My eyes are all grumbly because they need new lenses (which will happen tomorrow), so I’ll keep my descriptions short in the interest of my head not exploding all over my living room.
Snow. On April 6th. Bastardous northern Illinois climate. Morning, Third Street in DeKalb, on my walk to work.
Beginning the first baby blanket, for the first of about a million babies I know will be born this year. It’s the Ribbons Baby Blanket by Evelyn A. Clark (Ravelry link) in Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. Delicious, but the Russian join for the color change is making me crazy.
Detail of a painting by a friend of mine on my living room wall. I think all of the pieces on our walls are from friends, which is how I like my art.
The moon was almost full on Thursday night when we got home from a friend’s house. It’s not a very good picture, but it captured the evening pretty well.
We visited friends in Madison this weekend. These are walking sticks carved by our friend, most of them on camping trips. They made interesting shadows in the candlelight.
One of their basil plants. We went for a really great walk down by the lake and saw some beautiful houses, a tree with easter eggs on it, and cute dogs. Did I have my camera with me at the time? Of course not.
Wee Maggie, who is now three years old and about to be a big sister. She’s Ninja Husband’s cousin’s daughter (1st cousin once removed?) and was such a trip on Easter. So sweet and bossy and bubbly.
