The weather turned suddenly last week. Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Warm, not hot!, in the day, cool at night. Blue sky, everything is growing and I can spend an entire day in the garden- or at least until I get too sun burnt to stay any longer! I was joking the other day that I'm getting tired of this perfect weather.
It could stay like this all summer (never above 80 for me!), with a gentle rain overnight every 5 or 6 days.
Of course this can only be accomplished on the days I do not have to work, or go to the doctor or the dentist ( how did all my check-ups get scheduled for the same week, anyway?), or ......
You know, when life isn't tugging me in three directions at once.
Last Saturday, Amy had two softball games. I don't get to see her play much because they play a lot of Tuesday and Thursday games (my work days)
|That's Amy at first base. (she pitched the early game)|
|Dad- my stepson- is also one of the coaches|
I did take some handwork with me. I worked on this flower for a while, but there was enough of a breeze that the thread kept getting tangled. Plus I'm out of practice doing hand applique, so I needed a more stable work space. So I worked on my sock for a bit when I wasn't watching the game. Baseball is a bit less boring when someone close to you is playing!
I finally got to enjoy the magnolia blossoms for more than an afternoon.
There are more blooms on my daffodils and narcissus this year than ever before
|Lungwort, or Toad Lily|
Even some of the early flowers are peeking out.
So who has time to sew? (maybe next time it rains)
My green thought this time is a reminder. You cannot - or at least you SHOULD not- throw compact fluorescent bulbs in the trash because they contain mercury! I saw a man at Home Depot bring some up to the service desk and the girl pointed to a place where they accept them. Good to know!!!
I am grateful for:
My boss plays along
My hubby takes good care of me
Lucas helping me dig some poppies for the garden.
Music that makes me feel like dancing. (I saw a quote once: there are few shortcuts to happiness and dancing is one of them!)
