Busy life

The weather is just beautiful here in Texas right now.  Spring is my favorite time of year.  My yard is green - around here if it is green and grows, we call it a lawn, even if most of it is weedy!  It is still pretty.  My hubby has been known to mow around the weedy flowers just so I'll have something pretty to look at!  He also mows around birds nests that are on the ground until the birdies have hatched. Before Easter, he also mowed mazes in the back so the grand kids would have places to hide eggs.  They loved it!   So if you drive by my house and notice that there are some unmowed areas, that is the reason.
This is a pic of my youngest granddaughter during our egg hunt! See that maze!! 

My tomato plants are blooming - and the weeds are threatening to take over the garden already!  We've already had lots of asparagus, and I've used some of my herbs in cooking!  It should be a great year for gardening if we have enough rain, and fewer water restrictions than last year.

I've been so busy at work that I haven't gotten a lot of quilting done, but I have finished a quilt for my friend, Sonya.  Below is a pic of her quilt on the Gammill.

I'm off to the post office and for a walk with my hubby - actually we are combining both and walking to the post office to mail a package.  Multi-tasking!  Have a wonderful day!

  1. Yeah, that sounds like a great excuse for not mowing! Ha,ha! I say lawn too but we have alot of weeds too. They are green and that's what counts, huh?! We have to mow constantly in Spring just to keep the weeds at bay. I can't mow in Spring as my allergies kill me so DH does most of it. When things quit budding out, I can help.

    Sonya's quilt looks great. You are doing so good with those stars. Your method works! Keep it up.
