Spring - y

With the crazy winter weather all over the north eastern area and us getting rain I thought I'd post a pic of my current project.  At first I didn't think it was going to work.  The flow was hitting me and I almost discarded it, but I'm glad I continued because I now think it flows nicely and the colors have a rhthymn.  I've named it Spring because, well, it reminds me of Spring with the green/yellow. 

This weekend we are going to pull out some final boxes with trinkets we've saved through the years.  It's all in the effort of emptying out the train room so the DH can start his train room.  We also have boxes (and I mean boxes) of old letters and cards we exchanged when I was in Okinawa for a year that we feel can now be destroyed, so we are planning on burning them Sunday.  We have saved them since 1997 and not once have we brought them out to read them, and well, some of them are not necessarily anything anyone would want to see/read due to their content so we feel like burning them together is the right thing to do. 

This move to Ohio has been a cleansing of sort.  Definitely one of soul searching.  I can honestly say I am closer to my DH now than I have ever been which I find odd because we have been together for a long time.  Opening up and really trusting someone with what's in your heart can be a tricky thing. 

I hope everyone has a marvelous weekend!


  1. What a beautiful post, being together through a move can make you closer, glad you are getting things unpacked and organized. I will be in Ohio this weekend visiting my son, burr it is going to be cold for my thin blood.

    1. Thanks Meredith. I hope your visit to Ohio was a good one and not too cold.
