The weather is a tease today. Mild temperatures (relatively) and intermittent rain have melted snow and water is running down the house drain spouts. It is spring...momentarily for sure. In the old days people thought these sudden swings in mid-winter temperatures caused colds or flu.
It is enough to entice me outside though. I linger over my few chores...emptying the ash can, picking up some of the doggie do in the back yard and extend my shovelling around the walkways. The snow is mostly slushy and heavy to lift. It is too slippery though for ball playing with the dogs...with these big dogs I am mindful of their hips and joints. Murphy, the Labrador, puts her heart and soul into the ball retrieving and I think she would be especially susceptible.
Yesterday I spent the afternoon in my sewing room. I am making a crib quilt for the new grandson.
Here is a picture of my quilt sandwich...
I finally finished the granny squares afghan. Episodes of Justified and Homeland saw me through!
