ostara celebration!

we've been celebrating and welcoming in spring since thursday. hubby got work off on friday which was really nice. we made our spring altar.here's a close up of the little hanky i got last fall at an insulator/bottle show-too cute to pass up-i got a green one too.(see it on the the right side of the altar)the hens seemed to feel the vernal equinox -as we got our first 10 egg day ever-which means all of the girls popped out an egg that day! thanks ladies!on friday we also went on a hike with the boys-on the way we spotted a place that had been logged and look what we found-liam was in heaven.i'm so happy that our boys ages 16 and 10 (we are talking double digits here)-still like to color eggs at spring time-that they are not too "cool" to imbibe in such practices. although the process doesn't seem to take as long as it once did. and yes-we still do an egg hunt. although next year i think we'll have the boys hide them for hubby and i to find.i've been busy trying to get my new potato patch ready. last years site was way too small! we love our prates in this house-we are not afraid of carbohydrates. i was trying to get them planted by st. paddy's day-ha! i have to dig deep and lay the damn gopher wire down which is a pain in the ass.-literally a pain in my ass! so it's slow going. but i did manage to plant a small patch of peas, scallions and radishes.hey look! it's me!ha ha ha hee hee hee-april fools!!! gee i guess i'm early for once-i couldn't resist. although all you knitters out there know her-yes-she's the gorgeous model for interweave knits magazine. i guess i couldn't fool you guys. unless you really thought i was the interweave knit model-ha! okay. anyway-she's modeling the effin sweater i have wanted to knit for myself since the issue came out back in------i'm very excited to finally start it as i finally have yarn for it-i chose cascade 220 as it is in my budget, they have great colors and it's soft. i hope to get it finished for fall equinox! here's the yarn-color #4010. purchased from my local yarn store-meadow farm.the color is way more awesome in real life. it's a warm, golden, wheaty, lite mustardy woodsy, wooly, yummy, tasty, delectable steph color.

we also found time to enjoy a bit of magic watching one of my favorite childhood movies-"bedknobs and broomsticks" back when disney was worth watching.happy spring!!!!!!!!!!!

Did Liam find any old bodies in the dead car? I've always wanted to set up a picture with a skull sporting a hat of some kind in one of these deceased car finds.

I loved seeing your display and you and Liam both like to collect similar things to some of my favorites... where did you find that truck?
