Happy Earth Day

Happy Earth Day everyone!

Feel free to translate that as "I got nothing today." That's not exactly true but it's darn close. I certainly don't have photographic evidence of what I've been up to. No pictures of the crochet potholders I've made (although I love them) and no new progress shots of That Damn Vest or the red and black socks. Nada.
The truth is that the stuff I'm up to this week isn't particularly good blog fodder. I'm dragging my heels on filing documents for my dad's estate because I loathe the job of executrix in a major way. I'm planning the rest of this year for Stinkerbelle's Girl Scout troop which is complicated by all of the other activities these girls are into. I'm also planning Stinkette's birthday party - she's gonna be TEN. I cannot tell you how that freaks me out. That's just some of it but you get the picture - lot's of no fun stuff.
On the positive side, construction of our new deck continues despite the nasty weather we've had. Mentally I'm already lounging on my deck with a tall glass of iced tea, listening to good tunes while I read or knit.
On an actual Earth Day note, I have not yet bought a composter or planted my seeds for this years garden yet. I wonder if it's too late to start my seeds. Maybe I'll plant them this evening as a celebration of earth day and hope for the best. The worst that can happen is that they don't grow and I go buy seedlings (yet again) from the local nursery.

Gorgeous photo!

My daughter is going to be 20 (!) this year, talk about a wakeup call and time passing quickly... ;o)

We had snow showers here today! I'm seeing it as the last gasp and thinking I'll plant some tomorrow.

Beautiful cherry blossoms! I know what you mean about the estate stuff. Ugh.
