Marvelous Monday Update 4/5/2010

WEATHER
It's been some crazy weather we're having! One day it's 85F, and two days later temps are down to 60. One day it's sunny and spring/summer-like, a few days later we're threatened with severe storms with hail. Today is sunny and 70's with expected thunderstorms tonight.


STITCHY STUFF
I've *almost* finished another line on LK's ABC Lessons:



NATURE NEWS
When I walked around the corner of my house, I saw this:

Of course I *had* to run back in the house to get my camera. This guy has been very brave. He comes right up on my back step, and does scamper away as fast as I'd expect. He just sat on the stump the entire time I was photographing him... eating his nut.

Then I walked around another corner of my house and I saw this:

My daffodils are just starting to bloom and the tulips will be opening soon. More and more periwinkles are blooming. Guess what?! I saw my *first* robin over the weekend. :) In my book, spring is officially here!

Our weather has been crazy too. Last week we went from the low 80's on Tues to mid 50's on Thurs.

The stitching looks good...nice progress.

We came back from vacation and all the daffodils on the west side have flowered! I need to cut some and bring them inside.

Ah - love the squirrel - we love to see lots of them in The Netherlands when we're on holidays! Looks like Spring has sprung (finally!) :)
