I've been busy busy busy helping my son with some projects for school so my crafty output has been very low. I did find time to finish my Fiber Optics Tequila Sunrise socks and will try to take some pictures tomorrow, if we have any sun. And that is a big if. I haven't seen any sun for days. Its been gray, cold and rainy yuck. Luckily I have some pictures of my garden goodies that I took last week.
Here are the first peony blooms in my garden.
Isn't that pink gorgeous. It is electric. These flowers seemed to be lit from within. Did you pick up on my change in tense? They were beautiful and then the rain came and beat the daylights out of them. Every single petal is gone - insert unhappy face.
Now this goodie should be pretty no matter what the weather.
My boys gave me this for Mother's Day. Those birds bob up and down and spin round and round with the breeze. I love it.
The one bird looks a bit like a chicken and it has little bumps on it like polka dot. Pretty cool, huh?
Along with school projects I've been battling with my laptop. It is dying. Let me bow my head and observe a moment of silence for this wonderful companion. Ok -- I've been complaining for weeks that I need a new laptop, however, in this house only certain people think they are capable of selecting and purchasing new electronics and this person has NOT been working on this. Getting a new laptop is a double edged sword. It will be great not to have to jiggle and wiggle the power cord so it makes a connection but I will have to learn the ins and outs of a new laptop. I don't like spending the time to learn what I need to know. Remember I'm ADHD I want to jump right in and speed off. Big sigh----ahhhh.
