Sunday Stuff ~

Happy Sunday, dear friends.  I hope this finds you happy and healthy, social distancing, and doing everything possible to stay that way.

This week I was able to accomplish some yardwork.  The weather wasn't yardwork perfect, but I made do.  In fact, I am about half done with the spring cleanup.  I have never done yard work in March :)  

Sweet mini daffodils

I did manage to already catch poison ivy.  Not sure how it happened since I had on a jacket and gloves.  Funny.  When I moved here in 1999, there was lots of poison ivy along the neighbor's fence/my yard.  I tore it out and never got poison ivy.  Along that same fence, coming from the neighbor's side, I've now gotten it for three years.  I guess the old body is changing in more ways than I can possibly imagine.  Today I even mowed the lawn :)  It feels so good to play outdoors.

I finally have been hooking.  Just a mindless hit 'n miss runner that I am making for a friend's May birthday.  It will end up being about 4 1/2' long with each square being just over 4".  I am about half done and getting bored.  Something different will soon be on the frame!

Not much to blog about when one is home all the time.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Hate to admit this but back in the day Little Debbie Bars with coffee was my breakfast. Yes, yard work time is here again and my body can't take much work in a day of bending over.

No green things or yardwork here fact, it's snowing. Sigh. Can't believe it's lawn-mowing time by you already. YIKES! Happy Sunday to you...stay safe and sane. ~Robin~

I love the why the dog chews the furniture.
We have done some yard work in between snow storms. But I have been cleaning out some things.
and started a new rug.

A good meal is what we look forward to at the end of a ‘stay at home’ day ! Spending much more time in the kitchen these days - the treats are rolling out like a bakery!
Beautiful rug hooking for your friend.

I can't remember ever pulling so many weeds in March, as I have this year. Thankfully, it is raining today so I have a day of rest from that tiresome job. I love the hooked rug. I can imagine it on my not-so-fancy dining table!

I Amin the yard, too, but it is much warmer here. Prepping the veggie garden beds...we usually plant on Good Friday. Like your hit or miss. Such mindless fun to hook those.
