Bits and Pieces

It's been a fairly slow week here at our house.  I've been doing some spring cleaning, knitting and cuddling with Sophie.

The skies are blue as blue can be in the Northwest with a cap of snow on Mt. Spokne.
My rhubarb is coming up!  A sure sign that spring is trying to make an appearance.
We still have about 1/2 of a cord of wood left for next season.
I've made some baby hats.
A baby blanket.
Another baby blanket on the needles.
When the green blanket is finished, I'll make a delivery of hats, blankets and a few burial blankets to the hospital.  Barbara has once again sent several of her knitted baby hats and two recieving blankets for the babys of Spokane.  I'll take a picture for my next post.

The weekend has no big plans and that's fun for me.  Hubby has had a very busy week and I'm ready for some nice relaxtion time with him.  

I've spent a lot time this week out in the yard with Chloe and Sophie.  I'm going to miss having the little furrball by the name of Sophie with me.  Her Mom comes home on Saturday so our days together are coming to an end.

I hope you're having a wonderful week and that spring is coming to your part of the world.

"Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.  Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs."  Psalm 100: 1,2



  1. Yeah for things springing from the Earth

  2. Glad you are having a lovely creative week, watching things come into bud :) xxx

  3. It sounds like you've had a productive week, Betsy. I'm so glad spring is making its way to where you are. It's exciting to see the rhubarb poking up. I hope you have a nice weekend. :)

  4. I'm so glad that your snow has stopped, finally! I'm also glad the roads will be clear for you to come visit your friends here in the Portland area! Love all your knitted and crochet projects, you're so fast it amazes me. See you soon.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  5. Our daffodils have opened up! So glad you are seeing signs of life in your plants, too :) Yea for all your beautiful stitching and your happy time with Sophie. Happy weekend with Dennis! xx

  6. Looks like a busy week. My tulip and crocus bulbs are sprouting out of the containers I planted a couple weekends ago! Next week...I'll be seeing you and a few other blogger friends. Can't wait!

  7. What a lovely picture of the mountain. It must be wonderful to be able to look out each day and see that lovely view. :)

    Awww please don't forget to give us one last photo of little Sophie before she goes. She really is a ball of cuteness!

    Love the baby things you have made and are working on. Such sweet heart felt gifts.

    Wishing you a most lovely day filled with many blessings sweet friend. :)

  8. I hope the warming trend continues for you. I wound up spending about 5 hours cleaning today. Kept putting it off so had to do something but when I look around, I think,what the heck did I do in those 5 hours? I can't keep up, that's for sure. I do like weekends without plans. Hubby and I stayed home the entire day. Nice to do that sometimes. Enjoy the weekend. Tammy

  9. Thanks, Betsy, for stopping by The Moksi Homes. I appreciate your support. Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Best wishes, Tammy

  10. I love the nice relaxed week you have had. The sky looks so beautiful. I spent a bit of time planting today, it was lovely.
    Hugs to you dear Betsy.
