There are still cows that are calving so there is added work when a spring snowstorm comes in. By Saturday we totaled up an inch of rain which was most welcomed. Overnight we accumulated some snow. Not much. Just enough to make the grass white. As Sunday is being spent, the snow continues to fall, but it doesn't accumulate much on the ground. The dirt roads are not covered at all, but only the grass is white. We call spring snow "poor man's fertilizer" because it is coming in slowly and soaks in slowly. We do hope we get a little run-off into the ponds and reservoirs. Fresh water is always a need in springtime to carry livestock through the summer months when it gets hot.

This is my Bossa Nova Skirt.
And for Mother's Day (wishing YOU a happy one!!) I sewed myself yet another skirt. This one is SO easy and so quick and takes just one yard of fabric. It is a knit pencil skirt, and I found the free instructions and video tutorial over at Dana Made It. I love that the skirt fits close to the body, but has a lot of give because it's a knit. I think a knee-length pencil is very attractive. Do you?
