It was another glorious day of sunshine, much needed after the longest winter I can remember since I moved to Tennessee waaaay back in January, 1980. I almost thought I was back living in Chicago (a great city that I still love). But no matter, winter is over now! The last of the maple sap is dripping into my bucket (yes, I made maple syrup this year – quite the adventure!), the crocuses are showing their bright purple, and the tulips are peeking little tiny green tips through the dirt. Life is good.
I also got a good start on the redesign of the Lavender Cottage website. Not a lot there yet, but the ‘bones’ are done, ideas are flowing, and I am enjoying the process. It’s been a year and a half since I left my job as a computer programmer, and it feels good to get my head back into geeky technical things for a bit. So, that is why no Saturday Night at the Market or Sunday Morning Coffee and Etsy this week. I do have some great finds, though, and I will be posting about them next weekend.
Meanwhile, I’ll be working hard on new designs, orders and just breathing in the fine spring breezes each day. I did make a new ring this week that I’m thrilled about with the beautiful star sapphire I’ve had stashed away for a long time. It will be a hard one to part with, indeed!
Hope you all have a fine week, and that spring breezes are blowing your way, too!
