Oh, the wind.....I just despise you! You make my eyes water and itch, my nose run and sneeze, your howls embed in my brain. It's my only complaint about living in New Mexico. I moved here 20 years ago and fell in love immediately. (Oh sure, there are other minor annoyances, but not enough to write about). I love the food, raising my family here, the people, the culture, the history, the climate......all but the wind. I brace myself for it every year, and grit my teeth through it 'til it's over and I can walk outside and start gardening and soak up summer weather.
But for now? I take my Flonase (not working so well this year), carry my eye drops around with me, turn on music to distract me from the howling, and look forward to calmer days.
We're looking to order more fabrics - Alexander Henry, Freespirit. The last big batch ordered is going fast! Quilt Market this spring is in Pittsburgh in May. Maybe, just maybe, we can swing going....!
Don't forget to move your clocks up an hour tonight!
