April 25, 2009 - Watching the flowers bloom

Watching the flowers bloom. That's about how much energy I have had this week, still not up to speed after battling the crud.

I look longingly at the sewing machine and my quilting projects and say, "Maybe tomorrow."

I do feel a bit more energetic today and I measured the front foyer so I can go order wallpaper, and I am patching the pocket of a pair of pants for my son. And I am backing up the computers. Not quite as exciting as watching the flowers bloom!

We're having a downpour this morning so I am sure the plants and grass will have quite a growth spurt in the next week.

That's the news from here for now!

April 13, 2009 - More photos of Phoebe

I discovered she loves to fetch a tennis ball, so that has become part of our daily routine.

She was bred last week with a handsome guy from Texas. We'll know in 3 or 4 weeks if she is pregnant. Exciting times!

April 13, 2009 - Spring!

The calendar says it's spring, and I have the daffodils and crocus to prove it, but we just had 15 minutes of big fluffy snowflakes, even though the thermometer says it is 43 degrees. Winter just does not give up easily in WI.

I have had a bad cold since last week so the only sewing that got done was patching my daughter's jeans. I have the blue and ecru Irish Chain quilt sitting on the cutting table waiting for borders. And I expect to get my Star Student back, quilted, from Patched Works some time this week.

I think I will go make some scalloped potatoes, comfort food for me, but definitely NOT comfort food for my husband : )
