It's Spring in the Ozarks Today
(if you are visiting me from the blog party please also visit my post and giveaway here I will draw the two winners sometime in early morning Feb. 1st)
Last night on the 9 pm news, the weatherman said we are now at our lowest temp-as we will be climbing threw the night and today. He was right we woke up 60 degrees and are headed towards 75 degrees-is that wild or what?
The spring bulbs are already confused and are popping threw the ground already-not good, and the birds are singing away as if it was spring time. I don't even need a jacket outside this morning.
The air is very thick and heavy as well, hopefully tomorrow we can get some much needed rain here. In a couple days though we will be back to normal temps-low in the 20s.
This morning, I think I will make some more animal critters soap-but in different colors. Thinking purple perhaps since I am using lavender eo. am also going to make some mini heart guest soaps, I have a few different heart molds-and need to get a few hearts up in my shop for valentines.
My craft room is now pretty organized and I can actually see the floor in spots, and get to things-which is a biggie. Next up will be to wash down and oil my rug loom, and two spinning wheels, do some dusting in there, and clean the floor as best I can-anxious to get started back on the crazy quilt block I did, and finish making it into a pillow. Also want to get started on my January block of the month for the civil war quilt I am following along with on Barabara Brackmans civil war blog.
Since it is so warm out there today, I will be taking a long walk, and hopefull I can get Nikita to take a short walk too, she has not been wanting to for a week now.
Off to get going on my day-enjoy yours as well.
Here is one of my favorite photos of Nikita, taken several years ago. This fenced in area is the length of our entire front of the house, with an overhang over the front of the house-so she always has a huge space, along with shade if she wants it. She has been part of our family since the summer of 1998, so she is an old lady now.
