Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Saturday Thaw

Front yard full of slush as the snow thaws and spring tries to arriveSpring is trying to break through. The air feels different, more humid, a little warmer. The bird calls are changing to mating songs, the woodpeckers are drilling on the trees, and a few ants have started to appear in the house.

Last night it snowed. It was like a white sloppy rain. Today it thawed. Just enough to turn the snow into slush. Not enough to get rid of the white cover.

Perfect weather for getting sick.

When I left Son John in Idaho last Monday, he had the beginning of the flu. By Tuesday, his wife had it. Today DH Bob is sick. I'm not very optimistic about my changes of missing out on the fun.

Meanwhile I'm almost ready to start the heel on John's Basketweave Ribbing Sock.

If everyone's health cooperates, estimated sock completion and picture time is mid week.

Looking at the weather site, it won't be the first beautiful, balmy spring day that distracts me from knitting next week. By Tuesday the high temperatures are going to be back below freezing and there is snow in the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday.

I'm not packing the woolens away yet.

Ok, so they're sick, you flew on airplanes, and the seasons are changing? You're doomed! I predict much knitting time for you in the near future. Welcome back and good luck to you ~ hope you soar through the week in good health.

I sense a well deserved gentle scolding from Leslie.

Thanks. I feel better already.
