The Good

I have been suffering from cabin fever for the past few weeks, so I think I should tell you about the good things that are happening around here right now. On the kitchen front - The Home Depot is going to exchange the cabinets and give us the ones we ordered. So that's a good thing. It will take a few weeks, but at least things are going in the right direction.
We still have a bit of snow and it has been very cold this past week.

But today the temperature is going up to 2C. The next few days will also be sunny with temps above the freezing point. That should get rid of the snow and melt the icicles that are still hanging from my solarium. Another good thing! But even with the cold and snow, my early spring bulbs are making me happy. Here are some crocus and snowdrops that have defied the cold and snow of winter. Aren't they pretty? A good thing for sure! Another good thing is the package that came in the mail from Sew Sisters today. It contained my fat quarters from the Bargain Lovers Club. These were supposed to be here a couple of weeks ago. I even phoned the store to see if they had sent them. I was assured that they had and that our postal service was to blame. The owner asked me to wait just a few more days. And that is what I did and this is what was in my mailbox today. It was postmarked March 14th, so I guess the post office was to blame. I love the bright colours! A very pretty package of fat quarters and that is a good thing. And the fact that they came today is another good thing. Because today is my birthday! What more could a quilter ask for on her birthday? Tonight I am going to our guild's meeting. A quilting friend is going to give me a ride. And that is a very good thing! My final good thing is Oscar, waiting for me at the top of the stairs while I was outside looking at my garden. He always worries about me when I go out. He is so cute and that makes me happy too! A very good thing, don't you agree?

Happy Birthday Hetty

That's a nice bunch of fat quarters to brighten your day and the sun certainly helped even though it's still a tad cold. I hope you had a nice quild meeting.

Many good things have happened to you and that is a good thing!
I also love the colours of your delayed package and the cute Oscar who is sitting there waiting for you.
The snow is starting to melt here also to the joy of our daily visiting cats.

I see I missed way to many posts! I can't believe you still have snow with you. Today we wil be having about 24C (((o: Exceptionally, but wonderful. So, off to wash my car and work in the garden. Your spring flowers look oh so pretty. And I love your spring butterfly. What a clever block.
Hope Mimi gets her catnips soon (what are those?)
