Another Day to Stay Inside
We have yet another system making its way through our mountains today. In fact, I can't even see our mountains! It's 44 degrees out there with high winds. They warned of gusts up to 55 mph, so we trudged out early this morning to turn off the wind turbine. That means we must conserve our power today or have the diesel generator run and run.
Thank goodness my plants are starting to sprout inside. That makes me so hopeful that spring will come and stay with us!
The herbs are doing nicely and I need to plant some more varieties this weekend.
I started the spring house cleaning and almost half the house is done. Gosh that makes me feel good! As each room is dusted from top to bottom and windows and blinds scrubbed, the finishing is steam cleaning the carpets as I go. I was going to do the carpet in our bedroom, but it's just too cool and I want it to dry thoroughly in one day. Maybe the sun will shine tomorrow.
So for now, I'll get back to cranking more socks. This "Step" yarn is a delight to work with. Have you tried it?
Oh, and one last reminder before Tax Day - be sure to read the post "April Giveaway" for a chance to win a pair of women's hand cranked socks.
See you again on Friday to let you know who our winner is.
