Below is a photo of the gray skies from my home . Those hills in the background were a beautiful shade of green early last year. But due to the severe drought they quickly became brown.
The past two days we have had sunny skies. Here's a photo of the beautiful morning sunrise.
But, today's sunrise was even more amazing with all those colors in the sky. The clouds are back this afternoon and we may get a little more rain this coming week. But, that's OK as everything is so clean and green.
As usual, I planted some paperwhites and they seem to have taken off quite well.
A couple of them are blooming. I love seeing these flowers take shape each year.
On a crafty note, I pulled out this beaded scarf that I think I began back in 2013. You can see my Ravelry notes here. (I love the way your WIPs can "hibernate zzz" on Ravelry! Anyway, I'm hoping to get it finished this week.
My blog friend Christine who is an extremely accomplished knitter, shared her experience knitting a beautiful Norwegian style (fair isle) sweater that featured steeking. Her post so fascinated me that I requested this book as a Christmas gift. I don't know if I'll ever get around to knitting such a masterpiece but I may try a few practice swatches.
One last thing I wanted to share. I went to the dentist on Thursday and as I'm always careful where I park my car, I chose an end parking space. I no sooner pulled into the space when I heard the funniest sound; at first I thought it was my car engine like a squeaky fan belt (do cars still have fan belts..). But, it was a flock of birds up in the tree next to me. I didn't pay much attention since they immediately flew away. Well, it was a big mistake as when I returned to my car an hour later it was a mess! Yup, and the rain had stopped. Needless to say, I came home and washed it off which meant I had to dry it as our water is so hard it leaves spots. I don't know what type of birds they were. It was such a unique chirping sound all in unison.
Enjoy your week wherever you are. Again, I appreciate your friendship :)
My best to you,
