Back to the Grind

I so did not want to get up this morning and come to work. Leo woke me up several times during the night. Why I don't know but I let him out the first time. After that he had to lay back down and go back to sleep. I hate when he does that. It's not even full moon either. He didn't do it Friday night or Saturday night. Here's where I found him yesterday morning.

I didn't do what I said I was going to do. I didn't do much crocheting at all this weekend. It was too nice to be inside. I puttered around outside all weekend. I bought another clematis to plant and this other plant, astillbe, I think that's misspelled. It's some kind of bulb with beautiful flowers. Both were already starting to sprout. I noticed yesterday that my patio peach is starting to bloom. The flowers are so pretty.

I made the sausage casserole that Bev posted on her blog the other day here. It was to die for. I ate a bunch of it after I made it (brunch) and then again for dinner. I will definitely make that again, and may add or change up a couple of things.
I need a new camera. I'm not happy at all with how most of my pics are turning out. :o(

I went out at work this morning to get the mail and found a pleasant surrounding of Bradford Pears bloomed out. I had to go get my camera because the blooms don't last long. Aren't they pretty? The almost look like snow.

I like this pic best:

I was hoping I could get some pics of some red bud trees. They are very pretty.

Hope your day was good.  I'm ready to get back to the hacienda. I'm grilling pork chops when I get there.


  1. The tree looks great but I think the trunk is begging for a bit of yarnbombing. :)

  2. OMGosh I love the idea that CrochetBlogger had about yarnbombing the tree trunk! Too funny.
    Sounds like you've had a great weekend. Leo is just beyond cute catching a few z's in the chair. : )

    Blessings always

  3. I am alive and well . . . and havebeen spending HOURS a day online looking for links to 1700-1800 ancestors . . . DAMN! One side of my maternal family line was SO PRODUCTIVE, if you know what I mean.

    How would you like me to send you copies of the kicker pattern I AND the buntings I have? Oh, and the sleeper is pretty awesome too. Then, you can get more hints on what you want to make?

  4. OH geesh I hate it when one of the dogs wake me up in the night. Friday night - 2:00 a.m. What is up with that? And I can't let one out without the other. I haven't been crocheting much lately either. Can't get in the mood...and it's not warm out here. It's still pretty cold. I love the rebuds and can't wait for them to be blooming here.
