Our House

I'm taking this time out to stop and smell the flowers. Literally. I had a bit of an unpleasant morning with some issues that popped up at work that legally, I can't speak about except to say, I don't recall. To make myself feel better, I went to Trader Joe's and bought Oatmeal Raisin Druid Circles, Sharfenberger chocolate, a Viennese Lemon Torte, fat laden salami and real gouda cheese. On the way home and just around the corner from TJ's, I stopped at Ewenique Knits.

Still feeling bad about above said issue which we still can't speak about in this paragraph, I bought 2 skeins of Jitterbug (I love that stuff), 2 darning needles, a pattern, a sheep shaped gauge measure and some stitch markers. Miraculously, only 6 druid circles later, I feel much better now. A bit bloated, but better.

This just in: beautiful lilacs bursting forth (the cold snap didn't harm them last night.)

My yard in spring is just so pretty. I love the color purple and this year, my irises haven't disappointed me.

This is the year I'm going to split these irises and plant them along the side of my house. There will be irises everywhere. They are the most stunning color of purple.

I can't begin to tell you what kind of tree this is. In spring it's loaded with white flowers. In the winter, red berries. This winter, I went outside to get the mail and there were dozens of birds (ala Alfred Hitchcock staging) feasting on the berries. The birds were fat and happy-obviously, there are Druid Circles for birds too.

Well, we share the same taste in some things at least. I love all of the treats you bought, except the RAISINS...and I have bearded irises everywhere. Our lilac tree died two years ago and now there is a veggie patch there. Nowhere else to put one, sadly...ciao

My husband looking in the grocery bags wanted to know where the groceries were. Seems I only bought treats. I only ate the cookies though so I don't feel so bad! I laid off the rest. If I still fill pitiful, I'll eat the rest!

I love my irises. The ones that haven't bloomed yet are full of buds and are the richest shade of purple.
