spring preview …

In just 10 days, the Spring Equinox officially arrives at 11.50 PM, ESDST. Today’s warm temps, sunshine and bright blue sky, were an invitation to journey out for a preview of delights to come. I accepted and out I went. I was not disappointed. Greeting me:

bright yellow daffodils
tulip tree buds about to blossom
and I’m not sure what this flower bush is…but it’s bright red flowers called out.

Hurry Spring! So looking forward to spending time with you!

yesterday, our bi-monthly Recent Reads gathering; the time seemed to come by sooner than (I’d )expected. Friend Margaret, hostess, served a delicious meal of both books and food, introducing us to Will Schwalbe – be sure to watch the video on the page. Friend Doris read The Winter Soldier – it sounds intriguing. I’ve not read any fiction so far this year so I think I’ll add it to my TBR list… My whole reason for initiating Recent Reads was to help jumpstart me to resume reading the occasional fiction title.  So far this year, I think I’m batting zero …

home, the bright blue sky and warm-enough temps beckoned me for a quick walk to/through the park. I was delighted to see the pink blossoms on the trees against the bright blue sky!

we watched our local PBS station’s fund drive last night~ featuring Norman’s favorite male crooner: Nat King Cole. Norman knows the lyrics to all Nat’s songs. As he – Nat, that is –  sang, I knit more rows on the log cabin blanket… a forever project  tho’ one that helps me sharpen basic knitting techniques and also, develop the habit of knitting/stitching while watching TV…Gretchen Rubin’s new book Outer Order, Inner Calm indeed did arrive…and I dipped a bit into it. It’ll be a quick read…and good!

today, for sure has been unraveled…starting with bright sunshine and a warm temperature of 29° F + wind, making it feel like a a warm/cold 18° F…just the invitation one – ahem, I – needed to stay in jammies & robe – making it a  s-l-o-w morning, er day… Lots of time spent researching, aka down a few YouTube holes. Pizza and champagne for our late  lunch …mainly because N was hungry and I have a 7:30 pm concert. Laundry done! Still have month’s expenses to tally…

Joining Kat and friends for today’s Unraveled Wednesday.

Cheers~
