Will someone please give me a few of their extra hours? (Assuming that anyone out there has any free time, LOL!) Life has been wonderful, but the time goes oh-so-fast! Spring is in full swing here, though this week has been damp and chilly. The house is surrounded by purple azaleas, but these in the front are the most outstanding.
Things are busy growing inside the house, too! My latest bunch off seeds, just planted this weekend, already have a few green shoots showing! Here are my future Brussels sprouts – aren’t they cute?
After walking the dogs this morning, Arden and I went on a second ‘flower hunt’ walk. We have a few pansies & petunias already blossoming in our window boxes, but the rest of the flowers are wild ones.
Today’s my last “free” day for a while – I’ll be working for the census for a couple of months and then there’s the possibility of a full-time job looming on the horizon after that. I have mixed feelings about it. While it will be undeniably nice to have a 2nd income, I’m dreading the stress of trying to do too much. Hopefully now that the kids are a little older, it will go more smoothly than in the past. It seems like the threat promise of impending employment has jacked up my creative juices. I’ve been busy stitching and designing all week (when I haven’t been gardening, baking, or doing stuff with the kids I mean, LOL). My Blackbird Designs exchange went out today and after suffering through the finishing process, I was really pleased with the final results and I hope my partner will be, too. I’ve sent off the next two models for the Gift of Stitching series. And on that subject, I really can’t thank you enough for your support and kind wishes! I’ve also got the fourth and final design about 90% done and I really, really like it. I’ve also started two other new designs. These are both intended as gifts but I don’t think the future recipients will mind if I share my progress. ;)
We’re taking the kids to the Shrine Circus this weekend, so it’ll be another busy one. Next week I plan to get my veggies out in the garden. Who knows, we may even fire up the lawnmower! I hope your upcoming weekend is fun-filled and healthy! :D
