Good morning, friends.
I hope you are well.
I believe that Ole Man Winter left us yesterday...
hopefully for good!
And on his way out he gave us a wintry mix of rain and snow.
Luckily, temperatures were warm enough
that none of it accumulated on the ground.
I did notice, while doing late evening chores,
a tiny pocket of snow in the crook of the red maple
tree behind the barn...
the tree where the guineas roost for the night.'
Around here, that is known as the "onion snow".
And now it's time to plant our onions.
I am so ready to get back into the garden again.
Gardening helps make life seem a little more normal.
I spent most of the day in my sewing room,
sewing another batch of masks for the ER nurses.
The day passed quickly and by the end I had
accumulated 2 dozen masks.
I plan to finish another dozen this morning and
then drive them down to town where I will drop them
on The Littles' front porch.
The hardest part will be leaving without ringing the doorbell.
It's been way too long since I have had a hug
from these little ones.
Thank goodness for Face Time!
As a break from sewing I made a pot of chicken/vegetable soup
and a batch of buttermilk biscuits.
To me, there's nothing more satisfying than a warm
buttermilk biscuit with butter and homemade jam.
I've been deep-cleaning the house... a room each day.
And when I am finished making surgical masks,
I plan to completely re-organize my sewing room.
I'll show you before and after photos as I progress.
Right now, it looks as though a bomb went off in the room...
much like my kitchen looks when I cook!
Thank goodness Jack is willingly my sous chef
and cleans up as I go.
Now, I just need to find a sous-seamstress!
Hopefully some nicer weather comes our way today
so that I can get outside and take some photos...
and write a proper blog post!
