Five on Friday
Whoosh. Where did the week go? Are you noticing the way the light lingers in the evenings? I hardly know when to start cooking dinner!
For the first of my five things - have you heard of The Great British Sewing Bee? Season One ran last spring and now the second Season is playing. Not in North America. Inkstain, a novelist and sewist, puts up links to the episodes each week. Last year I found them on YouTube, but haven't been able to this year. I really enjoy watching the contestants cut and stitch and use their creativity under time constraints.
Second, last weekend's tulips have opened and faded to a lovely blush colour. I love their pale reflection in the mirror.
Third. Our front porch for the last couple of months. Prior to pouring a new driveway last November we (aka Tim) removed the small and sinking porch. He framed up a new one, providing access to the front door until the rest of the project could be done. One little grandgirlie asked, "Why is there a hole in your porch, Nana?" on several occasions. The other little grandgirlie stared down and said, "hole, hole."
As of this week the holes are gone but the railing is not yet complete. Soon, I hope.
Fourth, I'm hoping to get to this book this weekend. Another Inspector Gamache mystery.
These croci beckoned me on my walk the other day, so I snapped a photo with my phone. Such a vivid cluster of color means that surely spring cannot be far away.
