Owed to Spring

Oh, I know. There were so many other things that I should have done on a totally gratuitous day off school today. At least four of you must be guts for garters with me in mind. And I didn't even show you the most incredible giveaway that Simone gave away to me last week. I'll use her photo because mine would never do it justice. I have it in my schoolbag for random acts of celebration. Thank you, Simone. I'm still delighting in its beauty.

I'm going to suggest that my gay (can I till use that word in that sense?) abandon of the to-do list is owed entirely to Spring. This is where I was today, instead of being efficient. There were lambs and daffodils and many, many balls of wool. I bought two- balls of wool. Now I have three little shamrocks all ready for tomorrow, when I shall look at my to-do list. Promise...

Hooray for lovely yarns and a day out! Who cares about the list? I know, I sometimes do care about the list.
I wish you could pop over to Denver. It's warm like summer today! Sam made mud soup.

What a nice cheery give away you have won - I have some bunting lurking in a cupboard - maybe I will get it out this weekend just for fun. I think it's super efficient that your bunting is in your bag ready to whip out if a cause for celebration occurs! A bit Mary Poppins!

What does it mean to be "guts for garters"?
Your use of a spring day seems quite responsible.

There's something so deeply comforting about looking at lots and lots of beautiful yarn. It soothes my soul. Good for you -- I'm glad you went! I'm glad you saw lambs and daffodils. Your soul needed it :)
