Ironwood Tree

Ironwood Tree

Outside My Window… the ironwood tree has leaves! Spring has sprung here in southeast Arizona.

I am thinking… about my new crochet project, a granny square baby afghan using the leftover yarn from Liana’s birthday blanket kit.

I am thankful for… seeing zero scorpions in the last two weeks.

From the kitchen… breakfast dishes are in the sink, hummus and carrot/celery sticks are on the counter and salad sprouts are slowly sprouting.

I am hoping… Nashville would be lovely, I’d even take Dallas at this point.

I am reading… The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys, An American Saga by Doris Kearns Goodwin.

I am busy creating… the baby blanket I mentioned earlier.

I am hearing… the hum of various computers, the washing machine spinning, the floor fan blowing cool air into the office and the house air conditioner. It all seems a bit too much this morning.

Around the house & garden… I already tackled the Monday vacuuming, litter box cleaning and trash removal so I’m all ready for the trash pickup tomorrow. I still haven’t gotten back to cleaning either the front or back yard since earlier this month and I probably won’t this week either. I want to pick up some snapdragons to put into the flower beds in the backyard, just because.

In other news… The weekend was fairly productive, as I finished Liana’s baby blanket. Bill spent time studying and doing a bit of picking up in his half of the office. I finished our taxes last Thursday, but will be going over them again a couple of more times early this week, just to make sure, and then get them filed by the end of the week, since we are owed a refund, which is a nice change!

One of my favorite things… book stores. I spent over an hour at a Barnes & Noble book store Friday afternoon while Bill was taking a certification test. I bought something for my mom, for Liana, and even a book for myself!

Weekly Overview… Pest Control will be here tomorrow morning. I already picked up most of the week’s groceries last night, so maybe just a quick run later in the week to the co-op for some fresh produce. I will be looking over and then filing our taxes and then work a bit on Quicken, as I got a bit behind when I was sick the week before last. The plan is to get all the financial stuff out of the way this week and then be able to pick back up on my website in April. I also need to get Liana’s blanket washed and blocked and the same with Kat’s purple shawl.
