Short post without 100 photos. No need for a cup of coffee to wade through this one. I finished a few things. This little tunic is "Lollipops and Raindrops" by Elena Nodel. It's been in the WIP basket for a long time. Almost too long since it isn't a mite too big. If I'd waited a bit longer it might have been in the gift pile. Details on ravelry. I loved the pattern and it was a great stash buster. There isn't yarn leftover!

It flew by! I can't believe it's over! It started with a bike ride on the Banks/Vernonia Trail on a beautiful Saturday. From there the week packed a punch. One activity after another.Monday we celebrated our son in law's birthday with....Pizza! And cheesecake. What guy doesn't love pizza? He received hand made cards and a book from 3 of his children which he lovingly opened and admired. He is a blessed man.

And what a half of March it's been! I have nothing to show in the finished projects but there is a lot going on in my nook of the living room. Hopefully there will be something finished soon! Which is not to say there haven't been some fun happenings. We celebrated Dr. Seuss birthday. We celebrated it every year when my kids were little and it's fun to pick it back up again with grandmunchkins. Green eggs and ham and pink ink yink drink are always on the menu. I think she sports the pink ink yink drink mustache quite well.Then there was a grandmunchkin sleepover so Mom and Dad could have a date night. We played games, watched Peter Pan, and then all but Graypa and one grandson slept in the living room. We hauled out beds and blankets and had a grand time of it. The next morning it was off to a local coffee shop for hot chocolate and donuts and then to church. I'm sure there Sunday school teacher appreciated 4 hyped up pupils. I rested up in the nursery!

For Christmas this year our children gave us a weekend away at the beach. Oh my. I don't think they could have given us anything better. The beach, my favorite place. With my husband, just the two of us. Peace. It was wonderful. The weather was typical for this time of year, nice with good doses of rain. But a minus tide exposed tide pools below Haystock Rock and despite the wind and rain, we explored them and found over 20 whole sea dollars along the beach.Our hotel had this delightful courtyard where we would have stayed had the weather been better.
