Winter's last gasp

Typical Oklahoma weather . . . March comes in like a lion and goes out like a . . . What is the saying??????

We have gotten inches and inches of , well probably 5, snow. Which, of course, has buried the pansies, daffodils, and tulips I lovingly planted last fall. (You know that, except for herbs, I don't really lovingly plant anything--I might lovingly buy the materials, but when it comes to the actually planting--I swear and moan a lot, and sometimes even leave them in the garage to die). In any case, the plants are all crumpled up under the snow. So, I had to take the cliche flowers in
the snow photos.

I'm not complaining about the snow--it should all be gone tomorrow as the temperature is supposed to get to the high 50s. And, it gave me a whole day of no errands or any other things to get in the way of my agenda.

AGENDA???? Well, yes. I have gotten a good way along knitting up this sweater
of some handspun I've been waiting to find just the right pattern for. The yardage is going to be very, very close, but hopefully I'll have enough.

I got the latest scarves off the loom. Naturally, the one I like the most is the one, that was really an afterthought. I spent the least amount of time planning it and just barely had enough yarn to make it, so it is a bit shorter than I would have liked. Isn't that always the way?

In sports news. . . the US men's national team--of COURSE I'm talking about soccer-- is playing El Salvador tonight in a World Cup qualifier match, so be sure to watch.

I have loved today, the snow was beautiful coming down and I pretty much snugged in and knit and watched it.
The pansies will be fine at least.
Wow, I am so impressed, spinning enough yarn for a sweater! Good going.
