I cannot believe Feb is half gone. I guess as I get older (another birthday on Thursday), time really does go faster. Today, schools, banks and postal service, etc. are closed in celebration of past presidents. So Happy Presidents Day to all.
I have to get things together for a new rug hooking class that I will begin next month if all goes well. My studio has gotten to be a real mess, so that needs a major clean and reorganization before classes begin. Several students from a couple of previous classes have expressed an interest in coming in to hook together — time seems to be a factor for them at home and having a time set aside away from home just for hooking, allows them the opportunity to really work on their hooking projects. I might just have the new and previous students all come at the same time — they can learn and share together — that’s a great way to learn and measure progress.
Yesterday, it was almost 60 degrees here on the North coast of Ohio with driving rain and high winds, and this morning it is snowing again. I just cannot wait for Spring to arrive. My lawn completely died last summer in the searing heat, so I need to get some seed on the ground soon and hopefully by Spring the grass might germinate and grow. If not, I guess the weeds will eventually take over and grow into a new lawn (yuck); my neighbors might not like that so much though. It’s always something. But my flower beds are beckoning me to make Spring hurry up. I can’t wait to feel warm earth between my fingers again — it is so wondrous every Spring to rake out the beds and see the perennials already emerging, and ready to grow.
Until then, I guess I’ll clean and watch the snow fly so that come Spring, I can forget the cleaning and head for the outdoors! Stay warm faithful readers; Spring will come.
