I love you, Spring

While we wait for some sort of answer as to whether this weather is going to last or not, I’m going batty not gardening in the sunshine.  So, I asked dh if he’d put up the gazebo.  Last year we tore down the porch and the slab of cement has been so lonely.  I thought the gazebo would give us a sense of privacy again.  It hasn’t, but it still looks nice.  (and is a good place to get shade for the hot summer months)

And the peonies are coming up. They’re my all time favorite!

I caught dh practicing his golf swing.  He played for the first time of the season just the other day.  Here we go with the golf swing practice while waiting for dinner to cook, while waiting in lines at the store, while out having a drink, you name the place he’ll stop to check his golf swing (minus the club, of course).

(in fact, he’ll be checking the blog to see how his swing looks. :))

Anyway, here’s to hoping you’re having a fantabulous spring.

xxoo, G

my love affair with the library is back on.

Have you been on the edge of the seat, wondering if my library card worked or not?  Well, IT DID!!! I got books.  yay!!!  So, I’m in love with the library again.  All is good in the world now.

So, after getting a buttload of books at the library, my dd and I went to the hot dog stand, because yay! it is open.  That’s the first sign of spring/summer – the hot dog stand being open.  Usually, the tulips aren’t up yet, but since the weather has been so nice, those are up, too, and everything just feels so right in the world.  I wish I could put my seeds in the ground.  I cannot wait!!!  Anyway, at the hot dog stand, which by the way my ds and I are volunteering at tomorrow (moneys go to his school!!!), an old lady came up to me and my dd and said, “two peas in a pod,” very matteroffactly.  “Well, yes, indeed we are,” I replied.  And it’s totally true.  My mom says I am her best friend and I think my daughter is my best friend, too.  Doesn’t the thought of that just make you smile?

Well, and my ds is my bestie, too.

So, I decided to do a mini photo shoot:

Spring has officially sprung.

The tulips are sprouting!!!

Nature is amazing, isn’t it?

Mr. Sun, please shine down on me…

Yay, the sun came out today.  And while the kids rode bikes and played hopscotch, I looked for signs of spring.

And here’s a little sneak peek of what I have so far for the spring boutique:
