You all know the saying 'when the cat's away, the mice will play?' Well this was the case while we were in Florida for the month of February. We have a dog though, not a cat, and he was away with us.
In my craft studio things were knocked over and my spools of ribbon rolled every which way. Luckily nothing was damaged and no sign of chewing anywhere. I think these little rodents are smarter than we give them credit for.
We came back to almost no snow on the ground but two days of the white stuff coming down like the dickens remedied that. Ah well, it will soon be spring and the sun rising through the trees is a pretty sight. Not to mention I've seen a few robins in the dwarf crab apple tree.
My neighbour welcomed me back with a bouquet of tulips for my birthday in a lovely shade of purple. Thank you for all the nice comments on my last post when I had bragging rights about becoming a senior. And as Forrest Gump said, "and that's all I'm going to say about that."
Murchie's released a Canada 150 blend of tea in honour of Canada's 150th anniversary this year and I tried it yesterday afternoon. Here's their description: A mosaic of black, green and oolong teas, blended with a hint of maple to celebrate our nation’s history and diversity. Doesn't it sound good? It did make a pleasant pot of tea.
The clocks move ahead this Sunday, the days are getting warmer and I have been reading an awesome updated gardening book to share for a review. It got me itching to get outside and get my hands dirty.
I plan to get around and visit everyone in the next few days, have a good week!
Take time for tea.
