Weekend Happenings, Springing Forward

Well here it is winter again. The temps tonight will drop well below freezing. Some of the Bradford Pear trees have been hit by the cold and their milky white blossoms have turned a yucky light brown. That’s just how it is in East Tennessee. You never know what kind of weather you will get. The redbuds are also blooming but they seem undisturbed by this little cool spell Mother Nature has thrown at us. It is also time for the Dogwood blooms to emerge and I am holding my breath that they don’t get bit by this cold weather.

Thinking of flowers and blooms and colors, I decided to get some seeds started inside in small pots so that they would be ready to plant outside in a month or two. If we wait until the fear of frost is over, to plant outside, we could be waiting for a couple of months for blooms. I think planting them indoors and getting a good root system going makes for better plants once you put them outside. Plus it is a way to get spring going inside the house. I worked on them Sunday and now I have them spread all over the house trying to find spots that will give them ample light. I will let you know how they do. I planted Marigolds and Zinnias, two of my favorites for summer.

I had to move Zsa Zsa over a bit to get these little seedlings into the light.

I was feeling very creative over the weekend. I pulled out these big needles and made a scarf. The yarn was very thick and it knitted up fast. It will be good for next winter. I am wondering though, if maybe I am procrastinating by not working on the temperature blanket. I have it almost finished and like I mentioned before I am just over it!!!! But I have to finish it. I must!!! It has grown into more than I can handle. I know I will love it when I am finished. I guess.

This will be so warm for winter.

I also made a hat. I have been working on doing some hats to donate to the Cancer Center where my sister gets chemo. There is a basket in the infusion waiting area and people often donate hats, bandanas, headbands etc. This one is a bit thick and might be too warm for spring, but who knows since our weather is so fickle. I am working on some that will be a lighter yarn and will be good through spring.

I made a blueberry cobbler over the weekend and did the meal prep for my breakfast burritos. I love blueberry cobbler and I put it in the refrigerator to have for the week.

I am reading a couple of good books. All in all a pretty lazy weekend, except for that jolt into Daylight Saving Time, I am okay with lazy weekends because my work is about to be crazy and will continue that way through summer. Any down time I can get now I will happily take it.

Kitty Kitty.

How was your weekend?

Always remember

Lover your day your way!!!!!
