Our unseasonably warm weather took a dip downwards this past week. I'm worried about the flowering trees and my young budded flowers, many of which will be covered with sheets or beach towels tonight. We are expecting snow -- not much, but still -- snow? It won't stay. But it's a good time for a few inside things. Time to be cozy.
Time to finish that dreadfully difficult jigsaw puzzle. I got down to about 10 pieces and couldn't make them fit. (It was in that green tree on the right.) They all more or less looked the same and some could fit in multiple places. I actually messaged New Yorker puzzle guru Claudia Hill-Sparks of Mockingbird Cottage to talk me down on FB.
Then I turned around and looked back at the puzzle and it fell into place. No doubt about it -- these New Yorker puzzles are hard. But finishing is so rewarding!
Time for Netflix and telly. I almost cried when we finished watching "Schitt's Creek." I will miss these characters and this accpeting, gentle town in which they live. Watching these characters evolve over their six seasons was just lovely. I wasn't sure I'd like it after the first episode or two -- but oh, I do and I'll miss it! (You will note Lizzie on a lap. It doesn't happen often. And it doesn't last long. Head locks help.)
Spring is still popping here and will continue for a bit. Peter Rabbit is in his element!
My daffodils are looking good.
And they smell fabulous -- especially these! Are they nasturtium? So many varieties!
My lettuce is doing well and very nearly time to be divided and thinned out. That will be this weekend's chore!
Time to read -- I'm reading Rennie Airth's first "John Madden" mystery, "River of Darkness," and it's a good character. He's a post WWI veteran and Scotland Yard detective called in on a baffling case in a small town. Sometimes when I'm very lucky, I have a reading companion!
And sometimes, she's just a princess.
A few decor upgrades. Most of the bunnies are gone -- but not all!
And my vintage people are welcoming spring, too
Thee three mice are not by me -- I wish they were -- but I keep them out for inspiration. Right now I'm felting birds again.
So, it's is being a lovely spring, cozy, cheery, laid back.
Lizzie and I like it that way! We'll cozy down till it warms up!
And I hope that's soon!
