Is it Spring Yet?
The signs are there! The migrating orioles returned this weekend. I’ve been expecting them with our record setting high temperatures lately so I was not too surprised to see one at the feeder. The males return first and the females will follow in about two weeks. The hummingbird numbers are also increasing each day.
It was a busy weekend around here, but I did manage to get the blocks sewn together and the borders applied to the Disappearing Hourglass quilt. It went together very easy even though there are many bias edges to it.
We had the children’s school auction this weekend and the doll uniform went really well, as it does each year.
We celebrated a birthday with one of the grandsons yesterday. I was responsible for the cake. This child LOVES to put Tapatio hot sauce on everything so I did a cake that fit his likes perfectly. He got quite a kick out it.
This has been a year where it seems like it is one sickness after another in the family. From talking to others, it sounds like it is not isolated to us. I am just eager to get it out of here and move on into the healthier summer months. Our 18 year old granddaughter has been in the hospital since yesterday on IV’s while they are ruling out appendicitis. We are hoping that it is not and she will be released tomorrow.
I hope the warmer temperatures are finally reaching to the frozen areas and that the hope of spring is on everyone’s mind.
