I was going to post about the first harbingers of spring. In fact, the only reason I hadn't posted lately was because I kept forgetting my camera on my walks to take pictures of the budding trees and daffodils and tulips popping through the ground. However, this morning we were greeted by this:
It is extremely unusual for us to get snow this late in the season. Driving into work was really treacherous! The roads were solid black ice.

By tomorrow afternoon it will be all gone and I can hopefully get some pictures of spring in the making.
I've also put off posting because of lack of energy. I'm still battling bronchitis. I thought that last week I was getting better, but experienced a set back this week. I've managed to get to work and back, but seem to have problems getting enthused about much of anything. I have done some scrapbook pages. This one chronicles a wonderful road trip we made back in 1985:

Sorry I don't have the stats handy. The information would be in the other room and that would entail actually getting up out of my chair and walking back there. Too much trouble!
I've also made progress on the Hidcote shawl. This part is really relaxing and you can even see a bit of the pattern developing:
Maggie continues to provide us with endless sources of amusement. Lately she's taken to racing in after her morning constitutional to gaze adoringly into the fire:
And if you think that's cute, take a look at this:
Yes, Nana is already planning different layouts for a really cute scrapbook page!
