Weather Hexie on Feline Friday

It's been cool the past couple of weeks.  But that is okay.  Our maple syrup production depends on above freezing temps during the day and below freezing temps at night.  And that is what has been happening.  This is week 9.  Unfortunately my weather hexie is kind of boring.  It's totally green.

3.8C   2C   3.1C   0.5C   5.3C   3.2C   3.9C

Even though it is cold out, I have lots of colour indoors.

This is one of my orchids

And this is another.  (sorry for the blurry picture)

Last week I looked out into my solarium and saw that my Amaryllis was about to bloom.  It had been sitting dormant since last year.  I love it when plants seem to take care of themselves,

And then there is Felix.  He has not been feeling himself for a while.  But he seems to be doing better lately. 

Meow!  Go away with that camera.  Me wants to sit here in peace and quiet.  

Here my sweet kitty is washing his face.

Meow!  Me needs to look nice!  

Okay Felix.  Is it spring fever you are suffering from?

Meow!  Spring fever nothing.  Me just wants to look nice.

International Women's Day and a Weather Hexie

Today is International Women's Day.   A day to celebrate all the wonderful women in our lives.

A bouquet of tulips for all my women friends.

This is my hexie rosette for this week, week 9.  It was a crazy week, weatherwise.

Weather Hexies - Week 8

It was a beautiful day yesterday.  I rode my scooter to my Tuesday morning Quilting Group.  It was the first time I was able to get over there on my scooter since before Christmas.

I also went to the library.  And on my way home I stopped off at the mall.  I know it is a bit optimistic, but I bought a packet of Arugula seeds.  Don't worry.  I won't plant them for a while.  But I wanted some Arugula last year and I couldn't find any.

I also bought a bunch of tulips.  Just because.

And here is my week 8 hexie rosette.

This is for the week of February 19 to 25.

5.8C   16.5C   14.6C   1.2C   6.9C   6.2C   12.8C

No freezing daytime temps.  Incredible!   But that should change in the next couple of days.  Tomorrow night we are supposed to get snow   Yikes!  The Friday morning rush hour should be a mess.

My sewing machine is fixed.  It's just perfect!  I am catching up on some of my projects.

I am linking up with Sarah did it.

Weather Hexie Week 7

I finished another weather hexie.  This is week 7 for me.  We had a few chilly days, but for the most part it wasn't too bad.

-1.8C    -0.8C    5.7C    9.6C    4.8C    -0.4C   4.5

My sewing machine was not working.  But then Deb, told me about Larry.  He fixed my machine many years ago, but I had lost touch with him.  Deb gave me his new location.  I took my machine in to have him take a look at it.  He called me today and says I can come and pick it up.  Thanks Deb!

Many Hexies

I thought I would show you my hexie project.  I still have lots to do on this.  I am just making it up as I go along.  For the past month or so I have not worked on it much.  My eyes were giving me problems, but now everything seems to be okay again.  I plan to work on it this weekend.  It's a long weekend for us.  Family Day is on Monday.  I am using a white on white background and a variety of scraps for the coloured hexies.  This is a fantastic project for using up scraps!

Sarah of sarahdidit asked for anyone who was working on some English paper piecing to join her and show their work.  I don't know if this qualifies, but I am going to link up to her blog anyway.

Feeling Under the Weather

I have been feeling a bit under the weather this week.  I don't know if it is because of a new medication my doctor prescribed, or something I ate, or a bug of some sort.  But it has not been a great week.
