Royal Wedding....Are you watching?

Wow, this week has just flown by. I keep thinking today is Wednesday, but it's actually Thursday and that makes tomorrow Friday! Yippee!Tomorrow is the Royal Wedding....are you getting up to watch it? Natalie and I are getting up at 2:00am (darn that Pacific Time zone). I just made some scones and we are having the Wedding Blend tea from Murchies to go along with them.
Enjoy your weekend!

Easter Chicks!

Look what I found in my backyard....Easter Chicks! Aren't they the cutest? You can make them too. The tutorial can be found on Myrtle & Eunice. This little guy was hiding in the pansies.

This little blue guy is saying "Hi" from way over there on the rock.

Here he is again, hanging around on a branch!

I think these two like each other....

Here's some more.

You still have time to make some of your own for Easter! Have fun!

Shawl Knitting

I have a friend who has made several shawls. I like the idea of shawls, but have never made a shawl and I'm not even sure I'm a shawl wearing person. I thought I would give it a go, make one and see what happens. I decided to make the Simple Yet Effective Shawl using Marks and Kattens Fame Trend yarn. So far so good! It might just be the perfect thing to wear on those cool summer evenings sitting in the back yard. Have a wonderful week!

Not Quite There

I hate to dwell on this, but our weather is still crummy. On Sundays I run through the trails buy our house and the trilliums there are just starting to bloom...about 3 weeks late, along with everything else. Hopefully things will turn around soon.
We had one nice day this past weekend and everyone took advantage of that...even Chester our cat!
The Mr. put in another window, 8 down and 17 more to go. It's amazing how windows can change the look of a room. Where ever you may be, I hope you have a wonderful week. Cheers!

Billy Elliot the Musical. Seattle

Natalie and I had a great time in Seattle. We drove to Bellingham Washington to catch the Amtrak to Seattle. However due to the huge amount of rain we have been having in this area, mud slides covered the tracks in some areas and buses were provided. Not as fun as the train, but at least we got there. Billy Elliot was fantastic, we laughed and cried.
Happy April....I hope you become more spring like soon. Have a great week!
