Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Good day sunshine!

That warm bright thing is in the sky today. Wahooo! This is what the trees across the street look like on the last day of April in 2009. The leaves are fresh and not quite unfolded, with nary a bug-chewed hole nor a wind-tattered edge. And oh, my heart! they are sooo green!

This is what our front lawn looks like in the sunshine. I see it rarely enough that I will want pictures to remind myself next December. Lush green grass with sunshine on it.

And this is what my front porch hostas look like on the last day of April. They are well settled and comfortable in their niche, tucked back in the shade. In July/august, they will send up tall stalks topped with fragrant white flowers. It makes the front door a pleasant place to be.

And because I have lots and lots of tulip photos, her are a couple more.


Due to illness in the department, I have worked more hours than than a lowly part-timer should have. So after my two hour stint at the jail, when it was clear that my services weren't NEEDED (though always appreciated, which makes my heart hop up and down) I traipsed out into the sunshine. Tra, and might I add, lah, lah, laaaaaaah!

Of course, it's still too cool to sit around soaking up rays unless you are wearing a sweatshirt and a hat (or you have the hot blood of youth or menopause surging through your veins. The only people I see wearing t-shirts in March are teen-age boys, and women going through the change.) But I am almost ready to go sit in the car and run down the battery playing the radio and knitting in the sunshine.

I have committed to making two scarves for a fund-raiser in mid may. And I still have crafty gifties to make for Lyssa, Lucia, Bobbi and Sue. I'd better get out the whoopty 12s and get knitting!

    Oh now that IS lovely... (I've done that, btw. I'll be going to the grocery store, and it's a nice day, and I'll get there, and pull out my knitting and finish my song... the battery can take it, and it makes your heart as pretty as tulips.)
