Spring, She has Sprung

It seems to be here, all right. We now have warm rain instead of cold rain. That's always the first clue.

In a brief non-raining moment today I took this, as evidence of the arrival of Spring:

The landlord had told me that this was just a pile of excess bark mulch left over from the front garden, and I was planning on doing "something" with it. Seems someone else had plans. We have no idea who planted these, but it's going to look pretty festive at the side of my house in a day or two. More festive, that is. I love daffodils.

Thank you, mystery gardener!

I spent most of Saturday on "kid time". We've been sorely lacking in that department of late, so we both had a fantastic time. Went on a bus and then the Seabus, visited a friend, ate candy, went swimming, played, ate dinner, played some more and ate more candy.

Her Surreal Highness was so bagged she fell asleep on the bus on the way home.

A little knitting happened, but all I worked on was Sophie and one of the ubiquitous dishcloths. Neither is interesting enough to post. Sophie should only take a few more days, but even I am not going to post a few more inches of stocking stitch. Well, not unless I'm completely desperate for blog fodder.

Lynne has asked to be interviewed, so without further ado, here are your questions.

1. How many UFOs do you have on the go right now? (And yes, you have to include the six you have absolutely no intention of finishing).

2. What is your favourite yarn to work with?

3. Would you like some green ... oh. No.

3. Trying again. Who taught you how to knit, and when?

4. Have you ever cheated on your knitting by indulging in crochet, cross-stitch or quilting?

5. Do you do charity knitting and if so, what, and for which organization?

More kid time all day tomorrow, and possibly the resurrection of my ancient, costly, overheating van.

Sometimes it doesn't suck at all to be me.

Did you happen to notice the clause in the interview game where, once interviewed, the interviewee could then turn around and interview you? Well it's there and here you go! HAHAHAHAH!!

1. What's the first thing you notice about some one you meet for the first time?

2. What made you want to start knitting?

3. What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

4. Being a mom, have you ever said “Don’t run with scissors” or “You could put an eye out” any thing cliché like that?

5. If you could have any super-power you wanted what would it be and why?
I am so envious - I awoke on the first day of spring to find 4 inches of blowing snow piled up on my railing (in central BC). Even more disappointing because the winter's snow had already melted! Oh well - Victoria in two weeks looks good.
Love your blog
