~It IS Spring, Right?~

This is what we woke to this morning. 

Yes, the cold, white stuff was three inches deep. We have now had more snow in the month of March than in all the winter months combined this year. My poor forsythia- it looks so cold all huddled in it's snowy blanket!

However, the boys were not one bit sad- 
this means snowballs!

(sorry these pictures aren't the best- they were taken through the window)

Do you notice there is a monkey in the yard?
He was doing his best to fill the fire-pit in with snow.

It seems there has been more spring inside than outside this week. And where I live, this is very unusual!

Here is a little 'spring' something I made as a birthday gift for a very dear friend.
I've made these before (all different designs), but it's been a good nine months since and it took way longer to get through than anticipated. I'm eager to make another one right away so I can better remember how I've done it and improve upon it.

So here it is 'leaning' . . .

and here it is 'hanging'.

And a card of course.
(three March birthdays down, three more to go!)

On a separate note:
Things are really tough right now, in just about every way.
Any prayers for myself and my family would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all! I hope your day is much more 'spring-like' than mine!



  1. omgoodness.....My daughter told me we might be in store for some of the white stuff from Calgary.....ugggg!!!!

    Hang in there girl;
    ...Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass...Psalms 37:7

    As my daughter reminded me last night " Mom, I feel I should tell you that you need to have more faith in God".... Gulp!!!! Hubby is still out of work and our resources are almost evaporated....furnace just had to be replaced and the basement flooded......

    So I hear you.... God hears your hearts, don't worry!!!
    He has promised to not leave us or abandon lets hang on to that one together shall we....


  2. Not snow!

    I will keep you in my thoughts.
    Stay strong and know that these days one day will pass.

    Take care of yourself.
