A beautiful spring day

Wish I had a photo to show you, but it was the most beautiful spring day today. I actually took an hour off this afternoon and went down to walk by the lake. I'll try to remember my camera the next time I go.

Didn't get my Monkey Sock done but did get through the gusset so feel like I'm on the home stretch. I think I made this pair a little small so guess I'll have to wash and block for maximum stretch. I also need to learn to darn as I wore a hole in one of my favorite Spring Forward socks. I knew the yarn was a little soft for socks but was still learning about such things a year ago. It's not like I don't have enough yarn to make more :-)

The cats won't leave me alone since I got home! I guess being gone 17 days out of 21 was too much for them. I woke up with 17 lbs. of cat on my chest the last two nights. That's bad enough, but his brother was laying across my feet, making it difficult to move. Spent the morning at the vet with Icey our 21 year old cat. It appears she now has a chronic urinary tract infection and gallstones. They have to consult a specialist because of her age, so we are still waiting on recommendations.

Tomorrow is the first day of a learning community I am facilitating for nonprofit executives. Although I've been part of such communities, I've never been one in charge. Should be interesting. In a month I'll start another one in a neighboring community. They are really excited about making visionary change practical in their community.

You know I can't end the day without Rowan (who is actually walking now!! - look out world)

Poor Icey!

Rowan is growing like a weed.

Sorry to hear about Icy, Rowan on the walking video is so cute.

I'd like the walk in the spring sunshine. I was enjoying our spring preview but I think it's over for now.

Rowan is so cute. Walking is a big thing. Time to move everything out of his way!
