Showery Sunday - Hanging at Home

Happy March. It is raining here in Northern California, something that we definitely need. When I left town for Quebec on Feb. 10, the hills around our house were still slightly brown and the trees, which loose their leaves, were still bare. When I got back on Feb. 23...the hills around here were dressed in green velvet...it is like a scene out of Ireland with the green, green hills. And the trees have started to flower the pink and white flowers that come before the green & red leaves of the crab apple/cherry trees. I love this time of the year, because when the stores start stocking their Easter eggs - that is what I think of when I look around at the landscaping around my neighborhood. With the pick & white flowering trees, the purple flowering bushes and the first hints of California poppies and other flowers...it is beautiful. So...the rains that we have been getting and is in the forcast for the rest of the week is needed to continue this green!

DH and younger son drove to a city outside of Sacramento for a Sunday morning hockey game. Older son and I are at home. He is missing hockey practice this morning (might go to the later one) due to the cold/flu he still is dealing with. We are trying to rest him up because he/his team is going to the District Championship in Seattle next weekend and I don't want him to get any sicker. This cold/flu is not fun. We don't feel terribly horrible, but we are all feeling like we just don't have any energy. It is a drag!

I got my Friendship Sampler RR in the mail, so it is on its way to the next stop - should be there on Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest. I have gone back to working on Shoo-fly and trying to find another little project, but just cannot decide what I want to do - yet, haven't looked hard enough through my stash. Oh, well...

Hope all is well with all reading - remember to Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often! Lisa

I'm glad that you are getting the rain that you need. We're getting more snow (that we definitely don't need!)

I'm sorry your DS is sick. I hope he feels better soon.

Have a great Sunday!

Lisa,
I'm also looking forward to the Spring bloom and warmer weather. We're supposed to get a snowstorm tonight. Right now it's a nasty mix of sleet and snow and rain. UGH! Quite dreary right now.

Rest and feel better!

Hugs,
Beth
