Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Sorry for not blogging in the month of February.  Dealing with some health issues with mom, unpacking items from the shop, and working around my least favorite season winter.  During the month of February, I crocheted a new cake blanket made with Caron Cakes Rum Raisin Yarn, and my dog Ginger decided to make herself comfortable on it.

We had some nice warm spells and I was able to take some decorations from the holidays outside and put my new close line reel outside.  Now winter is back with two enormous snow storms from last week and this week it’s been crazy.  With this lovely snow, I’ve been cleaning up stuff, throwing stuff out, working with some cake yarn, and enjoying nature outside.  Ever since I’ve added this bird feeder outside,  there’s been more birds, squirrels, and rabbits outside to see.  With the snow these guys have been limited to what they can eat, so it’s interesting seeing what’s going to come on the deck in the backyard.

Now I’m craving for some warm weather and looking forward to seeing what spring and summer has to offer.
