Looking Forward

What a beautiful way to start the day!  I woke up.

Knitting In The Wild is having a pre-spring give-away- a skein of Porter Peaches yarn.  Makes my mouth water for garden-fresh goodies and fans the flame of my longing for spring!

I love the sounds of farm life.  As the coffee brews and breakfast cooks, Dad fires up the tractor to go feed hay.  Music to my ears, the rhythm of the country.  Now, off somewhere, is the drone of a chainsaw.  Probably Dad on to the next farm chore.  A few weeks ago I had my first taste of operating a chainsaw.  In my 30-something years, I've never even touched one; always watched Dad.  But he had a hand injury, and I offered to lend him mine.  It was a great experience!  Hope I can do it again sometime.
