April 4

We've moved on from the tricks and pranks earlier this week. Owen feels the score was settled unfairly in my favor and plans to up the ante for next year, so I guess I better plan ahead!

I've spent the last few days on a totally utilitarian project, a gift for a pregnant friend, so no photos until after she receives it. I will say that it's going very quickly and using up a bunch of yarn I found while rearranging stash. This is good.

We really and truly are moving full-speed into spring. Yes, there are still dirty mountains of snow at the edges of parking lots and such, but most of the grass is exposed and the birds are all in their spring-time rituals. The cardinals are talking up a storm. This happens to be one bird noise I can mimic pretty well, so I like to chat with them. Of course, if they are fooled at all, they probably think I'm another male cardinal moving into their territories.

You probably noticed that I did not Flash My Stash this year. I thought about it. But I just couldn't get it together. I'm working slowly toward my goal making my entire stash fit on the allotted shelves, with no little bonus boxes tucked in this closet or under that desk. It's a slow process because I'm not willing to just give it all away willy-nilly. And I need to spend some time re-sorting and tidying up boxes and bins soon. I know there are some boxes with empty space on the shelves while yarn sits in bags out and about and it could be stowed. So, maybe while I'm tidying up, I'll take the camera down and snap a few pictures. And possibly be ready to Flash on April 1, 2009.

Pictures of knitting soon! I promise. Or maybe of spinning. Or some of each.

I saw a picture of daffodils on someone's blog. I don't know where they were located, but it sure wasn't here. I do have little green things sprouting here and there right up against the house. I'd check my lone daffodil patch to see if it's sprouting, but it's too muddy between here and there.

Given Owen's intelligence, and the fact that he has a year to plan, I suggest you might want to think about booking your 4/1/09 motel reservation now. Just sayin'
