There’s sixty one days until spring. I can make it. There are seed catalogs to check out, orders to place, seed starting to be planned, and plant sales need to be marked on the calendar.
One Amaryllis is close to blooming, two are just starting to grow, and the Walking Iris are still in bud format. These pretty flowers will help keep me motivated.
I finished up the last of the organizing projects, and did a little machine embroidery. A friend had a birthday so I made a square with ‘Friends Forever’ on it and sent it with her card and also did a gardening journal cover with old jean material. The notebook inside can be switched out when full.
Reading has been good because I just finished Robert Parker’s latest Spenser book by Ace Atkins, “Someone to Watch Over Me.” The mystery part of a Spenser book is never that deep, but the snarky dialogue is ever so appreciated especially with apple crumb pie and coffee.
The weather has been unusual for a New England January – rather mild temps and rain, lots of rain. The rain sure pointed out that I need a load of topsoil for some low areas and some grass seed because of the drought last year.
The new iPhone 12s are up and running. They certainly are fast, and TMobile coverage rocks after Verizon and At&T.
Registration to express interest in the vaccine opens up this Friday for everyone over 65 in NH. 300,000 folks in that category all trying to express interest will probably make for an interesting online experience. 🙂
It’s going to be a quiet winter week here so I think I’ll order some fabric and get started on a quilt top I’ve been thinking about doing. That should keep me out of trouble.
I’m borrowing a closing line from Ginger, one of our more humorous regulars – think positive, test negative. Stay well folks and best wishes for getting a vaccine appointment.
