Progress on the Lacey Keyhole Scarf and Sunshine

I worked carefully this morning, learning to read a pattern in a class and now purling and making purl ridges on the Lacey Keyhole Scarf!!!
My progress is here:

This is actually part one, the bottom will be attach to part two later.
I learned to purl.  I know that sounds elementary but it is an achievement for me today and there was something about purling that made me anxious. 
However, when I see the effect of the ridges I'm creating and then following some lace, I really loved it!
While this phrase is funny, I actually find little time to clean when I'm into a project. :o
Yesterday afternoon, I did see some nature friends around the homestead. Several blackbirds strutting their stuff and a squirrel that just looked so much like a Easter bunny eating his afternoon nuts. He is getting a little plump.
Probably wondering when Spring is going to actually get here.
Looking about, a reminder to me, that if God takes care of our feathered friends, He surely will take care of me.
It was nice to see sunshine, as we have had many cloudy, rainy days but the cold wind reminded me that Winter has a little bit more time to go.
The trees are barren except the evergreens but in a month or so the leaves will start making their presentation.
But right now, Mr. Darcy and I are enjoying the seasonal view of the mountains, and seems the birds are too.
I value my garden for being full of blackbirds than of cherries, and very frankly give them fruit for their songs~~~~Joseph Addison, 1672-1719
I hope you have a great start to your week, enjoying sunshine somewhere, whether it be nature, or needlework, friendships, or a favorite book or movie. Radiate your sunny energy in ways you love and love will come back to you.
Sweet Blessings to You,
