We have color in the backyard! Our Wisteria has popped out a couple blooms. I was hanging laundry the other day and it smells heavenly. I can't wait until our whole pergola is covered with them.
I finished another pair of Emilies in blues, I just haven't gotten around to taking good shots yet. And today is dark and rainy, so it won't be for awhile still! But just know, I do have things being finished.
Like this! I'm nearly done with the Chinook shawl. I started the border last night, and I am merrily working along on it. I had put it down for a few days to be distracted by other things ( like a silly little hat for Tyler that I'll share later). Never fear though, I have another shawl pattern waiting to begin. It's a Mystery shawl, and you know how much I love those. :)
I made Orange Chicken from total scratch the other night (as opposed to using the popcorn chicken cheat) and my, how I had forgotten how good it is freshly fried. I had also forgotten that it takes me 2 hours to make. Oy.
Tomorrow is St. Patrick's day! Do you have your Corned Beef?? I DO! And I'm so excited. I've been waiting for corned beef since January!
The Great Backyard Landscape of 2011 continues. Ben has the garden curbs completely finished, which means half the curbs are left, as well as sprinklers. It was very difficult for me to not buy seeds at the grocery store today. (Although knowing I could get them cheaper somewhere else helped.) I want plants so badly. We've been making a list of things to plant, and I've been making a planting chart. My Spring fever is incurable!
It's Wednesday! Half way to the weekend, baby.
