Spring Break . . . for real

This Spring Break (for Harleigh, not for me) is true to its name. In the 70s today. Heaven. Dropped the girl off this morning at a college friend's house, to meet up with 6 others, heading up to the mountains for hiking and camping. Perfect weather for their excursion (although tonite will be chilly). Once home, I immersed myself in readying for Karla's baby shower next weekend. Sewing to finish (evidenced here in a shower project that utilizes her nursery fabric — the one with the little birdies). A gift to finish making. Decor to craft. Painting of things. It's all coming together.
Took a brief break and went outside to prune and prod, discovering the sprouting perennials, the hints of Spring. And, of course, Spring is not complete without the Japanese Cherry outside my kitchen window. Cut back come shoots at the base of the tree and gave them a place of grace on the living room coffee table.
