Hooray – we survived winter! With blizzards and Nor’easters coming one right after another, we moved over 92″ of snow. That’s a lot of snow, friends. While there is still snow on the ground, it is mostly on the edges or where the snow blower left large banks.
But spring is here and we have had a great couple of days with 60-70 degree temperatures and bright sunshine.
My husband and I, and a large majority of New Hampshire residents, headed out yesterday. We drove 30 minutes to Hampton Beach to soak up the sun, walk the beach, and just enjoy being outside – blue sky, blue water, and sandy beach. It doesn’t get much better than that.
There was a young man sitting on his car playing guitar with the music wafting on the sea breeze. Skate boarders were enjoying themselves. And, dogs of every size and shape were on leashes enjoying being outside. I’ve never seen so many dogs. It was like we had tickets to a dog show.
Horses and riders were also out and can enjoy the beach until Memorial Day. A mom even found that a baby stroller would make a good recliner while she caught some rays waiting for her family to return. Another guitar player was enjoying his beach chair while sharing his music, and kites were flying everywhere you looked.
Wonderful doesn’t cover it, but it’s a good start.
Once home, I did a little vertical sashing on my small Amsterdam quilt. I still have horizontal sashing, quilting, and binding to do.
I’ll continue to work on it, but in between Master Gardener meetings and working outside. I can’t garden, but there’s lot of clean up work to do.
It feels good to just say, be, or work outside. Here’s to spring. ❤️
