Spring Hath Arrived

And about time, too!

In other news, I seem to have lost the little whozits on the side of my blog. I was just trying to update my template and get rid of the snowy landscape! I'll have to dredge through my memory and try to recreate them. (On the other hand, if I can't remember what was in them, perhaps I should forget about it altogether.)

We're going on our belated anniversary trip this weekend. It's at Landoll's Mochican Castle, and we'll be there from tonight through Sunday afternoon. There's really not much to do in the area, which is just fine with us. Boring is good. :)

The Big Secret knitting project is complete, but cannot be revealed on the blog until the recipient has opened the package. Just in case. (If it were for my mother, I wouldn't worry a bit.)

So that's my exciting life -- not too exciting, really, but I didn't want to maintain radio silence for too long. Again.
