Spring Joy!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. It is turning into spring here, though if you blink you might miss the weather turn (it went from 80 to 45 in a day...)

The field next to our house is covered in spring flowers: Bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrushes, daises:

When we went for a walk, they were so beautiful--the best time of the year in Texas.

Of course Anna enjoyed the walk:

But the biggest hit was certainly the Easter bunny. When the first chocolate was spotted, Anna's day was complete:

Who can resist an Easter basket?

What could make the weekend complete? My Secret Pal!


What a great gift! Not only is there a cute bunny and some pretty butterfly markers for flowerpots or my front garden, but there is the yummiest smelling prickly pear soap, made in El Paso by Cactus Mary. I kept smelling this great smell, but didn't find the soap until the end.

Of course, the bunny quickly found a loving friend:

My SP also included a National Geographic Expedition Journal, which just tells you how much SP has figured out about me--I will use it when traveling to keep my notes. And the best part of the gift is two skeins of Blue Sky Alpaca in a pretty black color. Now what to make? Any thoughts/

Thanks a billion SP! Can't wait to get to the big reveal!
