 Yesterday was so spectacular.  One of those gorgeous days that give you hope that spring truly is right around the corner.  (Despite the impending snow we should be getting today. ) Yesterday I grabbed the basket where my Maine Squeeze sits and a tartan blanket. I headed outside and plopped the blanket on the freezing flagstone.  I let the chickens out of the coop and sat with them to protect them from the hawks that would love to have them as a snack.  They were in heaven.  So was I.  It felt so familiar.  Like I was sitting outside, knitting, watching my children play. It truly seems like yesterday that I was doing just that.
So, it's hard to believe that I drove my oldest baby back to college (OSU) on Sunday after his Spring Break.  I told him I couldn't believe that he only has about 6 weeks left until he will graduate.  He told me that he is more than aware.  That he has known to treasure every day of this year.  I reminded him that treasuring every day of every year will be the only way to think from now on.  Cheers to yesterday and more importantly to today.
