May 24

It has been a very busy spring.  Work has been swamped, getting prepared for this year’s fiber shows has been hectic, teaching, trying to keep up with the necessities of life, such as laundry and groceries, have been squeezed in here and there when possible, and the yard is running rampant.  In fact, about 2/3 of the yard still has yet to be mowed and really is tall enough to be cut and baled.  I hope to start remedying that problem this weekend with a yet to be bought weed-whacker of some sort.  It is beyond the weed-eater and mower at this point.

But, the flowers are beginning to bloom, mostly my peonies.


It was windy and growing dark when I got home last night, but I was able to get one nice picture of this year’s batch.

The three-day weekend ahead is going to be just as busy as the past few weeks have been, but, at least, I have this to remind me of the spring I have been missing outside.  Next year, I have to plan things out better so that I can enjoy the changing of the seasons from winter to summer more.
