The birds are back

Well, it's somewhat official that spring is here...the red-winged blackbirds are back. The temperatures don't reflect this but nature usually proves to be correct on weather and seasons so I'm going to trust it on this one.

I was planning on attending the Sewing Expo in Puyallup yesterday and woke up at 4:30 am to take off only to find out the pass was getting dumped on with snow and the west side was having traffic accidents left and right with the snow and icy roads. So I said forget it and instead I went online and spent my fun money I had planned to spend at the Expo getting some new patterns for some basic clothing items. Now to find some fabric! I was out the money for the tickets/registration but didn't drive 4 hours to and fro so saved the gas money so guess it's a wash on that end.

This weekend I'll be skirting some of the fleeces in the garage. Got quite a few more to do although I've gotten a good start. Think I'll start some seeds for the garden inside and see how that goes. We start lambing in 2 weeks. Everything hits at once, good weather, lambing, farm work, etc. Winter does seem sooooo long but spring hits hard and then you forget all about winter! Once the robins arrive, we'll be set!


  1. I hope the spring at your end continues to flourish. Have a nice day my friend..

  2. I love Spring and I love to feed and watch the birds at our house as well Jami.
    Prince and I sit on the deck with a nice Mint Julep and watch the birds play and drink water out of our pool. It such a glorious end to a hard days work, no?

    Steady On

  3. Oh, you ain't a kiddin' friend. I have never had a mint julep I have to admit but they sound so genteel. The Canadian honkers are doing a lot of traveling through here too and of course the bald eagles are everywhere. It's calving time in the valley and they are well...scavengers or all kinds of unmentionables.
