'm off the roller coaster, as I call it. The kids are moved and settled in. I have been spending every spare minute cleaning closets and getting "my" room back to what it was before they moved back here a couple of years ago. Its no wonder I haven't done anything creative. There just was no room. If I had the time, I couldn't find what I wanted. Here's a good example.
I even searched for the pattern to buy another, but I was searching for a gypsy pattern because that's what I think of her being. She's out of print so I'm glad I found her. She's not on my current project list, but I am sure I will NOT to misplace her again!
I took a huge box of art and scrap-booking supplies, paper, pencils, folders and any other items over to the school that I am sure the elementary school teachers would be able to use.
I am still committed to the 360 challenge. I took a lot of pictures of the things that have been taken to Good Will, given to Laurie, and taken other places where they will be useful. I am happy to say that I have NOT replaced them with more stuff. Well, except a little, well, more than a little, fabric.
Like almost everyone across the country, we enjoyed a mild winter and an unseasonably warm late winter. The evidence is shown in this bleeding heart that was blooming at the beginning of March.
I don't know much about Bleeding Heart, but Laurie brought this one from her yard when she moved in. I'm pretty sure that early March is way early for it to be blooming. Even though we have had some frosts, it is still flourishing.
We have the pleasure of seeing our bluebirds return. It appears that we have more than one pair in the area. We see them in the back yard and at the front yard feeders. I am always amazed when I watch one swoop to the ground from a tree branch and return with a bug in its beak. How do they know the bugs are there? We have several bluebird houses in the back yard, though this is only one of them and not the one that this male coaxed his mate to. She is sitting there, next to the one SHE has chosen, waiting...
