I am hoping this and all my other plants that are coming up and getting ready to bloom can handle the insta-freeze headed our way. I guess it wouldn’t be spring around here if we didn’t go from near 90 one day to freezing the next.
After not being able to work on that pendant yesterday and complaining rather loudly to Hubby, I realized that I was going to be way too frustrated by the time he got home to just borrow his reading glasses to work on it. That and he would need to take them with him when he went to work today so I broke down and we went and picked me up a pair after he got home so I don’t have to worry about stealing his. *Sigh* He and the kids could not let it go without at least a dozen “granny glasses” comments, so it is official. I have “granny glasses”. At least I can see to do what I need to do and I’ll be trying it again today.
It’s funny. I tried to see if it made a difference in what I can read, thinking maybe things really hadn’t been as clear as I’d believed. Uh, no. Not even close. I cannot read with those suckers on. I can see the individual lines of the tiny wires I need to see, but forget trying to wear them for anything else, so I guess I don’t feel quite so bad. Lots of jewelers need to use loupes and magnifiers to see some of that tiny detail work, so I shouldn’t be so upset that I need a little help as well.
This week’s to do list is long. Full of things I need to do and appointments. I’ll be taking breaks as I can to enjoy the flowers starting to come up, keeping my fingers crossed that we don’t get the late freeze everyone keeps saying is possible.
My kids are on spring break this week. Normally, this would just be a quiet week with them hanging out, being lazy in their rooms playing games. This year, BG has decided she wants to do things instead. She watched movies with me yesterday, has plans for a friend to come over today and out to do something with another friend tomorrow. All while I’m working on going back and forth with my cover designer. All that just to say… I’m busy right now. Sheesh!!
I had forgotten to put my Valentine’s day flowers out with the trash, so I just left them because they were wilting, but still pretty. Then I noticed that several of them were still holding their shape, but drying perfectly. These have been the most interesting flowers Hubby has ever bought me. Yes, they are roses, but they ended up being huge and they opened fully before starting to wilt, which seems to be rare for cut flowers. Now, I have a vase full of dead flowers that still look incredibly pretty.
This is probably the last of the new mum pics for the year as they are currently getting buried in snow. But that means I now get to take snow pics!
These images can be purchased from my Pixels store.
I’m calling them sepia, but there is no filter or adjustments on this. This is what my poor mums look like now that they have been frozen out. They look a little sad unless you get close enough to see they are still very pretty.
It’s cold and I have about an inch of snow on the ground this morning. It’s the kind that is wet and clings to everything so the world seems dusted in sugar. It’s a beautiful backdrop for working on more edits today.
So far, it looks like my mums are handling the cold temps!
