.....and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and
absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow
is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense. "
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Isn't that a great quote? It sure describes recent days at Taylorsoutback! But not much nonsense here as we try to stay focused.
The Wedding Quilt is Finished...
No fair peeking...we will wait until the couple arrives back in Wisconsin in just a few weeks...
And keeping up with Barbara Brackman's 2013 Dixie Sampler....
Plus have all those 1/2" hexies together - now to figure out how everything goes together to make that little purse!
Look at this....bare ground, ice free pond and the spring peepers are in full chorus today. Our pair of geese have returned to nest and Mr. and Mrs. Mallard have settled in amongst the cattails to raise their family.
We have waited for so long - the winter was endless. Just in the last 2 days, the grass has a tinge of green, and even though the ground is still cold, signs of new growth are evident in the iris, phlox and daffodils - all of which will be late but doubly enjoyed.
The weekend was taken up with the start of yardwork - endless loads of thatch, downed branches and fallen leaves were gathered and carted off to a distant part of our south field where Mother Nature does her part to return everything to the earth.
And so, each day has it finish and as Mr. Emerson says, complete with blunders and absurdities. But somehow complete nevertheless.
And tomorrow is indeed a new day and counting....
33 days to go........
Wishing each of you many finishes to your day!
