spring's first blush...

it is warm today and for the first time in many months it feels like winter might fade enough to become a memory. i love each season, but my favorite parts of the years are when the seasons first indicate a change is coming. today is just such a time; a soft, optimistic glimmer of what's to come.

i've been under the weather for more than a week, but today has even indicated a wonderful change on that front, too, and i was able to get up to the studio at long last. felt good to get up here even though i didn't do the work i had planned on, but, instead, did the work that wanted to be done. funny how that works, huh?

the weather is to continue to be warm for the next few days, and since one of my oldest and dearest friends is gracing me with a visit this week for a few days, i'm hoping it will cooperate so we can have tea on the porch to celebrate our friendship.

a full week, restored health, and lots of wine and girl talk should have me ready to return to the studio daily again next monday. it's been a lovely, lovely respite, but i really feel the need to have a go at some of the ideas that have been bouncing around in my head!

happy spring to you!
