The tune may be from the film It’s Always Fair Weather, but Marylanders are looking for some not-so-fair weather this weekend. Yep, the forecast is calling for rain, sleet, and snow tomorrow afternoon through Monday night. Winter’s last gasp, I guess.
To be honest, I’m always rather sad to see winter slip away. I enjoy the cold because it gives me an excuse to snuggle in front of the fire with some hot cocoa or tea (and a stitchy project, of course!). I love to sit in my rocking chair in the sun room, usually with a small dog on my lap, and watch the snow fall. I love how bright and clean the world looks after a snowstorm. Yep, winter will be missed 🙂
March seems to be coming in like a lion this year – it’s pretty cold and breezy today and, like I mentioned, wintry weather is in the forecast. This morning, I told my daughter that there are only 3 nice things about March…my sister’s birthday, my mom-in-law’s birthday, and St. Patrick’s Day 🙂 I don’t really mean that, of course. There are many wonderful things to look forward to in the spring time – warming temperatures (no coat!), pretty flowers, greening grass and trees (I love trees!), baby bunnies hopping around the yard, birds building their nests…so many pleasant things!
I recently completed a little stitch in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Since I didn’t have money to buy a pattern or kit, I found a free pattern online. TBH, it wasn’t my favorite, but it’s kinda cute. Maybe I’ll try my hand at designing one of these days…
Anyway, I hope you like this project and are planning to enjoy the upcoming springy weather!
