Hello and Good Morning!
I had not intended to NOT post yesterday, but...I slept in a bit and really my weekend was not all that exciting. Good but not exciting. I did meet up with Dee as is our habit on Saturday mornings and that was delightful as always. The balance of the weekend was filled with some chores, but also some knitting and reading and stitching. And I took no pictures. I also had a number of errands to run yesterday morning, so after I got some laundry going, I went out.
There is a stand of bamboo that I have passed many times and I've always wanted to get a picture. As luck would have it there is almost always traffic behind me which prevents me from slowing down to take a picture. Yesterday luck was on my side!
You need to click to enlarge so that you can see ALL the panda bears that someone has placed in among the bamboo. Too funny and too cute! This is actually just down the road from Colin's offce (here in PA...not TX), so I sent the picture to him. He knew exactly where I had been!
Today we are saying goodbye to February and getting ready to welcome in March. March can still be pretty fickle, so don't put away your woolens just yet. Yesterday did warm up a bit late morning and I decided to get out while I could to walk after lunch. Once again I walked along the Perkiomen Trail which runs by the Perkiomen Creek. There were SO MANY geese again.
Instead of my usual jaunt, I turned left from the parking lot and went down the trail in the opposite direction. I do love seeing a pretty stone wall covered in moss and lichen.
I won't pass this wall in warmer weather - there are very large snakes in that wall - this is near Colin's office and he has seen them numerous times.
I also love seeing a line of Sycamore Trees. They always look so stately and graceful to me.
There are so many beautiful homes in this area - many perched high above the water with mostly glass fronts. What views they must have!
I had hoped to spend the afternoon stitching, but work interrupted those plans! I did, however, do a little more since last Tuesday.
After I calmed down work and the multiple emails, it was time to prep dinner. I made a new recipe last night: Sticky Tofu
which turned out well.
It's the first time I've cooked tofu and I did manage to get it crispy and the sauce was delicious. I call that a win! I think I liked it more than Fletch, but he did have more than one serving!!
And then our fickle weather showed up. I was talking on the phone to a friend and opened the door for Mabel. This is what I saw:
If you enlarge, you will see some solar lights that are on around our arbor at the entrance to our woods. That is all the snow we got, though it remained cool overnight. The tops of cars are still covered. Hopefully the sun will do it's job on the windshields before we leave to go grocery shopping.
This has turned into a long, rambling post. Thanks for sticking with me (if you are still here). Wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday!
