Adam has plans to meet his friend and 18thc. tailor, Chris halfway between us, in Nashua NH at a Dunkin' Donuts on Sunday to give Chris the silk fabric for his 1740 suit, and to have Chris take his measurements. He is justafyably excited about at long last getting a 'fancy' period suit of clothes.
My new 18thc. sacque back gown is also in the works. The fabric should be at the designer's next week, and she will then prepare the muslin for fitting and send it to me.
Our 5th wedding anniversary is in late spring, and as always, we plan an 18thc. picnic somewhere nice and plan to schedule it after we both have our new outfits, and can wear them for the first time, for our special celebration outing.

The sun is out today, but it's still cool and the grass is still not green. The daffodils are up, but not in bloom yet. I have just heard that this weekend is supposed to be sunny and in the 60's and 70's, and I couldn't be more thrilled. I think we'll finally see some of spring's green start to pop out!
I am doing more lawn raking today---it's a big job. I put some grass seed down in front, in places where we dug up and transplanted some plants in favor of plain grass, and will seed some spots out back after the raking is finished.
The birds are singing today, and I just filled the feeder with seed.
