The quilt is finished and was handed off to my niece as soon as the last stitch was tied.  It went into use immediately.   

Lincoln's tie was finished in time for our family Easter celebration and I have cast on his sweater.  I am working on it a little bit each day, happy in the knowledge that I have all summer to finish it.  

Saturday we planted our first seeds (broccoli, carrots, green onions, peas, kale, lettuces).  We are a bit behind schedule for the cool weather crops, but even a small harvest will be welcome.  

Sunday we killed and butchered our last two roosters (the hens were thankful!), and stacked wood and cleaned up the backyard.  We also dyed Easter eggs.  

Monday was the most beautiful day of the year so far.  We were able to hang laundry on the line and play outside barefoot.  I made it out to the berry patch to admire all the swollen buds on the blackberry, raspberry, and blueberry bushes.   

Today we planted potatoes and chucked rocks out of the garden.  We didn't even begin to make a dent in the rock population.    

We have been wonderfully busy, and I am so very looking forward to more of these days.
