Au Revoire Snow!

We are finally going to get some nice weather for the weekend, knock on wood. And there is a rake with my name on it. Never in my whole life have I been more pumped for yard work.

Spring Where You At Baby?

What a beautiful winter sunset. Not! It is May 14th! And the lake is still frozen and there is snow on the ground and I am getting very angry!

Boy I can't believe that it's Tuesday already, it seems like I have been so busy lately(I almost forgot to call my mom on mothers day). This weekend I got my flowers started, something I probably should have done in April but hey, better late then never right? Besides our growing season here is much later then everyone else, especially with all this snow we have been getting.

In about 6-8 weeks I will have some beautiful petunias, pansies, and snap dragons to plant outside. I can't wait!
For the rest of the week I have much spring cleaning to do before my brother and some friends come up to visit for the long weekend. If I can find the time I would really like to get started on some new projects.

There is this cute bag that will be great for spring/summer to haul around all kinds of stuff. When it come to bags, for me bigger is definitely better. The pattern actually came with my sewing machine and I just tossed it aside and totally forgot about it. I'm hoping it will be nice and easy so I don't mess it up. The fabric I picked up a couple a weekends ago when I was in the city, my friend took me to Mitchell's(or as I like to say 'heaven'). The floral print is vintage and for the bottom of the bag I chose a navy blue jean.

Then I also got some nice light jersey cotton for for this little top circa 1976. The pattern is from
Anywho, I got lot's of work to get done.
Will post again soon,

Happy Friday!

Yes I made a snowman today. Not what I had originally planned to do today, oh well. My mom gave me a bunch of perennials that I am excited to get in the ground, but I guess it will have to wait till next weekend. Maybe. Weather permitting.
Have a great weekend everybody!
I will post again soon,

Snow Day..............In May?!

That's right I woke up to snow on the ground this morning, and it's still coming down. Wtf! It seems like mother nature skipped over summer and went right to November, I don't know if I'm suppose to keep working on my bathing suit bod or bring out the Christmas decorations. So depressing.

Some birdies outside my office window.

This is my Alfie having some fun in the fresh snow. He doesn't usually look at the camera(he is afraid), but I tricked him with a stick.
