It's been quite a day or two.. Weatherwise, I think we have just had our annual "Ides of March storm". The last two days have given us just about every form of precipitation that there is.. rain, freezing rain, ice pellets, snow.. you name it. Today we woke to a fresh 6" or so of the white stuff... but I refuse to show any more "snow" pics! I've had enough so maybe if I ignore it, it will go away! (Ya think?) I'm hoping that this is our last storm and we will not see snow falling from the sky again until next December. (You listening, Mother Nature??) The forecast for the weekend is WARM temps- bring it on!! Woohooo!
Instead of showing you our recent snowfall I decided some spring-y pics were in order. This lovely bouquet of pink tulips is sitting in my kitchen, beckoning to spring.... I figured you'd rather look at pink than white... I had fun playing around with my macro lens. It has a very shallow depth of field, but it does make for interesting closeup work. Have you ever looked this closely at the center of a tulip?
One significant achievement this week - Laura has finished her Honours thesis. Done. Fini. Finito. Passed in. DONE! Hurray! I read, edited, read and re-read it... I'm almost as relieved as she is, that it is finally off her list... Well done, my darling...
On the sewing front, next up are some "Catch of the Day" bags for Quilt Canada and finishing my Spicy Spiral tablerunner... And I'm working away on this week's TAST Challenge...
Laura is heading home for the weekend and we hope to take in Sugarbush activities at Kings Landing on Saturday. So now I'm off to make a Lemon Cheesecake - a very simple recipe that requires no baking and goes in the freezer. She wanted one last time home and it didn't get done.. Perhaps I'll share the recipe tomorrow if anyone is interested...?
