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)

Various Thoughts on March 16

This morning the female bluebird was sitting in a nearby tree while the male stood guard on the top of the nest box. How wonderful to have them back and know they intend to use the nest box. Assuming this is the same pair that used the nest box last year, they fledged a total of nine hatchlings. I'd love to have them do the same this year.

No socks on the needles. I can't remember the last time I went a week without having a pair of socks on the needles. Instead, I've been knitting on the Lavold sweater. The front and the back are both almost up to the underarm. When I get there, I'll post a picture. If life cooperates, it will be soon.

Lately I've been wasting time at Jig Zone , Jigsaw Puzzles Online. After trying a few unsatisfactory puzzle sites, I came to the conclusion that doing jig saw puzzles on line was not fun. Then, last December someone on a knitting list changed my mind by posting a Knitting related puzzle from the Jig Zone puzzle of the day and I got hooked.

It is always so wonderful to have birds nest where you can watch. I'll bet they are the same pair. I love Jigsaw puzzles but gave them up when I started blogging. I'm going to check out the knitting one you suggested.
