This afternoon I'm doing redwork embroidery as part of my 2014 project; there'll be more about that in a day or so. I could start another puzzle, one I got for Christmas, that I'm certain will take me days to finish! Haven't you heard to keep your mind busy as you age? Maybe that's a goal I work for in these puzzles. A friend tried to get me to solve some Sudoku number puzzles; have you ever worked these? It just didn't sink into my brain, this filling in squares just so-so. I'm thinking, instead of keeping my brain active and alert, these puzzles might drive me cuckoo!
Last week I took these pictures as a swarm of birds visited for only a few minutes. I've seen these all my life but don't know what they're called.
As the little song from Charlotte's Web says, "Chin up, chin up..." Spring will be here someday!
