And here it is March already!!

Not that I am complaining...I am so thankful that winter is on it's way out the door. By the time we get back from Hawaii we will have a short 5 days left of Old Man Winter. I am so glad! I love springtime. It is my favorite season I think, with all the new growth on the plants, beautiful flowers and warmth again in the sunshine. The greens are so vibrant, and are never again quite as "spring green" the rest of the year!!!

It's been a busy week. I've been out after work almost every evening this week, and again today, shopping for things we need for our trip. I think I purchased the last of it this afternoon. I hope. I like to get a bunch of new tee-shirts before we go to Hawaii, then I wear them all summer, so now I am set for the year again. Only six more days until we leave!!! I visited a couple of different video rental stores looking for movies that were filmed on Kauai. I brought home South Pacific and Six Days, Seven Nights. Alot of the South Pacific beach scenes are right there on the north shore of Kauai. I keep saying to John, "look, that's where we will be next Saturday!"
I made contact with a lady that is in the same cyberstitchers group I am in, her name is also Connie and she lives on Kauai now, so we are going to meet up for lunch while we are there. We are also taking a long layover at the Honolulu airport and my first cousin, Kathy, is coming to the airport to spend a little time with us. We had such a great visit with them 4 years ago when we vacationed on Oahu. I am looking forward to seeing her again!

I haven't gotten much stitching done at all this week. By the time I get home from shopping I am too tired. I started Porecelain Nosegay by Just Nan, but as you can see from the scan, I haven't gotten very far. I do love the way the colors are working with the fabric!

Not much else exciting to share I guess. I am not sure I will have time for another blog entry before we leave for Kauai next Saturday, but I will be sure and do a full report when we get home.
Happy Birthday today Dad!!!! You missed some glorious sunshine and sweater weather up here today!!! We are all looking forward to you guys coming home!

Day after day of sunshine sounds really good right now!
