mint green

i started crocheting a mint green short sleeved sweater the other night. this is my first sweater, so i will see how it turns out.

and my garden is still bloomy, so that is good.

how i do

In the past couple days i started working on another doily. i haven't crocheted much lately, and doing it again reminded me of why i like it. so much.

and i have started being a very good gardener.
i usually do not do very well with plants. i've had an african violet for more than a year. and it had one flower one time.
but i think things are changing, i have a flower box with pansies that are alive and flowery. so today i added a geranium and a dahlia.

and i have been going to thrift stores and trying to find other flowery things.

bows and books

it has been so warm. too warm.
today i am going to eat a blondie for breakfast. and then later we are taking the little pig to the vet.
also when it starts to get hot out, it makes me think of summer, which makes me think of reading. and i love to read. i've been going through a lot of books from when i was younger, and i lately remembered the betsy tacy books! my mom read them to stacia and me. they are delicious.

next on the list is the little house on the prairie series. and some louisa may alcott. and anne of green gables.

this easter was really nice. we stayed home most of the day and ate sour patch watermelons. and then went to our night church to celebrate. i wore an easter dress that i got at the thrift store by our house.

and i took a picture with easter fig.

and we went to see the easter gazebo.

today i played with some old clip on earings from my mom, and i ate delicious lemon bars that she sent me in my easter basket. i daydream and real dream about food that i really want to eat, and i had been dreaming about lemon bars lately. and they showed up on my doorstep the other day! it was a miricle.
