March is such a fickle month.It is the seam between winter and spring—though seam suggests an even hem, and March is more like a rough line of stitches sewn by an unsteady hand, swinging wildly between January gusts and June greens. You don’t know what you’ll find, until you step outside.―
In March I jumped on the Costco Tulip Bandwagon and thoroughly enjoyed their brief, but spectacular display! I also got my first COVID-19 vaccination (dose two happens today!) which means I am one step closer to seeing family that I have so desperately missed. Though there is no photo as my daughter does not want photos shared online, Olivia reached the 6 month old milestone. Thankfully, I do get sometimes permissions from Heidi to share Vivi and Winston… and this month’s Winston just made me laugh! Those curled up toes. That hat! (Bald headed babies are just the best, yes?) I have been enlisted to do some hat sewing, which I hope to get to this week!
I enjoyed seeing the movement of the sunrise as it inched its way up from the back corner of my yard heading to its summer rising point.
Despite winter wanting to cling on a bit, the signs of spring kept gaining ground.
And that was March… I hope your March had some high points! See you all back here on Wednesday for some unraveling!
I think I spent too much time in March complaining about the changeable weather, without remembering that that is the norm. Your Addie LaRue quote expresses it perfectly! (I’m in a long hold queue for that book and I wish it would go faster.) Congratulations on impending shot #2, and I hope your side effects are minimal. Your happy hours look so good and Sherman probably loves them, too!
Didn’t March fly by?! It is fun to see Spring popping out all around the yard – slowly but surely!
I’m pretty sure I highlighted that quote in Addie LaRue; it so perfectly describes the month of March! I hope that now we’ve seen the last of winter and we only have warmer weather to look forward to.
I hope your second shot goes smoothly and you don’t have any side effects!
Hoping by now your second shot is history and that you are not having side effects…or if you have to that they are minimal and short-lived. Two things: 1) I love that picture of you sans make-up. You look great Kat! 2) Winston is adorable and I love his hat (and his toes). The quote you used is spot on too. Our lilac looks like yours!!
I always love to see your Happy Hours … I got very lazy last month and mostly just poured a glass of wine. I’m delighted to see little Winston, not looking quite so little anymore … and glad to know Olivia is doing fine not being online 🙂 I sure hope your second shot ushers in an April full of plans and promises (without a lot of side effects)!
Hooray for your shot and the opportunities that await! Starting with one good deep breath. I am a lover of bald babies, no question, and one of my favorite gifts to make is a knitted pilot’s cap. I had a few for my own babies, and it pained me when they outgrew them! And Sherman, my man–‘Wut’ is one of your best photos yet.
I got my 2nd shot today, I hope yours went perfectly! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the month of March.
Congrats on your second dose!! I laughed at that photo of Winston.. and I think I even see some melting snow in the background!! I love it 🙂 And although I sometimes put pictures of the kids on my blog, I think Olivia’s mommy and I have a similar philosophy: I feel a bit strange when other people share photos of my kids, so I think I know where she’s coming from!! I’m glad to hear your family is doing well 🙂
I am SO happy you are closer to seeing family!!!! I understand the photo privacy thing but I will sit here and imagine your grands who you miss and love and they will be thrilled when they can see you. It’s been a HARD year.
Winston is adorable. And hooray for having shot two in the books. Yes we are one step closer to seeing those kids. Karen is right – it has been a hard year. And Sherman is quite the gentleman too. He must be such good company.
Yes that quote is perfect. We certainly had some serious winds down here. My Costco bulbs did wonderful. I ended up with 2 different colors out of the same bag. A lovely pale pink and a blood red. The pinks bloomed first and now the reds are slowly fading away.
