First Day of Spring

One more day..one more day…I am wishing my life away.  The last winter program for the Historical Museum happens Tuesday (today yea!!!!)  I will be glad to get it over with.  This program has involved lots of work.  I made a slide show presentation. (Then and Now) I have a passel of things to drag out of the museum and get organized as a display. 

Far Guy got a new lumberjack shirt.  His volunteer uniform consists of jeans, a red and black checked flannel shirt, a hat to match, suspenders and red socks peeking above his boots.   Others participating in the program will be dressed in costumes.  They asked me who I was coming as..I replied..plain old me.  I wanted to sew a Prairie Dress over the winter..but it was just one of those things that never got done.  Me and sewing with a machine is a real stretch of my imagination.

I tried to sew some quilt squares yesterday..after six hours I have nothing to show for my efforts..I do not have the tools to keep the squares square.  The stupid sewing machine sits on my desk, for now it has won the battle..but I plan to win the war and will begin all over again one day soon. I might have to go buy some more material if I keep messing up. But it ain’t over til it’s over.

I have stacks of old photos all over..I am in the midst of scanning the last couple of batches for Forgotten Old Photos.  I will not have time to scan and research them over the summer, so all of that ground work is being laid now.

I have not worked on the Cousins Recipe Book at all lately..it is on my radar.  I had been working on it late at night.  I just want to get it over with!

After the dreaded program I will re evaluate everything…. I have bathroom tile to strip and reseal..and bathroom drawers to clean out…and a garage to straighten up.  If it ain’t one thing it is forty million others.

Chance had his first deer tick today, it was not stuck, it was just crawling in his fur.  We saw Robins in town but none out here yet.  Although “she who sees robins first” probably saw them last week.

Happy First Day of Spring! :)

  2. Happy First day of Spring to you. All though it really feels like summer here (Southern Eastern WI). It is so warm here I may have to turn on the air conditioning today - expecting temps near 80. What happened to Spring?

  3. Yes, Happy Spring! We have robins here, along with lots of other birds. I know you have worked hard on that Winter Program, and I suspect it will go very well. I hope you have a great time!

  5. I can't draw a straight line with a ruler, so I know how you feel regarding sewing.
    Which I am not good at either.
    Hope your program today is a great success! I know it will be.
    Have a wonderful day!

  6. I wish I could come to the program. It sounds fascinating. The sad thing is that the attendees will have no clue how much went into the making of the program! But... I do. Congrats on all of your hard work!

  9. Happy Spring - when I was at mom and dad's (just up the hill) on Saturday they had 18 or more robins all in their yard - tried to get a picture but then they flew away! Welcome spring!

  10. Connie....Thank you for your answer to the bird feeder. I will look at a Tractor supply store near us. Good luck tonight. Harriet

  11. I admire your persistence with the quilt squares. There are so many things I want to do that, as soon as one resists my initial efforts, I just move on to the next.

    Here in Ohio when the time changed last weekend, we apparently sprang ahead 2 months instead of 1 hour--it's been mid-May ever since. Projected high today: 84. Seriously?

    Hope things slow down for you after the program!

  12. Yes indeed! It is a happy day. I always feel bad laughing at another person's inability to "draw as straight line with a ruler" because I can't do it myself. So I am not laughing at you -- just commiserating. I am similarly challenged, which explains why my one and only quilt was a "crazy quilt.

  15. Ain't it grand??? I love spring and summer.

    That's one terrific scenic shot there sweetie.

    God bless and have a tremendous day!!!

  16. Once long ago, I enjoyed sewing, baking, crafts, gardening etc. No more. When John and I walk through a store, we laugh that there is nothing that even interests us any more!
    Hope it went well today, Connie.

  17. True. If it ain’t one thing it is forty million others.
    Hey, you can't ever say you're bored, right? ;)
    Early, early spring. At this rate maybe it won't be so cold at the museum this year in the spring and fall. ;)

  18. Well by now your presentation is over and you can rest to start doing the next thing. I am on spring break and I can't move fast enough to catch up on what all I need to get done. I like wearing the lumber jack look. I also wear Hawaiian shirts on Fridays at school because that is just what I always do.

  19. I am still chuckling over the dream on the last post, poor Far Guy, in trouble and he doesn't even know it.

    Hope all went well with your presentation, if they know what's good for them, they will listen to you, LOL.

  22. Oh those nasty deer ticks. Constant source of worry. Don't want to hear that Chance gets sick again.
