So my dear friends, today I sit down at the computer with absolutely no idea of what I am going to write. I have no plan for this post, only the feeling that it is time I write something. So I cannot tell you where this will lead to.
There, I’ve given you fair warning now, so let us proceed.
I do believe that at long last we have left winter behind us. It has been the most gorgeous and splendid winter you could possibly imagine! Since October the ground has been covered in a thick layer of glittering white snow, some days being so beautiful it just completely takes your breath away! There is nothing quite like a cold clear sunny day, with the temperature below -20 (Celcius) and snow everywhere, no words can really discribe how stunning the world looks on such a day! But after a few weeks even such beauty begins to lose some of it’s charm, and I am very pleased to report that spring seems to finally be here now! Most of the snow is gone, when you are out in the sun you can actually feel warm even without a jacket! Outside the window by which I am sitting now I can see birds hopping about on the ground with little twigs and other building material in their beaks. I just hope they don’t forget to be on their guard in their busy work, for I know there are three fluffy four-legged creatures who have basically been refusing to go out all winter (yes, I will admit, we sometimes had to carry them out, to make them at least walk all the way back to the house!) and now can’t seem to get enough of it! Running around with their tails held high, chasing each other up trees or just basking in the beutiful sunshine. Yes, I do indeed believe spring is here! 🙂
Just to give you a hint who those three fluffy four-legged creatures are. 😉
Looking out the window again I now spot a beautiful pheasant hiding in the big bush outside. He is often here, likes to spend his days there. He seems to be sleeping, but I don’t believe he is in much danger of the afore mentioned threats to little birds. I know for a fact that those three fluffy ones hold him in the highest respect, and are rather afraid of him. So I think he may sleep there in peace.
Yesterday I got the urge to do some sewing again, brought out a bunch of different fabrics from my stash (which is in desperate need of being re-organised, as for some reason all the fabrics seem to have a way of ending up in a big mess, with the one I need always furthest down! I don’t know how it happens! I’m sure they do it while I’m asleep or not looking! ) and told my mom I needed opinions. She has a skirt, a very nice little skirt which both she, my sister and I all equally like. And I decided to try my hand at making one like it. We decided upon a fabric and I got going. To my extreme pleasure it was both easy, quick and fun. By the end of a couple of hours I had new skirt that I was very happy with. Such a change from the previous sewing project I did!
I will tell you that the reason why I made that skirt wasn’t only beause I felt like sewing. It was also because a couple of days ago I found the most fantastic boots ever! Having long been in search of a good, nice pair of boots my happiness on finding these was great! They are perfect and I can’t stop saying so every time I walk past them where they are standing now! Luckily my family know me well and merely smiles at this quirk of mine.
So of course I needed a new skirt! To go along with the boots! 😉
Unfortunately our camera has decided it is time for a vacation. Whether or not it will ever return from that vacation I don’t know. Hopefully all that is required is a new battery, but we don’t know yet…
And now, just to prove that this post will really be a very random one (in case you hadn’t already noticed that) I will throw out a question for my readers out there; has any one of you been to the Charles Dickens museum in London? The reason I am asking is because I am planning a weeks visit to the beautiful England in April, to visit my darling sister there. And I am considering going in to London for a day or two, and hearing about the Charles Dickens museum I thought it might be something to do. So if anyone has been there, would you recommend it? Is it worth a visit?
Now I’m off to help prepare some lunch, so good bye my dears for now! I hope you are having a glorious day wherever in the world you are and whatever you are doing!
