Spring Fever

I am so glad that February is over. I shouldn't be wishing my life away, but I really do not like winter.

Day before yesterday I noticed a sign at the seed store that said they had onions and peas. I was elated! Yay! That means planting season! So yesterday I stopped in and got some red onions. I wanted Georgia Sweet too, but they won't be in until next week. I went home after work and pulled out my old faithful Honda mini tiller, put in some gas and oil and fired her up! She is so reliable, always starts for me, but my husband has a hard time getting her started. LOL I tilled just enough room to plant about 30 red onions. It felt so good to get my hands dirty again. The smell of freshly turned earth is on my top ten list of favorite smells.

The top picture is the purse and stuffed dog that I made for my sister for her birthday. I felt a little silly about giving her the dog, she was 41 years old after all, but she says it was her favorite gift and it rides around with her in her car. Now my niece wants the exact same thing for her birthday and I am glad because both were fun to make!
Thanks for the nice comments on my blog! I am just a beginner, so bear with me while I figure blogland out!

I noticed you visited and commented on my site, and I wanted to come over here and say Hi! I see you're new, too, but you started yours before I did.
Welcome to the blogging world. It's kinda fun, isn't it?
I love the puppy and purse you made. I haven't attempted anything that "big" yet.
Come back soon!
I'll be back to read more.
