Monday Musings...

It was the busiest of times, it was the laziest of times. It was a time of great accomplishment, it was a time of great loafing. I got up at the crack of dawn on a non school day to take the boys to the dentist. (+1) I made a hot lunch for me and the little men. (+1) I washed the dog and all his bedding. (+2 - the dog is wiley!) I sat on the couch with my friends and watched a million episodes of various reality tv shows (-17). I did make some progress on my new shawl pattern. Here's a good representation of the color.

And here is what the lace edging looks like so far. I've thrown in a lifeline and I'm trying the body pattern that I think will look good. I've got my fingers crossed.

In the stores (if not in the outdoors) my favorite flowers are in bloom. I love any form of daffodil. Yellow, white, any mix in between. There's a picture in my mind's eye of the hills of the Cincinnati Nature Center covered in daffodils at Easter time. Makes me homesick. So I bought myself a little bit of sunshine that I'll share with you.
