Well, I guess our consolation prize for losing an hour of our Sunday, we get treated to a gorgeous and early Spring.
The weather in Boston has been incredible. I almost don’t want to hit publish for fear that it will all disappear back into the typical rainy, chilly Spring.
We had a great, but busy weekend. Someone celebrated a birthday, and a certain someone’s wife ran around like a crazy person all weekend cleaning, prepping, calling for back-up catering (thank you, Blue Ribbon BBQ, awesome as always…), then downing a few drinks with friends and collapsing into bed exhausted!
It was a long week, a busy Saturday (the birthday boy requested a homemade red velvet cake with white chocolate frosting…) and Sunday was full of stitching, laundry, tv and a little gardening!
So exciting to see the hints of Spring… I only have one plant that is showing no signs of life! Woohoo! We put in lots of young plants last year, so I’m happy that we nurtured them enough to make it through a (mild) winter!
Now, about the fact that we have a dog racetrack and no grass in the yard. I wish this was an exaggeration, but no, we have nothing but mud. And, not only mud, but mud in the shape of a racetrack, where they have started to bank their turns on the corners of the garden.
So, excuse me while I flip the blinds down on the backside of the house, pour myself another little rum drink, open the windows to enjoy the fresh air and plop down in my favorite stitching chair and forget about my ‘to do’ list for a while.
To keep you captivated on my incredibly ordinary life, here are a few pictures from the weekend!
Started and stitched with Neon Rays and Kreinik…
So, I’m off to put my feet up, stitch some more and watch some reality TV! Hope you aren’t dragging as much as I am from Daylight Savings time and that you are getting a hint of Spring as well!
Until I find the urge to write again…
