Today is the first day we have weather that resembles spring. It is 52 degrees, sunny and oh so pretty outside. Unfortunately, we are suppose to get about 5 inches of snow tomorrow morning. So what do you do while waiting for the real spring weather to kick in? I’ll tell you what we did. We brought out all the garden seeds to see what we still need to order for this year’s garden. We definitely need some new melon seeds and some green beans.We tentatively planned our first camping trip for the year. My husband bought some magnifying glasses to use to start a fire while we camp. The boys are going to love this one. We took a family walk while the boys rode their bicycles. I can never get enough of these moments. And this morning, we polished off the last bit of last year’s peaches. This makes me a little sad. I did not can enough peaches last year. The weather was crazy and the peach crop came in very early. It caught me off guard. I will not let that happen this year. Our home canned peaches are from our Farmers’ Market. My husband says it is like eating peach pie right out of the jar. Never again will I can so little.
Trying to keep up with my original commitment at the beginning of the year of finishing two projects per month, I have a report. I finally finished the baby cardigan. It was super easy and I am very happy with it. The pattern I used was a free pattern from Ravelry called Newborn Vertebrae. My very first cardigan! Hooray!!
I think I may go for a really easy project to complete one more before the month is out. I will not tell you exactly what it will be, but here’s a glimpse of the fabric. Can you guess what it wants to be when it grows up?
I hope today you are enjoying some sunshine and spending some time with loved ones.
