Corner View...The Great Outdoors


I've been bringing my little corner of the outdoors in, enjoying the scent of spring.

Flowers are popping up blue, purple, yellow, pink, white, and red all over the yard.

And yes, this is a very sorry excuse for a post about the great outdoors. My fellow townie, Vanessa, did it up right.

I am still decompressing from my school semester. I've been waking up early and jumping upon the list of things that I've wanted to tackle for the past six months but haven't had time. I'm also trying to force myself to take a little break too, but I'm not good at sitting still. Good thing I've started reading this book.

Back soon with photos of the finished sweater, new knitting projects and other musings. In the meantime, visit these lovely folks from all over the world...

I love the flower shots. Lilacs are my favorite. I wish our trees would produce more flowers.
I can't wait to see your sweater. Enjoy...

This book sounds great! I think we need to read it too! I'd love to hear/read your thoughts on it once you've read it.

Happy Day!

I think everyone deserves a bit of time off. Good for you. I really love the flowers that Spring is bringing us this year. Everytime I see them I exclaim "I love Spring!" You can imagine I do it a lot!
