it is a wonder what a bit of covering can/will do in keeping hands & finger warm. my hands were freezing this morning riding into work. I got a bit smarter on the way home a put on my gloves. mmm nice warm hands :o)
Mother Mallard was back on her nest this morning. I forgot the bread in my rush out the door. I was careful again to stay far enough away so se wouldn't hop off. I did get a look but she stayed. I hope the little ones come quickly and safely travel back to the wetland area.
I had a plan to stitch at A&T tonight (Ink Circle gathering) but was stymied by P letting me know he needed waterproof hiking boots for the off-site for school tomorrow. I had been putting getting new boots off all year. Got lucky as most of his hiking type of visits were on nicer days. I did get him a pair of garden boots for when they work in the food bank garden (which is on campus) as when it rains (Its Oregon so that means at least 80% of the time!). They were to visit a farm tomorrow but plans have changed and it will be a very wet (cause it is raining a lot – Hello Spring!) hike somewhere around town.
I did stop by and show off what Ive completed so far on Mother Maya and picked up a couple charts, Rosewood Manor’s Quaker Diamonds and PS Alphabet D, E & F. Both of these will be placed with my other “oh so want to do but will do my best to wait” charts :oP
I leave you with a pic of the duo, battling over the nip. They both love rolling in it and Lilith will gather the cloth with her front paws and “face plant”.
