Spring has Sprung in Alaska!

Gratuitous kitten photo to start with though....just cuz she's so very photogenic. I have NOTHING to show in the knitting dept. today. Still slogging through the last bit on the Forest Canopy Shawl. Hope to finish tonight and block tomorrow. I will definately be gifting this one to my good friend MK for her upcoming birthday!

The conference last Friday went well. I did feel somewhat disgruntled though. During my opening speech and the speaker introductions and somewhere between the techy troubleshooting stuff, I looked out into the audience and saw LOTS of knitting going on...and because I was so dang busy...was able to knit not one stitch myself. Oh well. Soooon though, very very sooon, I'll have big blocks of knitting time.

The weather has been stellar the past few days. It hit 60 degrees on my deck today...57 degrees per the bank thermometer in town....gorgeous blue skies...lots and lots of sunshine. I can feel my poor Vitamin D depleted body soaking in the rays to make more of this vital hormone/vitamin ;0 aaaahhhh! And look, in the garden....the BULBS (and other things) are bursting through everywhere!

But along with leaves and greenery...the rapid snowmelt brings MUDSEASON! THIS

is my driveway about messy...I'll be throwing straw down to soak up the water/mudbog over the next few days.

I'm on day 2 of my 3 in a row days off (yay!) laundry is caught shopping is done. Tomorrow, clean out the flower beds.

Here's another uber cute pic today of the rapidly growing Miss Bella Blue. She is such a character!

Until next time...Knit happy!

Your driveway!!! OMG. I will never complain about the mud at my house again. I've forgotten what it is like to have a dirt driveway.

Enjoy the bulbs. Glad spring is FINALLY here.

Cute, cute kitty. I do NOT envy you the mud. And I'm not getting any knitting done, either.

Bella is so cute, look at those beautiful whiskers. Oy, I guess I shouldn't complain when my driveway is covered with leaves.

If ever I have SEEN a gorgeous kitten, it is YOURS! The blue eyes...they mesmerize me. How do you get anything done EVER? I would just play with that cat all day long. And take pictures of her.
I have only known cats who hide all day. Kinda like vampire cats or something. Probably why I'm a dog person.
Anyway Sadie terrorizes cats, which is why she found her home with me. The poor cats she used to live with had stopped eating and were losing their HAIR. ?!? Sadie is a monster puppy.
I haven't tried to clean up my garden beds yet...that is the worst task EVER in my book!
