The trees are finally beginning to get tiny, green leaves on them. We are supposed to be in the low 90s this week. I could I suppose start some seeds. We worked on the garden beds and got the back yard flowerbeds cleaned. We really had planned to go visit the nursery that is in walking distance but it rained. Nice rain but too much to ignore. In the Central Valley, we don't get rain like Northern California. So I can mostly ignore it if I want to play outside, but this last storm was like real rain so I just hooked my current rug. Its called Mighty Whale, by Woodland Junction.
It looks really dark in this picture, Its not that dark. I have wanted to do this rug since I first started hooking rugs. I think I started hooking rugs in 2011 or so. I waited to hook rugs until I was done with homeschooling and could concentrate on learning all about it. I remember the first magazine I saw and it had Polly Minick and her rugs and that was all I wanted to do. I still had small kids and I was afraid my wool cutter would be used to cut construction paper and what ever else they thought they could cut. So I postponed it. I still have that magazine too. I had a copier and the kids were in AWANA and there was a counterfeiting scandal that happened with AWANA dollars, I am not accusing anyone of course, but I knew what would happen with a wool cutter.
We got the baby out of the room with the older boys and the older boys really thought up things to do.
When 911 happened. I was outside and our oldest son came running outside and said, "The twin towers have been attacked!" I looked at Ron and said, "How does he know? We don't have a T.V.?" We didn't have a T.V. but someone had given him a broken one and he fixed it and he had it in his closet. Unknown to me. I think that was the beginning of his life of being able to fix anything. (He has a You Tube channel and I watch him now fix anything broken but I think that TV was the first.)
Its spring and I start thinking of taking trips to the desert. I love seeing the cactus this time of year. I love watching them bloom. Plus can you tell? I miss my grand kids and their parents.
I hope you have a lovely week. Can you believe April is just around the corner too.
Thank you for stopping by,
This was my thought this morning. I have sat and stared out the window and thought about it.
