Looking Out My Window: There are buds ready to explode with color any day now, the crab apple trees and the cherry tree.
I’m Hearing: Despite the cloudy weather there's a robin in the locust tree just singing his heart out. He has the right philosophy of life.
My Weekend Plans Include: I want to get some pansies planted in the window boxes in front and then Ed has a Pickle Ball tournament on Sunday. I'll go and watch for a while.
I’m Reading: Ed and I are still working on the First Family by David Baldacci. It's a good story but we only get a chance to listen together at dinner. The other book I'm listening to is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. The story based in 1946 and is a series of letters written by Julie Ashton, a writer from London and from the members of the literary society on Guernsey Island, a British Island occupied by the Germans during the war. The characters and their relationships are delightful.

Something Quiltie: I usually make the binding for a quilt when I am finishing the top. By then I know exactly what it should be. I had the binding already made for my Rouenneries quilt so when I got it back from being quilted I was ready to sew that binding on. It sure made it easier.
I’m Thinking About: I need to come up with a clever, interesting, exciting idea to celebrate my birthday. It needs to be something extra special. Any ideas?
One of My Favorite Things: I love anything that is grilled outside.
What I’m Planning For: My to do list has so many little things on it that if I just got started I could really accomplish a lot. I'll see how long I can stay focused.
