Hello my friends, on this sunshiny Tuesday evening. I have to admit, this is my absolute favorite time of year. It's still light out until after 9:00 p.m. and the sun is up around 4:30 in the morning. The days will keep getting longer for over a week before the trend reverses. Of course we pay for this delightful light we have now in the winter, when the days only have about 7 hours of light. The nights are cool, (in the 40's and daytime temps in the 70's. Beautiful!!!
The peony bush has a broken limb from the storm last Tuesday. I didn't have the heart to take pictures of my flowers I just planted. They were stripped of all the blooms and leaves, but they're still alive so I'm trying to nurse them back to health with miracle grow.
We had some severe washouts that I spent Friday shoveling crushed granite into, to try to fill them in. This was the smallest one.
We have been kicking around the idea of putting sod in this area to try to hold the hill up from washouts. Our neighbor put a sprinkler system and sod in last weekend and gave us his sod leftovers. I'm planning to pick up more sod on Friday on my way to the lake. We're hoping the roots will keep the hill from washing out during rainstorms.
Friday night's campfire. Marshmallows were toasted and s'mores were consumed.
Fishermen all alone on the lake early Monday morning. This was about 6:00 a.m., when I took an early morning walk.
Well. I guess they did have this duck sharing the water with them. :-)
Crocheting and relaxing in my zero gravity chair yesterday. See my toes?
Sun tea brewing in a half gallon mason jar in the sunlight. Pretty and yummy.
We're having our patio at the house resealed at the early hour of 6:00 a.m. tomorrow, so I came home today and cleaned house. I also washed the bedding on all three beds, remade the beds, washed clothes, vacuumed, ironed, trimmed bushes, cut rhubarb, washed the patio, went to Shopko, and Walmart, got gas in the truck, cleaned the baptistry at church. Then Hubby took me to Arby's for dinner. I'm tired but by getting everything done today I can go back to the lake until Thursday after they're done with the patio in the morning.
Here are a few pictures of my one rosebush. Aren't they beautiful?
I only have the one bush so I try to enjoy the flowers it produces.
I'm still plugging away on the runner and have a little over four rows to go. That equals about 13 squares then the border. Meanwhile, Pammy Sue has asked me to test crochet a pattern for her so I'm going to take a break from the runner for a couple of days and make her pattern. Pictures to come.
I hope you're all having a wonderful spring and specifically a wonderful week. I am so grateful for each one of you taking the time to read my blog. You all mean so much to me and I hope you know it! :-)
Blessings my friends,
