It's April 14th, and this is what I woke up to this morning!!
I admit, last week while I was in Palm Springs, I laughed when I heard there had been snow in areas near home. I was warm and enjoying the sun and pool and ambiance, so hahahahah. Guess I got mine, huh?
This was what it looked like yesterday. My friend is planting one of my pastures in flowers to sell at the Farmer's Market this summer. She is using a method called No till, Low fill. I think that is right. It's a layering method, that some people call lasagna gardening.
We put the tent and table in the middle so we will have a nice little retreat this summer. It is going to be so beautiful.
So, last week in Palm Springs, I only got these next two pictures because my battery died and I had forgotten to pack my charger. Do I have the worst luck with cameras or what? So anyhow, these two black swans visited us every morning with their 5 fluffy babies, as shown below.
I had a wonderful time there, staying with my brother and some wonderful ladies that really knew how to have fun. I treated myself to two massages, an Essential Oil Wrap and time in the Eucalyptus Steam Room. Ahhhhhhhhhhh. I should have stayed another week!!
I'm spinning about 3-5 skeins a week now, with my new electric spinning wheel. I could be doing more, but I'm just relaxing.
I've also been making yard art. This sets on a pole in the garden. We need the brightness until the sun finds it's way here.
The snow has stopped, but I think this will be a good day to stay inside and knit and spin. Yeah.
