This weekend found our amazing above average temperatures replaced with more seasonable ones and a bit of much needed rain.

Everything around the town is in bloom about six weeks too early. My beautiful Daffodils are almost in full bloom but are weighted down with the large raindrops.  Much of the Forsythia bushes are also in bloom, looking like large bushes of yellow fireworks around the town.

I guess I won’t dwell on the fact that they are predicting a hard frost on Tuesday night. I can only hope that all the beauty that has been forced into an early spring will survive. On a happier note, I was excited to see the spread of so much of the moss I planted last year. All those shiny clean rocks are now aged with pretty moss.

We tried a new tea. We had been drinking the Traditional Medicinal Weightless tea.  I had originally bought it to help with digestion, but fell in love with the licorice taste. When I saw Spicy Licorice Mint by a   local company called White Heron at our local specialty store, I had to try it!  It has even more flavor than the weightless tea and is loose leaf, which I always like better.

The kid has been making his own pudding. Yes, the boxed kind. He has to read the instructions, then I let him add the milk on his own and mix it up. Tonight it was pistachio- a very artificial colored green, but he was very excited it was green like the hulk.

Lastly, I got some knitting in. I have separated the sleeves from the body of Griff’s newest sweater and had him try it on. It’s a great fit!

A great weekend for sure. What was on your list this weekend?

    Ooo, I love that tweedy wool. What’s the pattern? The cables are sweet.

    We love a new tea around….perhaps too much as we are overflowing with teas already. ;)

    Sounds like a lovely weekend, hope your garden thrives. We are having a snowy day here!

    Our season is way ahead too and as of now it looks like I won’t have anything still in bloom for Easter!
    Your tea sounds lovely! I make a gallon pitcher of tea a day year round to go in the fridge for my guy’s [it is the south you know], but I love to enjoy a hot cup of tea in the afternoon. I have been drinking African Red Rooibos tea and loving it!

    So wishing for Spring, I love to see the flowers! We still have some snow here. Licorice tea sounds awesome, must find some.
