I see the Moon and the Moon sees me

We've been sky-gazing.  The moon was so bright the other night that Steve was certain our plants were growing even while we slept.  We even got out the telescope and looked at Saturn and stars and enjoyed the warm, clear evening. 

The weather couldn't have been more perfect and it was a great weekend to have a visitor.  Charlotte is at its finest in the spring. 

We went downtown to check out the St. Patrick's Day parade and festivities. 

Steve even wore green, but Kath and I were too cool for that.  Also, how would someone find us if we got lost in that sea of green-wearing people? 

Side note: at one point, I said, "Look at that woman up there carrying the tiny dog... she's in a green shirt.." and then I felt very silly because that was the worst way ever to distinguish someone from the crowd.

There is lots of interesting stuff to see downtown and it is always fun to see it through the eyes of a visitor.  Everything seems rare and new. 

My favorite part of the festival was the Irish dancing.  These kids are amazing!  Possibly the most amazing part though is their curly ringlets that bounce up and down while they dance.  After much discussion, we decided that they were mostly fake.  But the dancing was all real and totally cool and I am left to wonder where you learn to dance like that because I think it could be a useful life skill. 

Today, after more laundry, guest room cleaning, and vacuuming (does anyone else feel like I just did this?), I am getting down to business and sewing away the afternoon.  I feel like it's been awhile since I've shared any recipes, so I'm gather some of my favorite things to make in the spring and we'll have a recipe day later this week.

  1. Yes I'm glad someone else noticed the mooon- when I was up for the 3am nursing- I was wondering why someone had the lights on outside and looked out the window and realized it was the moon- Rose and I gazed at it for a bit before falling asleep again- too cool!
