Good Morning All,
So far I have managed to survive my re-entry to work. The days have been long and I have been pretty tired in the evening, but overall it was better than it could have been! And I had lovely presents waiting for me when I got back, and a vase of gorgeous tulips was delivered on Monday:
Today a group of us are going out to lunch at Davio's which is supposed to be great place...I'm excited!!
I've done a little bit of knitting on the sock since I last posted, but not much and nothing picture-worthy. Still hoping to finish it by the weekend and start the second one.
Meanwhile, Spring...or perhaps Summer...has arrived. Temps today are to be in the upper 80's and then hit 90 tomorrow! I don't like it really hot, but I'm enjoying being able to sit on our patio after work with a beverage and just relax before dinner. Our Redbud tree is doing so well this year. It is young and in the past has only had sparse blooms on a few branches. Many more this year:
The buds are still closed - once they open it will be gorgeous! (That's our shed to the right...sits at the edge of our woods.) And last night we noticed the first buds beginning to open on our apple tree.
With the expected heat today, I cooked some food last night (after dinner) for our dinner tonight - we'll have cold shrimp and a pasta salad loaded with peppers, onions, broccoli, sugar snap peas, marinated artichokes and Kalamata olives. I love coming home and having dinner already prepared!
That's my mid-week. There will be a few busy, busy weeks at work as our budget season starts today. Better busy than bored though! Hope your week is going well.
