Thursday afternoon...had a wonderful time looking at decorating books with my dear sisters-in-law, Ana and Leah. We had the windows open, drank Darjeeling, laughed and copied things for our homemaking notebooks.
Friday...I saw my first Robins of the Spring!! One of my very favorite of all the sounds of nature is that "tweet, tweet, twitter, tweet" song that Robins sing on summer evenings. I am so glad to hear them singing again. (The picture is a little blurry because he wouldn't let me get very close with the camera. :))
Spent Friday putting a new door in the garage of a family from church. It was much larger than the original, so we had to tear out the existing frame and cut the opening larger. It looks really nice now that it's done. :)
You can see the first little fuzzy green things coming up around the house. This is a little hollyhock leaf trying to crawl its way out of last year's leaves. It gives one hope that soon we'll be enjoying many more little plants. I saw a picture of blooming lilacs in a book this morning and it made me long for May! :)
