A Perfect Spring Day!

I didn't do any quilting today. None. Not even one stitch! But I was busy though.

It was a beautiful day. warm and springlike. The sun was shining. The birds were singing. The crocuses were blooming on my lawn. I decided to take my scooter and go out for a little jaunt. Having no idea of where to go, I let my scooter take me where it wanted to. I passed by the school where my daughter teaches. I stopped in and found a beautiful mural on the wall in the entrance way. It was all made by the students - out of paper mache! They had some help from an artist, but each student had something up to contribute to the mural. This is the part I liked the best. A robin's nest. What could be more springlike?

I continued on my way and my scooter drove me past the school where I last worked. I went in, not really knowing what to expect. It was a great experience! I talked to fellow colleagues who I hadn't seen for years. And there were still some of my former students who recognized me. They looked wonderful, although a little (actually a whole lot) taller! One of the students told me he was graduating in June. He invited me to the graduation. I think I will go!

Then I was back on the road. My scooter took me through spring woods, still sound asleep and then down to the lake. It made a left turn and I ended up......... at a local quilt shop! Oh my! What a great scooter I have. It knows exactly where I like to go. Since I was there, I had to buy some fabric - of course. When I got home I was exhausted, but very content and happy. It was a perfect spring day!

Sounds like a magic scooter, for sure. That sure was a beautiful mural. I love seeing things that kids make.

Nice spring post.

Glad you are feeling better and
that you had a spring day out on your scooter. That means spring
has reached where you live. Right?

I think your scooter is pre programmed to go to all the quilt stores! Glad you got out and enjoyed the day.

There are lots of spring days to follow, I hope!
I am glad you are able to enjoy your scooter.
And that you can go out now and meet people.

That robin has now made a nest and taken possesion of the light above our front porch.
He tolerates the mailman but we have to enter the house via the side door.
And the cats are only allowed behind the house! They are offended. But we had the robins there before and can't wait to see the little ones fly out.
For several reasons!!
