Is Spring really here?

Or is it some type of cruel joke nature is playing on us. March in Wisconsin is like that, sunny and warm one day and snowy and bitterly cold the next. Yesterday we had rain , most of the snow we had is now gone, we had lots of thunder, not so much lightening. I have the kitchen window open and Archie is sitting on his perch gazing longingly at the birds which are chirping loudly. Pretty soon it will "lay in the sun" in the living room window time. Oh ,to be a cat!
   Still knitting,  have a few projects going, also thinking of spring cleaning , rearranging the stash, almost city wide garage sale time and farmer's market opening. Hubby's car is still in the shop, the mechanic says he needs a new rack and pinion system, and possible a new fuel pump, groan (Darn, that cuts into my stash budget for the year), better to have him safe and sound.Mary also hinted that for her 18th birthday present she would like a new computer. Hers tends to over heat and since it's a laptop her battery life is just about nil, down to 20 minutes.It's about three years old and has been used everyday.
 Well going to stop for now , must do laundry and other housework type things. Ducking on out, TTFN.

Saturday Sunshine

We were fortunate to do most of our running yesterday before the winter storm hit. Had to take Mary to Sauk Prairie to the doctors for some fasting blood work, she was not a happy camper about having nothing to eat after 8:00pm the night before. We were able to be back home by 9:30, and than a big breakfast. This morning it's like pulling teeth I can't get her up!!Hopefully I won't have to go the bright lights and air horn method, I hate using water it makes a soggy mess.Be right back, final yell before drastic measures.Well will see if I have to go back.
   Rob has started back for another term at college, says the classes are easy ones, this time around, another will see by the end of the term. Mary has final year course selection March 14 in Madison. Busy busy. We will done to one vehicle for awhile, hubby is taking his car into get fixed ,might take a bit. Means getting up at 4:30am to get him to work and picking him up at 4:00pm.Could be worse.
  The sun and I are not friends today, just too bright against the snow, and I have a migraine left over from last night. well I am going to go my recliner and rest a bit , I'll be talking to you later.Have a good one.
