We made it to Friday, so cheers for that. It has been a busy week work-wise for me. I've missed walking, but the weather hasn't been the best anyway. More grey and damp today. Some are saying a chance of snow on Saturday. I'm not listening/not paying attention/ refuse to believe!
First of all, Happy Mother's Day to all. Some of us have human children, some of us have animal children, all of us nurture something or someone. I'll be remembering my own Mom (and missing her) and Fletcher's Mom (and missing her too).
No new Granny Squares since Wednesday. The heel of Tutti Fruitty sock #2 has been turned and gusset stitches picked up. Hopefully I will knit down the foot today/tomorrow and this pair of socks will be completed over the weekend. I'd like to wind the yarn from Make Do (Vicki) and cast on a hitchhiker. And, if it is as chilly as forecast, I think I will cook a turkey breast that has been sitting in the freezer for months. And then make a big pot of turkey soup! That's pretty much as far as any weekend plans for me go. IF the weather cooperates, I'd love to get outside...yet TBD.
Meanwhile, let's see what's been happening around the yard. Big news: the fig plant that the deer munched on last year and left for dead appears to have revived!! There are several buds on one of the twig stalks. Happy!! Even bigger news:
We have two Asian Pears forming on our little tree!!! There were so many blooms we hoped we would get a pear or two, but didn't expect to see them so early!
The sugar snap peas are growing quickly and climbing the trellis. No blooms yet, but it won't be long:
And the rhubarb is now flowering:
That's another weekend thing - I need to harvest some rhubarb and bake a pie 😊
Our wisteria seems less full than usual - a bit on the sparse side, but still very pretty and so fragrant:
Given today's forecast (rain - heavy at times) I decided to cut a lilac bloom to bring inside:
Gorgeous, non? Early this morning (4:30!!) Tyg wanted to go out. When I walked downstairs and headed towards the kitchen to let him out on the patio, all I could smell was lilac. It was wonderful!
And that wraps up things for me today. I have a conference call in an hour and then another one after that. I'm hoping for an easy afternoon! Have a wonderful weekend.
