My hyacinth blooms are gone and the tulips drooped and died. It's time to buy more. Valentine's Day is a good time to buy flowers! Onward to the floral department!
It is SO cold here. I am so looking forward to a spot of spring weather soon. It will feel so good to pad around the neighborhood when the icebergs are gone.
Yesterday the high school girl that I am mentoring stopped by after school. I am supervising her sophomore project. She created her plan in September and it involves learning to knit and creating items to give away. She's a very busy young lady. She's in about a million clubs and she participates in sports, too. She's down to the wire with this knitting project and she simply does not have enough time to knit. When she told me all the things she has on her plate I was filled with sympathy. I realized again that knitting cannot be rushed and that's why I like it. I gave her an easy hat pattern (she was struggling with five double-pointed needles) and I hope she doesn't lose sleep as she winds up her work. Yikes!
Here is one of Kelli's good babies, getting a big nose-bending smooch from Granny! I am hoping the cowboy boots I ordered for Kelli arrive today!
Soon the grape hyacinths in Jeff's front lawn will pop up. Last year, I snatched them up. Don't they smell delicious?
Oh! The poetry coffee house was wonderful. Many students said, "Thank you so much!" and when they were reading their poetry by candlelight (little battery powered lamps) we all relaxed and enjoyed a break from the hustle and bustle of the day.
I hope Kelli likes her new boots. Do you think she will?
Hooray for the weekend! Whew!
