Hellebores in my garden s-l-o-w-l-y opening.
It's March, and while we prepare our minds for spring, the weather is not cooperating. It's still cold and the rain often looks more like snow, that is except when the snow is really snowing before it turns to rain.
But spring will come. The first little daffodils are braving the weather to make their appearance.
Tom and Jill made preparations on Sunday to get their tickets on their phones and then gear up for the Sounders match at the stadium.They both reported that it was very cold, but that their new hand warmers worked very well.
I was quite cozy watching at home.
And we won!
Monday and Tuesday I had appointments, preparing for surgery. Monday I had a steroid injection in my already fixed hip to try to settle down the persistent tendinitis. I don't think it's working. On Tuesday we met with my orthopedic surgeon to get set up for surgery next week and we brought home a bag full of prescriptions. I'll have to make a chart to keep them all straight.
Today, Wednesday, we are prepping for our cousins lunch tomorrow. We made a trip to the grocery store for a few fresh ingredients and for flowers.
Now the flowers are arranged and the table is set. It looks like spring in my dining room, which will be a good thing as it will be cold and dark and rainy outside.
I'll be making soup to warm us up, served with good bread and cheese and fruit. Tom will help. When the guests arrive I'll give them jobs too.
And we'll make our own spring.
