It has been raining here on and off for about a week. The ground is saturated and everything is beginning to green up. Only the little oak in the back yard still clings to its brown leaves. It is always the last to come around to budding. I saw some dogwoods blooming this morning on the way in to work. I’ve been working on a crochet scarf out out knitpicks laceweight and DH’s corn socks. Both projects are going well – I’m still not yet ready to begin anything complex. Work is taking too much mental and physical energy for anything complex. I’ll take pictures of the progress soon… Bug is well and talking up a storm these days. I can’t believe she will be 3 years old in less than two months.
