Wednesday, being a lovely day, I decided to cut some branches for our Ostara tree. It was a few days early but it makes me feel like spring is here. I was quite happy with the results and so was himself. Later in the evening we heard a crash.......Oh No! The tree was down, wooden, tin and plastic eggs of all sizes rolling all over the floor. Mini wooden bunnies scattered here and there and five cats banging the eggs back and forth across the living room with their eyes sparkling. How did it come down? The culprit was Malachi! Guess he figured he'd make it a fun evening for the rest of them.
Tree before the crash.
I now have it put up and decorated once again but have changed the spot it's in. Hopefully it won't come crashing down again.
Thursday I made an Irish Soda Bread and it was very much enjoyed by both of us with butter and jam.
This is a funny time of year for me. I'm waiting to get out in the garden and it seems to be taking so long to do so. But then I have to stop and say to myself.....it is only March after all. Never the less, I can't wait to get a shovel in the ground.
Today is a bit of a miserable day. It's been snowing lightly most of the day. The only ones with any sense it seems are the cats. The five of them decided to go to bed, lol.
I noticed this morning that the pussy willows were coming out...a sure sign that Spring isn't far away. So, tomorrow morning we will do some drumming to wake Mother Nature and a small ritual in honor of the Spring Equinox.
