Well, we've started a good spring bloom around here. Normally, this is when white things bloom in my yard. I've always thought white flowers were so hard to grow, so I don't have many and they all bloom early, while it's still cool weather. The first is this spirea.
I also have some lovely yellow columbine.
And, the crabapple is finally giving me a good bloom after about 10 years of petting it. It started as a stick and hopefully, I'll finally get some fruit this year.
Well, just to prove there's no such thing as a free puppy, Bella has spent the day at the vets office having a little surgery to correct a bad mistake that was made while she was being spayed. Great...I had to pay the adoption service to spay her and now I've had to pay my vet to fix that.
To distract Sydney, we spent the day shopping. I needed clothes and you can imagine how excited she was to shop with me. But, we found some cute t-shirts for her and she needed a new light jacket since she lost her hoodie this week as a consequence for being a dumba$$.
We needed ink to print the stuff for her science project, but wouldn't you know it, it was $10 cheaper to buy a new printer. What's up with that??? Disposable everything. Now, don't get me wrong, I loved my old printer, but it didn't have a scanner and the new one does. I'll keep the old one and give it to Rob when I get a new laptop. The new one can connect to the laptop wirelessly...oooohhh. Fancy schmancy.
And, I pieced the last block of a quilt I started last year and have been adding the sashing. I've been collecting batiks for years and not made a quilt. Last year's $5 quilt was all batiks and that's the one I'm working on. Hopefully pictures soon.
Take care and have a great Good Friday. It's certainly been good to us...well, Bella may not think so. But I'm having fun. Lane
