Return from the West Coast & is Spring Coming?

Jen here:

It didn't look good as we came down through a snowstorm at the Charlotte Airport.  It didn't look good as we stepped off the shuttle at the long term parking lot into slushy puddles.  It didn't look good as the Rav 4 warmed up and the wipers pushed the frozen snow off the windshield.  Had we really left ALL signs of spring back in San Jose?

We did leave a jolly good time, a great show at Stitches West, and gorgeous green and blooming spring.  We left a fabulous group of people who helped set up, bought lots of yarn and fiber, traded stories and projects and smiles, helped pack up, and made us look forward to next year's show 30 minutes after the market closed!

But what about Spring?  Is it time yet here in the mountains?  There ARE a few signs!  The mating pair of Canada geese have returned to our pond.  The daffodils are poking up through the soil down the road.

The driveway has turned from icy ruts to muddy ruts.

Best of all, we have had some sunny, warmish days.  We are all tired from our trip, but strangely renewed.  When the boxes arrive from the west coast, we will update the website with new stock and new vigor.  Having a better, fuller website is a big focus for us this year!  Babs and I are both working on new knitting projects.  Maybe posting the progress here will encourage more FO's.  One can hope...and that is what Spring is all about!
