This and that and spring

I have proof that spring is on it's way:

My yard is gray and muddy, but there is a lot happening under the surface.

I sorted out the recycling this evening, thinking of the Flight of the Conchords lyric from the song "Business Time." It goes
"It`s business.
It`s business time.
Next thing you know we`re in the bathroom brushing our teeth. That`s all part of it, that`s foreplay. Then you go sort out the recycling. That`s not part of it but it`s still very important."

After I sorted our metal, glass and #2 plastic, I carried it out to the curb and I actually felt the warmth of the sun on my back. It's great.

I feel thrilled that I have a day off tomorrow. I am celebrating by watching King of the Hill. The episode called "The Father, the Son and J.C." seems serendipitous to me. Bobby thinks Jimmy Carter is Jesus Christ. His grandpa says he was "...Nobody but a one-termin' peanut farmer...henpecked by OPEC" and Hank says, "Man wore a sweater." I recently watched the Jimmy Carter film and have a bit of a crush on him. Too bad he didn't voice the actual character.

This is my latest project:

I can whip up one of these bowls in a few hours now. I've found a pattern I like, which makes sizes that are not too big and actually sturdy. I love all the colors that yarn comes in. It's inspiring.

The first time I heard "Business Time" I guffawed at the recycling part. Honestly, it was a guffaw. :-)

I was wondering if I could possibly purchase a set (or two) of these for my toddler classroom?
I LOVE them! You are such a gem.
