Mrs. Mac Of Late

... hopefully, not to be confused with the 'late Mrs. Mac ..

It's just been a bit dreary in the North Woods that my creative side has been stifled .. 'stuffed up' .. er .. whatever .. As soon as the sun decides to peek out from under the ongoing veil of storms .. I'll be back posting .. and I have a blog award to post.

Yesterday I managed to get to the garden center and buy some seed starting soil and peat pots . .. maybe that will get the fire going in my heart for SPRING!

Until then ...

Dear Mrs. Mac,
Your blog site looks so spring fresh, like buds may burst any time.
have the pre-spring blues. We have almost 12 hours of sun by now, but it doesn't help when ice and snow are covering our garden.
I have some seeds I think I need to sow in the near future, but I am not familiar with how.
Any ideas??
It's Ash Wednesday and I haven't even set forth the feathered Lent branches.
My oh my.
I've better go to sleep and hope for a better day tomorrow.

Here's to a quick return to your creative groove. I always enjoy hearing about what you're up to.

I love your header photo! Hey, come check out my latest post. You may have one of these honey/syrup dispensers. I repurposed one.

I am so ready for spring!

My very favourite flower - daffodils :-)

You are allowed a rest - though I am looking forward to reading your blog again...

Love your comforting, homey header picture. Hope you get some spring back into your step, now that winter is on it's way out.

Winter seems to be dragging on here too. I hope the sun shines on you today and gets those creative juices flowing. :)

Isn't it ugly out there...yuck. I bet there will be lots of flooding this year, maybe even around our lake. Did you hear that Lookout pass broke a world record for the most snowfall ever...6.5' in one week I think they said, most of it fell in a two day period...amazing. The snow fall in Spokane so far has been 66.5' and 108' in Coeur d'alene. Don't worry, springs coming...just dragging its feet a bit.:)

Mrs. Mac said...

Ahh .. your kind comments are warming :)

Mr. H .. yes, it is UGLY out! And .. I did hear that Lookout Pass had a world record .. glad I don't live up on that ridge ;) I think we have had more snow than CDA (don't ya think?) Spring is always welcome .. and so is some sunshine :) The past three years I've gone on mini trips during February .. to warm sunny spots .. and didn't even think about doing so this year .. well .. next year I hope to take a little end of winter vacation to keep from getting 'stale' ;)

dear mrs. mac...your daffodil looks just like the one that bernie and i have had in our garden for two weeks...it is the only one and i guess the cold weather is keeping it alive...i had to prop it up with two sticks because the strong wind was causing its little face to drag in the ground...now it is standing nice,albeit with a very dirty face!...ha!...hoping...REALLY hoping for warm weather, miss lilac princess....love terry
