The last days have been rainy here. We have gone to sleep at night to the sound of raindrops against our bedroom window and woken up to the very same sound. The birds doesn't seem to mind the wet and grey weather.......they sing and eat from the feeders all day long. Yesterday i heard a "new" bird singing outside again, this one actually sounded like the ringing of a telephone. I have NO idea which type of bird that was but it would be quite fun to find out.
Rain is perfect weather for doing some knitting.....actually i consider EVERY kind of weather as being good knitting weather...*smiling*... I have just taken a break now after discovering that i had done something wrong and need to unravel 10 cm......grrrrr...
For my birthday i got a bag of some tiny but oooooo SO delicious organic orange- and chocolate eggs........i ate the last two today. I was thinking about saving them for easter but that didn't happen....*laughing*...  
The seeds that i planted in pots inside last week have started to show their green shootings now. Looking at them every morning makes me happy, such an ordinary thing seeing something grow but it always carries with it a feeling of magic for me...!

"Spring has returned.  The Earth is like a child that knows poems."
-Rainer Maria Rilke

  4. Coming to this space is always such a treat for me. It adds instant calm and joy to my day to see that you've posted something.
    And Easter is much too far away to keep from eating chocolates.

      thank you for heart warming words my dear B, always makes me happy to hear from you!!


  5. I hope you will get to the bottom of your birdsong mystery! And Grrr, indeed about your knitting... that moment (sometimes a very long moment) of realization that a mistake has been made that needs correcting is never a pleasant one. I hope today brings you much more satisfaction, in all things :)
