Spring needs to have sprung YESTERDAY.

I am really tired of looking out the window at white. Thankfully it is slowly being replaced by geen.
I’ll have to come back online later to post some photos, but the seedlings I started about two weeks ago are up. The only ones still behind the eightball are the greenpeppers, but they normally take about two and a half weeks to sprout. All fifteen silver fir tomatoes, all fifteen cherry tomatoes, two pumpkins, three squash, six string beans, and six peas have come up with seemingly no issues. We bought the tomatoe and pepper seeds. The pea and bean starters we had left over from last year. Our pride and joy right now are the pumpkins and squash. Those are ones we “harvested” last year from a couple that we bought and some that we were given. Now we just need to get the starter potatoes in a few weeks and order the corn seeds, or make a trip down to Johnny’s Seeds. We’re planning on next weekend to start cutting up the trees to make the raised beds out of. I love the feeling of knowing that we’ll have blanched peas and beans in our freezer, pureed squash and pumpkin for baking, and sauce by the cans in the basement all winter!
In other news, I’m finally back to knitting. I seemed to have taken a month long hiatus from it. After Grammy passed away at the end of February, I had no want to do any crafts. However, after the melt down I had the other night, it has come to my attention that I can not let my emotions rule whether or not I need to perform certain actions, even if such actions are as simple as picking up a knitting needle. So right now I’m working on a small gift for someone and taking a break from the larger crochet projects.
In other news, I finally dyed my hair again! Or, should I say, Joe dyed it for me. Back to red. Thankfully! For some reason my real hair color (medium brown) has never really seemed to fit my personality. I do have to say that the vibrance of the color is a bit striking, but very pretty overall. Like I said, I’ll have to post some pictures later.
