how did that happen so fast? all of a sudden, one night last week, the frogs croaked. the sound came from the little creek down the road, it was dark. that is how i know spring is close. then the smells, light and sweet late at night and early mornings. yeah!
the official first day of spring we had snow flakes, big soft flakes, for about half an hour, then rain, finally sun. yes, spring is here. the great northwest doesn't give into the season gently, it sputters and spits and then, eventually, eases out and lets all of us breathe a sigh of relief and don our t-shirts and shorts. not quite yet, but soon.
how is everyone? huh? i can't hear you! i hope fine, i know it's hard coming out of hibernation, facing the sunshine, blink, blink. except for those of you already in the sunshine, i cannot imagine living with sun always, well, i can imagine it if i lived in hawaii - love that tropical weather! green lush always warm, sweet air. ahhhh. anyway, i have been working hard on jens pregnancy book, geesh, am i still working on this? it is done, it is big. have a look for yourselves:
this is big, 3" thick, those of you who have a book that i have made realize that each page is heavy, thick, what is the right word? each of the 28 pages are 1/6" thick. i think sean might have to carry it around for jen, it may be too heavy for her, with only 2 months to go! lol. now on with the nursery walls! and an easter album kit, i hope!
thanks everyone for taking the time to visit my etsy shop, hey, jessie has opened her etsy too! the storefront is there but her items are still in the process of being gathered and assembled. her shop is called TheSecretGarden
she spent all saturday night and until 4 sunday morning getting it set up, she is anxious to start listing her little pieces of art,(which are adorable!) but, homework does have priority, and 4 o'clock in the morning is too late to stay up, jess! geesh! 16 years old, who's the mother here?
well, it is close to 4am now, my bedtime, lol. are you still up paula? get to bed! good night all, i will be working on some kind of kit for the blog and maybe some tags for etsy? hummm. that is, after working on the nursery. wow, 2 more months and our lives will be changed forever, once again. lovin' it!
good night, all my dedicated bloggers! thanks to you who have partaken of my offered goodies, something new is in the air - it's spring!
