In Like a Lion…

Well, March sure is coming in like a lion (as it does most years), and if the weather forecasters are right, it promises to go out like a lamb too.  This promise is what makes this (hopefully) last snow storm until November so sweet.  It sure has been beautiful, with its soft wet flakes falling on almost bare ground covering the trees and cars in a white blanket.  It’s been warm enough for the kids to enjoy themselves while playing in it too!

So we have spent this snowy March day reading, baking (yes, I love to bake on snowy days…who doesn’t?), making snow angels and throwing snowballs (the kids even found a big purple ball in the back yard…bonus), mopping up wet footprints from the floor, and just reveling in the beautiful views from our windows.

How are you welcoming March?

Reading and Knitting…

I’m absolutely loving The Memory Garden by Mary Rickert.  I’m only 40 pages in, but so far I am hooked and looking forward to learning more about Nan and her adopted daughter, Bay.  Perhaps the most engaging aspect of the novel for me is the garden.  This time of year I just yearn for anything that transports me to the seasons of growth and workable dirt.

I am working on a cowl for my sister.  The pattern is beautiful and fun to knit.  I’ve been so sleepy lately (this growing baby is really taking it out of me) that this simple project is taking much longer than it should 🙂

What are you reading and working on?
