And now it's March

I suppose one could say that March "came in like a lion" as this morning we awoke to five new inches of snow. It's a light fluffy snow, quite pretty, doesn't seem to have much moisture in it though. Should be gone by Tuesday when we are told we'll get some rain. Real precipitation would be much appreciated as a dry winter can affect some the plants adversely.

I did end up wearing the color work hat and finding that I like it. It's warm and soft and if I leave my hair down I don't look quite so dorky as I do in the picture I posted. I have more hats than I could wear out in the rest of this lifetime.

Cast on a hat for my daughter's friend to wear during chemo when as we all know her hair will fall out. Had some nice soft yarn in a blue that is almost navy but almost purple...a deep rich shade at any rate. Spent the morning researching the best yarns to use and was grateful to have some Knit Picks "Shine" in my stash so am trying a pattern called, The Giving Tree. I so love the book that the name alone was enough to draw me to the pattern but am also interested in the tree shaped textured patterns that encircle the body of the hat.

Erin and Anah came out today for lunch. She brought roasted veggies and I cooked a roast for French Dip sandwiches. Awesome food. I am always grateful that we have access to clean food here on the farm.

Hoping to plant peas next weekend when the temps warm up to above freezing. We had the best pea crop ever last year. Grew a different variety, Wando, a heirloom. Love heirlooms, they can take the weather so much better without needing to be pampered. I cannot imagine that 19th century gardeners had drip systems and sprinklers. :)

I did well with exercise last week. Yoga nearly every day, the bike twice and walked a mile using a program on a DVD. Woke up this morning feeling better than usual, but by afternoon, starting getting some pain in my lower back. Really happy with the results of taking the beta-blocker. My blood pressure has never been so low. The fatigue side effect is lessening, though I sometimes think I'm going to be tired for the rest of my life ..lol and the heart palpitations are so rare as to be totally ignored at last.

Finished another hat for the donation box. May consider it full enough and go ahead and ship it, if I mess around it will be too hot for hats.

Pandora is really great for music. I can still be amazed by technology. And I can still remember a time without television. My granddaughter, Anah, tells me that I am just at the beginning of O L D. She also says 75 is the middle. I've always planned to make it to 92, but most certainly only The Universe knows.

What a wonderful post to begin the new month with. I liked your new hat a lot, and can picture you in it with your beautiful, windblown hair flowing out of it. Your new one called the Giving Tree sounds delightful.

Good on you for the walking and bike riding! Those are my two forms of exercise also, but I don't do them nearly enough. As you mentioned, when you do them, you feel so much better.

I remember a time without television also. I was eight or nine, I think, when we got our first one. The awe of it all lasted many years with me.

Don't get nearly enough exercise so I tend to be self congratulatory when I do.

Glad you like the hat, I was quite unsure of it at first.
