I love skirts in the summer! Nothing beats throwing on a cotton skirt, flip flops and relaxing! Last summer I couldn't find any skirts that I liked. The mini was back and I am way past my prime for a mini! I've been looking at this pattern for a long time and finally decided to make it. I'm so glad I did. It took about an hour from start to finish and is so easy and comfortable. Many more will be made in the coming weeks!
Last week was a girlfriend's birthday. I whipped up this springy bag as a gift. It didn't come out as planned but still worked well as a gift bag for the daffodils. Again, this bag should be quick to make, but my brain wasn't on correctly that day. I have a few more of these to create. Hopefully, they will go quicker this time!
Yesterday our school district had its second bomb threat of the spring season. The high school and middle school went into lockdown. It's a sad commentary of our times when our school children have to sit in a corner of their classroom, doors and windows locked, anticipating what might come next. I asked my son if he was scared (as he should be). He told me that his legs felt like rubber until his teacher told them that it was another threat. I asked him why that changed things for him and he responded that he was glad that it wasn't a man with a gun. Homeschooling is looking better and better everyday.
He went off to school today grumbling that it better not happen again. He had a project that he wanted to present and the new ocean unit was starting in science.
My lilac is showing signs of life. Spring may just come when we're not looking!

So in the meantime you can check out this new site (to me) that I have been enjoying and make this goulash. I made it for the boys last night and they actually ate it! It reminded me of the goulash that my mom use to make.
Now let's see if I can upload this!

This week I'm making lists and cleaning house. I have many knitting projects that I hope to finish up soon. Stay tune for updates!
