I will be the first to admit that I’ve been a little spoiled this year compared to the rest of the country when it comes to winter snow. We missed most of the major storms that seemed to batter certain areas of the country. This week has made up for some of the storms we missed. 8” of snow on Monday (a tough 1-1/2 hour commute home), an icy 2 hour commute home on Wednesday, a long commute to work on Thursday due to an accident on icy roads that closed the highway over 5 hours, and 2-4” of snow predicted for today’s commute. I’m ready for spring!! I am soooo looking forward to the orchid show this weekend at Michigan State University. To feed my need for spring, here are pictures from the show 2 years ago.
This last picture is not a real orchid. It is actually made from clay plastic. It looks real, doesn’t it?
If you’re in the area of MSU in East Lansing on Saturday or Sunday, be sure to check out the (free) orchid show put on by the Greater Lansing Orchid Society. It also includes a vendor show where they sell orchids--very difficult temptation to resist!!
On the quilt front, I’ve been working away daily on the comfort quilt. I can’t believe that I’ve just about completed it in 2 weeks. The binding goes on this weekend and then I’m done. I’ll post pictures after the gift is given. Meanwhile, I’ve completely neglected your blogs over the last few weeks, so I have a lot to catch up on.
Take care, and THINK SPRING!
