Spring is coming, slowly...
We had a big snowfall last week... We got about 50 cm of snow, so spring got a bit belated. It's been cold and grey for days, but today the sky turned blue and we had temperatures around 8 C :) The snow is melting again and this water puddle is like a magnet to Endre.
We brought our lunch with us out, and food do taste better outdoors ;) We could here water stream, small birds singing, a grouse in the forest and a bunch of seagulls. When the seagulls have come it's definitely spring. But waking at 5.30 in the morning because one of them are yelling right outside our bedroom window is not fun!
With Endre in sight in the water puddle, I could knit some rows on this. See, it's not a sock I have brought out with me ;) I'm kitting a Tappan Zee Cardigan, hoping I have enough yarn.
I've been using glasses since I was 8, and I got my first contact lens when I was 16. After I had kids it was just easier to put on my glasses, so the last five years or so I haven't used lenses. I have very, very bad eyesight... I have high myopia with -6 and a bit on both eyes, so I'm practically blind without them ;) When I put on my make-up I'm so close to the mirror my nose almost touches it *lol* But for each kids I have got, my eyesight have become a little better. Anyway, since I'm using glasses, the sun has always been bad to my eyes. They don't make sunglasses with more than -3 or -4, so I've been going for years squinting my eyes to the sun. But not anymore :) With the huge sunglasses which are populare now, I can put them over my glasses ;)
