Crafty Friday – Early Spring March 5, 2010

Yesterday my sister took her son during spring break to the Ste Anne de Bellevue Eco Museum, a private, non-profit, 11.3 hectare educational wildlife park – operated by the St. Lawrence Valley Natural History Society – where you can take a stroll with or without the children year round and view beautiful animals in their natural habitats.  My children love it there, my daughter especially could watch the otter swim for hours on end, although she often reminds me that she doesn’t like porcupines because they are stinky (and they are!).

My sister had a rare surprise yesterday, never before had the black bears come out of hibernation so early! It must have been quite the event because even local television reporters were running amok asking for interviews. I have a fabulous feeling this means our glorious weather is here to stay! The snow on my front lawn is patchy at best, the roads are nasty and dirty and daily I see more children out on their bicycles (still getting stuck in little pieces of ice). I love this feeling, it takes me out of a my yearly winter blues funk.

Today’s Crafty Friday feature is things that make me feel like spring –
