Unbelievable! DH was able to till the garden today. Unheard of here, in March!

After a meeting of quilt club one night last week, some of us observed how Jupiter and Venus were so bright in the night sky. You could hardly miss it if you glanced up – they were the only lights visible in the sky. By the time I drove home, got out of the car and looked up again (30 minutes later) the sky was jammed with stars. How’d THAT happen so fast? I dunno.

Speaking of happening so fast ... my back yard looks like it needs to be mowed already. And the sheep keep sticking their heads thru the pasture fence, trying to get the "greener on the other side" stuff. DH and I take turns helping them get their heads unstuck. What fools! Is it any wonder we're oft compared to sheep in Scripture?

I finished up Mary C's pile of Quilts For Kids last night -- here's the last six:

(She made eleven of these this year. She is a busy woman, but always finds time to do for others.)

I've been reading an interesting book this week, a little every night before bedtime. Here's a quote I found particularly interesting: "Men who did not know that they were slaves do not know that they have been freed."

The book was first written in 1966 by Milton Mayer: They Thought They Were Free -- it's about Germany after the collapse of Hitler's "Thousand Years Reich." Veddy in-te-rest-ing.
