Spring Is On Its Way In!

dsc02438How do I know? Because the flowers are blooming! Today was just beautiful – sunny, cool, and hinting of better things to come. Of course in the midst of all of this, we’re taking off to the mountains and snow in Colorado. (And I’m happy about that!) We’ll have a great week and then we’ll have this to look forward to when we get back. I’m so hoping that the lilac buds didn’t freeze and those will be along soon.

Thank you for all of your emails and inquiries about Susan. She’s home and doing well (feeling a little “Loopy” from pain meds, but then again I think she always feels a LITTLE Loopy, due to where she works…) I know that she’s looking forward to being back at work as soon as possible. In the meantime, Karen and the rest of the gals here will be packing and shipping your orders all week long while Susan and I are out. If the number of boxes here today is any indication, I know that they’ll be putting some fun things up for you to enjoy next week! (Although I did hear some groans when the UPS guy told us how many boxes he had for us today.)

Today is also the day to announce the winners from last week’s blog contest about your favorite mug. I used the random number generator and it picked 3 winners. (Why three? Because we usually draw 1 winner for every 250 or so comments.) This time, we’ll be sending prizes to Bonney in NH, Sharon in TX, and Nikki in Australia.  Congratulations to you three!  (If you’re wondering if it’s you, I also emailed all three.  Check your email box.) We’ll have another question for you to answer in our April Blog Contest.

No blog next week, but I’ll be back with pictures on Monday, March 30th. Have a great week and get lots of knitting done while I’m gone. I plan to!

  1. Enjoy the time with your kiddos and have a wonderful week off in Colorado. I am sure you will be missed. Can’t wait to see all the goodies to go up!

  2. Have fun with the family and friends, get some knitting done, rest, snack, and generally have a wonderful and safe trip. So glad to hear that Susan is home and on the mend! Get well soon Susan!!

    Love the photo of the Daffodil. We had snow flurries this morning in Central PA…will hopefully warm up soon (and stay that way…it teased us last week).

  3. Thanks so much for keeping us posted about Susan. I hope she’s completely well soon!

    Have a fabulous time with your family. Loved ones, beautiful scenery and lots of knitting– that sounds like the perfect vacation to me!

  4. Hi Sheri, hope that you and family have a great vacation,with good weather. I’m so glad you will have time to relax. Hope all knitting packing is done! Have a safe trip. Best to Susan, for a quick recovery. Hugs

  5. oh how i miss daffodils ! that is such a pretty one too.

    thank you so much for the prize i was so not expecting it, it was a wonderful surprise and i can’t wait to see it 🙂

    Have a great vacation with your kids sheri, the time passes so quick so i hope the weather holds and you guys can make the most of every moment.

  6. Sheri, I hope you and your family have an awesome vacation in CO. Enjoy the time together.

    Thank you for letting us know about Susan. Susan, I’m continuing to keep you in my prayers. May your health be soon restored.

  7. Spring has sprung here too. The peepers (tree frogs) were out last weekend but then it got cold again. Have a great trip with your kids and get lots of rest and a little knitting done. Thanks for the update on Susan. She is in my prayers.

  8. You are a very blessed mom to have your kids home and have them with you for a whole week! Wonderful! Now, just be sure to enjoy every moment of every day with your whole family. The time will just go too quickly, I’m sure, but just consider yourself grateful for the time you do have. 🙂 Have a GREAT time, Sheri!

  9. I just returned to St. Louis from beautiful CO, how do you get so much knitting done? We skied for 5 days, makes me tired, I knit very little, HOWEVER, I also worry about running out of yarn! In fact, when bad weather is predicted I go buy yarn while everyone else is buying milk and bread! We stayed in Keystone, where were you?

  10. Sheri, I hope you have a terrific vacation, spending time with your family and knitting. I loved the picture of the daffodil. The squirrels scampered away with my bulbs…

  11. Sheri, I hope you don’t see this until you get back (because it means you’ll be taking a break from work!), but I hope you had a fabulous time with the family, the snow, the knitting, the Kindle . . .

  12. We have crocus popping out the ground (though I always have to wonder how many were planted the day before), a sign of spring even though the temperatures are still cold. Have a great vacation!

  13. Thanks for letting us know how Susan is doing (we worry, you know!) and hope you and your family are having a lovely vacation!
