spring is sprung


for one day, at least.....
Last thursday it was 65degrees and sunny here. The crocus decided to make an appearance and it was wonderful.

Now it's 40 degrees and raining. Welcome to spring in the pacific NW. It'll be back, I'm sure.
By the way, have I ever said how much I HATE spring ahead? When you have to get up at 4am, it just hurts.

Not much progress to report on rams and yowes, I'm afraid. My time was sucked dry by house stuff this week and shopping for it. I bought a faucet for the laundry room, and all of the towel bars, as well as shopped for lighting, plumbing and house numbers. The good news is, the permits are only waiting for one more thing. We expect them to pick them up this week and get digging probably next week. Check out my rant over on squiggi builds a house if you dare.......

I do have to share this awesome fountain. This is just the bottom piece of it, which is about 5' across and weighs about 1000lbs. (seriously, we had to get it out of the truck). It has 3 more large stacking pieces and 2 matching benches. It'll be amazing in the new landscaping and I'll guarantee I'll be the only kid on the block with one of these!











Today I finally got the rest of the yarn to keep working on the flight path KAL, and on friday, the little prince will start. Busy, busy.......

WOW. that's some fountain! And yes, we have the same sort of nonsense going on here...it will be in the 70s this week, but was 28 yesterday morning.

(and 4am? I thought I got up early at 5:15!)
