Today is good.

Today has been a good day! Ollie slept in a few minutes, so I worked on my embroidery project, which is this:
I'm almost finished the row on the right, about 1/3 of the way done. I'm trying to alternate easy squares with more intricate ones so I don't get burned out. Justin already made me a beautiful frame for it (While we were home. I am slow.) and I can't wait to see it finished and framed. We turned on PBS ,by chance, watched a documentary on one of my favorite children's authors, Virginia Lee Burton, who wrote this:

I have really good memories of reading this book, and I can't wait to share it with Ollie.

We shared some scrambled eggs and yogurt for breakfast, talked to Gran, made this week's batch of bread, and read a few books.

Now Ollie is taking a nap, and we plan on going to the park this afternoon. I really love spring. I always feel like a new person, and like I can accomplish so much more in just those few extra minutes of daylight.

Looking at this book cover gives me the same warm feelings as petting the dog! Such happy times we had.....
