N has a new hobby. He has become ever so slightly obsessed with origami. He has been folding lots of things and even went to a class at the library. His current obsession is paper cranes. He intends to fold 1000. Until he is done or has moved on to something else I suspect our flat surfaces will look like this.
The other day I went to see if the flowers on the south side of the house had started to open yet. I was so pleased to see that they had. There is no more sure sign of spring than daffodils. Now if we could get a few warm days in a row.
I have not been very good lately about keeping up with my usual podcasts. I don’t seem to spend as much time with my ipod as I used to and I have been completely remiss about keeping up with what’s new out there. Well the other day I watched Snappy Stitches (an excellent video cast) and she mentioned the Must Stash Podcast. I had a bit of time to download the few episodes that are out and watch them. I really enjoyed them. The hostesses are pleasant and they churn out finished objects so quickly. I look forward to their next episode and highly recommend you give them a try.
And finally yesterday Pumpkin said she had a hard time trying to picture how large a container it would take to hold $400 in pennies. Well it is a plastic 5 gallon water bottle I’ve had for nearly 30 years. I took a really lousy photo of it with a yardstick to give you an idea of how tall it is. The junk behind it is my UFO pile. Oops, probably shouldn’t have mentioned that.
