Wishing for Spring

Happy Easter 
I thought this was a rather adorable bunny.  

We had a very yummy dinner at my Aunt's.   The best thing is always when someone else cooks.  She did nearly have a nervous breakdown on Friday when she was trying to make the cheese cake and the oven was far from cooperative. It is anew oven and there is something wrong with the thermostat.  Of course being a holiday weekend you can't get anyone to fix it.  I did bring her a thermometer to check the temperature in the oven.  

I have been making a little progress on the Hollyberry Farm.  I'm not pushing it.  I do have until Christmas to finish this.
I have been working a little more On my Prairie Schooler April small since it is April tomorrow.

I also finished the front of Katy's sweater this morning after church.  I have started the ribbing on the first sleeve.  Often I knit both sleeves at the same time but, I decided I wouldn't with this sweater.  It gets too heavy and my fingers get more sore than they use to.
It really is a fun pattern to knit.  There is enough going on to keep it interesting but, not too much that you really have to concentrate on it hard/  

March is definitely going out like a lion this weekend.  The weather was absolutely horrible yesterday.  My mom had to come to town to go to H&R Block to get her taxes done.  The weather was okay not great when she got here.  We were in there about 40 minutes.  When we came out, there was an inch of very wet, heavy snow.   As soon as I got her car brushed off, it could have been brushed off again.  The roads were incredibly slippery.  She lives about 8-10 miles away and I drove her home because the roads were so bad.  Maybe this is the reason I had the loan Impala for as long as I did.  She has an Impala so, I was use to driving it in really bad conditions.  It isn't anything like my Escape in the snow.  Bob then met me at her house and we went to the movies and saw Olympus Has Fallen.  It was a good shoot em up movie.  

We are all hoping the Easter Bunny gets some spring moving into the area.  I would be happy if we just didn't have any more snow and the temperature stayed at least in the forties...just the average.  I don't think I'm asking for much.  

Thanks for stopping.  Thanks for all the wonderful comments.  I love to hear from you.  
Hope you had a great weekend and your week goes well.  I know I have a very busy week ahead of me.  I hope I can stay awake in the evening long enough to do a little stitching.  
Keep on Stitching
