Spring Is In The Air!

Today was our nicest day so far this year. Once the wind died down it was downright warm.. yeah that ever present wind we seem to have. It does die down in the late afternoon. I went out with Mark and the dogs before dinner. We heard the gulls flying overhead singing their hearts out, spring tonic for me, I love the gulls, they are so beautiful! While we walked we spied little pussy willows bursting forth, and closer to the ground were millions of snow fleas, springtails.. jumping everywhere. Whoohoo spring is in the air!!
I couldn't sleep last night, so I got out of bed, came down here, and installed an upgrade to the operating system on my computer. It took longer than I imagined it would so I went into Thomas's room and played with beads. I started working on a sun catcher. I finished it this morning. I absolutely love it, I have used some of Gillian's gorgeous translucent lampwork glass beads mixed with glass beads and copper chain. Gorgeous!

Gulls! How terrific. I saw my first flock of Starlings. I know they are a hated bird, but any sign of spring is welcome with me - even if it is Starlings!
