I've been slacking again on my blog post writing... Things here have been very busy, and most days I haven't had the energy left in the evening to do much of anything let alone write something that would make sense. So today I thought I'd just share some pictures with a few words here and there. I should be able to accomplish that.
The shipping season has started, and on Saturday we seen the first boat go through. It was the Paul R. Tregurtha, which is my favourite boat.
Over the next few days many more have gone by, and I got some pictures of a couple:

We've also had some sweet little deer hanging around the house lately trying to get snacks from what they can reach of the cedar trees. Here they are taking a nap in the little bush just outside our house.
I did get some knitting done over the weekend. I made up these little hats for our local hospital's maternity ward. Well, not the ribbed one, I did that one months ago, but the striped ones are new.
Yesterday I crocheted some pretty spring flowers. I'm not sure just yet what I am going to do with them, but they sure were fun to make! I've had an idea of a bunting floating around in my head, so we shall see.
Well, I need to get myself back to work. I was just taking a coffee break between batches of maple caramel popcorn. Easter weekend is always our busiest weekend of the whole maple syrup season, so I need to have extra product available for sale. I hope you all have a lovely day!!
P.S. Thank you all so much for the sweet words and excitedness that you've shared with me, both here in the comments and over on Ravelry, about the finished Granny Patchwork!! It still hasn't made it onto my bed yet due to an incident involving my little Yorkie, cat pee and my duvet cover. But in the meantime while everything airs out, I've been using it on my window bench as a lap blanket and have found it to be very snuggly and warm!
