Look! It got warm! We spent most of the day outside enjoying the warm sunshine and all the crocus in the yard.
I happily toiled for hours digging nettle roots out of the garden bed I hope to plant in very soon. The nettle was six feet high when we moved in, so the roots are everywhere and deep. Such a lot of work for the smallest space, but nothing makes me happier than digging in the garden.
Not much school was done today... a little painting... can you tell we're excited about Spring?!
A green, semi-Irish dinner... potatoes with almond-arugula pesto and a green salad.
The leprechauns made an overnight visit and played the usual tricks-- moving furniture, turning things upside-down, and making things green. The kids were delighted, as always. However, this year something was extra fishy. In addition to the chocolates for the kids, the leprechauns left a couple presents for Einstein and me. This has never happened before... but I have to admit, one of those leprechauns is a fine little knitter.
Wishing you all a beautiful, warm St. Patrick's Day!
