Day 91 of 366

We're doing some early egg decorating today while M is home.
Sometimes you just have to do things when it works for you.

Day 90 of 366

I bought pansies a couple days ago.  I NEVER buy pansies, 
but they were so pretty they were begging to live by my front door.
So I bought pansies.

I found this squirrel's nest under the hood of my car today.
Hopefully they have not done any permanent damage.

Day 87 of 366

While I was out taking pictures of the trees this evening,
these guys started circling overhead.
The focus isn't great but they were moving pretty quickly
and then left the area just a quickly.

Day 84 of 366

My sister likes to place tiny magnetic toys around my house when she comes to visit.
We usually leave them there.  This one is on a lamp base.
It has been there for years.

Day 82 of 366

The Pioneer Woman came to town today for a book signing.
Just before our turn it was time for a quick break and a Starbucks drink.
The store expected about 300 people.  There were closer to 1000.
I waited over 5 hours.  Worth the wait.

This was the biggest strawberry I have ever seen!
I didn't measure but it was at least 3 inches tall.

Day 79 of 366

As promised, here is a view of the Bradford Pear in full bloom.

As an added note, to the left is a shot of the trees in their entirety and to the right is my favorite shot. It did not get picked as picture of the day because it was taken from the back side to get the lighting but doesn't really show what the flowers look like.  Click either picture to see it larger.

Day 78 of 366

I just noticed the redbuds today.  They are trying to bloom too.
I'm sure they won't have any trouble with temperatures in the 70s predicted for the week.

Day 77 of 366

This Bradford Pear in my back yard is almost ready.  I can't wait.
I'll be sure to show you when it's in full bloom.

Day 70 of 366

Today was a little on the cool side
but it was still nice enough to hang M's hand-washed dresses outside.

Day 69 of 366

I was recently gifted with another sewing machine.
A little repair is needed before I can test it to see if it works.

Day 68 of 366

An unfortunate misplacement of fabric today means
I will spend this evening "unsewing" and resewing.

If it's Tuesday, it must be quilt meeting night.
This quilt just came back from the quilter and its maker is working on the binding.

I made this valance for my son and daughter-in-law
from their wedding reception table runner fabric.
