And Out Like a Lamb
You know that old saying about March … “in like a lion, out like a lamb”. Our March came in like a lion and went out like a lamb. We had freezing rain, sleet and snow at the beginning of the month and a delightful day at the end … breezy but warm with a high that flirted with the 70’s. Today is windier but should still be in the 60’s with sunshine to help warm things up. A fabulous day ahead.
Today is my first day back to my normal routine, and while I’m looking forward to that (as well as getting caught up on a lot of the housework that I just didn’t have the energy or ambition to do), I have to admit that I’m sure missing my Ts this morning!
One of the first things I’m doing now that things are back to “normal” here at Chez Nana is to get out and walk with my neighbor Lois. I have to admit that without a walking partner, it’s been way too easy for me to put off my daily walking.
Yesterday was Opening Day … and here in Cardinal Nation, that’s a pretty big deal … but not as big a deal as Opening Day at Busch Stadium. We used to go to the Opening Day game, but it’s gotten almost impossible to get tickets for that game … so we watch on TV … where we can guarantee that it will be warm and dry. Ha!
DH has offered to keep me company on my trip to a quilt shop about an hour up the highway … I’ve got a one-day quilting retreat coming up next week, and I want to start a quilt for our bed. I’ve long wanted to make a quilt for our bed, but for the longest time, I was drawing a blank on what pattern I wanted to use. I finally found the perfect one! It’s a block called “Kiss” (appropriate, no?) … and it creates a secondary pattern when the blocks are assembled into a top (which I love!). It is a simple block so it should piece up fairly quickly (I hope).
Happy April Fools Day!
