Spring is in the air

I think spring is finally here. Real spring, not a tease of warm weather that lulls you in to thinking winter is over before it rains for two weeks straight. We have had SO much rain here--it was unbelievable. I'm a huge fan of wet weather, but even for me it was a bit much. The sunshine and warm temps feel soooooo good.

Cory and I had lunch on Saturday and I gave her the neck cozy I knit in February. It looked so pretty on her that I couldn't stop looking at it. I rarely wear any of the items I knit, so it was a nice to see it in use rather than folded in a drawer.

We went to see the new Jane Eyre movie after lunch. It was so good! I highly recommend it-- the acting was superb and the cinematography was gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.

Today is Charlie's fifth birthday! He got his favorite salmon-flavored Fancy Feast for breakfast and a container of fresh kitty grass, which he loves. I adore my kitty.

I'm still having problems with Blogger. All of the sentences run together unless I add line breaks using HTML code. Does anyone else have this problem? I can't figure out how to fix it.

I'm going to be spending a lot of time with family this week and might not be around much. Hope it is spring in your neck of the woods and you are enjoying lots of sunshine and blossoms.

Awww...nice day out with Dogwood. What a sweetie. The neck cozy looks great on her.

I'm glad to see Spring has arrived in your part of the world. The snow is melting here, but very s-l-o-w-l-y. The temperature can barely stay above freezing.

Happy Birthday, Charlie! What a handsome boy!

I know you live in Northern California, but not sure how far north. My parents live in Fortuna and are definitely ready for sunny weather!

I'm excited to see Jane Eyre. It's not showing in Bakersfield yet, what a surprise, ha, ha. Oh! and I'm with you on Matthew McFeyden as Mr. Darcy for the same reason:)

Happy birthday Charlie! Our Charlie is only 2 years old. So wonderful that Spring is there, we are experiencing Autumn at the moment:)

That neck cozy looks so awesome on! Sometimes I think it's better to photograph someone wearing the creation -- gives it more life.

And, yes, I'm having the same problems with blogger and the line spacing. I've been working more in Draft as my default and it seems to help. Good luck!

Happy Birthday to your handsome Charlie!

Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS!

Oh, thanks for letting me know about the movie - that will be on my list! Your neck cozy looks so lovely. What a perfect item for spring. We have barely had a touch of spring here - still so cold and mucky. Enjoy your family!

Your rain made it here this morning and my power has been going on and off. I know we need the rain,but I do like to have electricity!
Enjoy your time with your family Stacy and tell Charlie Happy Birthday.

Kitty said...

Happy Birthday to the Kitty! Cat birthdays are important! I'm glad to hear that he had his favorite meal.

Thanks for the heads up about Jane Eyre. I can't wait to see it!

I think spring is here, finally!
WE do love our fur-kids!

Fun blog post. Fun fun day with you. Yes, the movie was wonderful and so well done.
Thanks for "touching up" my face where the scars were from my minor surgery.
Have a wonderful fabulous weekend with you family.
Hugs, Dogwood

Happy Birthday to Charlie!

Love your neck cozy...great color, too! I know what you mean about wet weather, but here there's hail, too, so it's not warm yet.

But I'm hoping soon. Glad you like the Jane Eyre movie, the previews looked I'll have to go too!
