1st Garden Update of 2019

3-18-2019, was 50°F, full of sunshine, yet quite cool and super windy. My husband thought it was a good day to start our garden. He brought home a bag of onions sets to start our gardening season off right.
We’ve decided not to have a very big garden. Just a few basic veggies to give us something to tend to and also enjoy the tasty rewards.
Onions are always our first crop to plant. They fair well during the goofy temperature changes until the weather calms down and evens out for the year.
I, however, do not fair well during the cooler and windy days, so I layered on some clothes, put on a knit-hat under my cap and my garden gloves and went out to help my fella start our garden.
I’m happy to have the onions planted and hopefully we’ll have a fresh mess for a nice 1st batch of bruschetta this May.
Happy Gardening!
Wishing you all sunshine and happiness!

Distracted – ice & snow

IMG_9095Let me start off with a disclaimer: I realize that there’s regions snowed totally under and you are free to snicker at my snow & ice photos. My warm postive thoughts are with you all. cloudhug Please remember though, that for us, this below zero icy cold snowy weather is still miserable, dangerous and beautiful.

IMG_9068It iced earlier this week and it’s snowed for a couple of days. I find it a bit ironic how I started buying seeds and posting about deciding to have a garden this year and then this crazy weather hits… ~bummer~

Our electric and internet has been blinky, I’m working on crafts and trying to keep myself distracted from not being able to blog or surf and stuff. 

I wanted to try and make a post to let you all know that I’m still around. I’ll be by to visit and comment whenever I can.

I hope you all are keeping warm and safe during these freezing days of winter.snowmanspflwrsln

In my 1/12/2015 Monday Mix post, I said I’ll give updates on my blanket when I’ve made significant progress.
I’m happy to say that I feel I’ve made significant progress. I was able to get 4 skeins done so far and my blanket is 26 inches long.
Hopefully, it’ll be finished by mid to late Spring.
🙂

yarn1I was doing a bit of organizing in my craft room by putting my yarn into large bags… well, I was beyond surprised to see that I think I might be a yarn-hoarder. lol

So, how about you, have you ever surprised yourself to discover you had a bigger supply of ‘some thing’ than you thought you had?

Happy crafting!t6027
