That’s a stumper. Truthfully, I don’t really know that you all do care – yet I seem to be getting followers and likes. I tried to explain the community of bloggers, of knitters, of crafters, of writers. I failed miserably. I did tell her how amazed I am to have so many international followers, she still didn’t get it. So, why do you follow me? What is it about what I am up to today that makes you keep reading??
Meanwhile, since you seem to – here’s what I did today –
Went for a walk this morning – haven’t walked in a long time, and if we are going to Monhegan in 2 weeks, I had better get ready! It was the first morning in the last 7 that it wasn’t raining, so that was good. 🙂
When we got back, we had a message from sister-in-law L that she was on her way over to plant her 4 foot raised bed. So I planted the last of my seeds with her, and then we dug some day lilies out of the overgrown bank and moved them to what will someday be the front garden. Then we let A make us some delicious burgers for lunch, before L headed out. A spent the time we were out doors cleaning up her work space in the basement, and entertaining the cats. She reports that the mama phoebe is sitting on the nest – so I suspect there are eggs now! The cats are annoyed to not be allowed on their little deck, but that’s OK with me.
The hummingbirds are active, there is a pair who are feeding hungrily, they must have just arrived. That makes two pairs here so far, we will see how many we get now. I have a lot more flowers around this year.
Lots of buds on the red rose, and the wild roses are really spreading out this year, finally. Can’t wait to see how they look all covered with blossoms in a few weeks.
The asparagus is all up and leafing out, I hope this experiment works,a nd we get some to eat in a few years – meanwhile I interplanted it with cosmos to make the pool look less of an eyesore.
I scooped the pool from the outside today – it is FULL, but very chilly, so I didn’t; feel like getting into it. I will eventually, don’t you worry. Next weekend look pretty busy, but if Friday is nice, I might get into it then.
Now A is watching an afternoon of WNBA – Griner on the bench – will her first year of the pros look like her first year at Baylor? Lots of bench time. Meanwhile, Skylar Diggins had a rough game, but I thought she did pretty well for a rookie. And Delladonne is looking good – showing that perhaps she should have been the number one draft pick? 🙂 Sue Bird in the studio – so nice to have someone calm analyzing the games, not getting all excited and shouting at us (I mean you, Carolyn Peck and Rebecca Lobo!)
I finished a lightweight scarf in a heather purple wool/silk blend, which I will send off to the lucky person who responded to my Pay It Forward post quite a while ago – I might remember to take a photo of it before I send it off. As only one person entered that contest, I think Crimson Crow at aml8aml8 might be able to figure out it is for her. 🙂 Now I am working on a light blue scarf in lace weight alpaca/silk blend using a linen stitch. I might keep this one.
Yesterday I spent some time in the craft room – cleaning up the mess from the never finished Easter cards, and getting ready to do a little sewing. I worked out the pattern adjustments for a skirt, and cut it out from some leftover material I had, so I can be sure I got it right before I cut into the new more expensive fabric. Can’t wait to need summer skirts – it should be any time now, if the rain stays away, the weather WILL warm up. 🙂
Back to work tomorrow….
