Putting Along

Climbing Rose Starting to Bloom Here's a picture of the climbing rose that I managed to take during a respite from the deluge of rain that we've been having lately. We've been getting a lot of rain, so much that I think we're close to erasing the rain deficit that had built up over the past year. I just hope this continues into summer, with the minimum assistance of hurricanes.

I've got big plan for the garden - I've got spinach growing to the left of the roses. And I'm planning to try to grow tomatoes upside down. I picked up a couple of pepper plants at the MDSW that have yet to be stuck into the ground. I need to pull out spent plants except for the leeks (which seem to be taking their own sweet time getting big). And of course, I've got to get that corner tilled properly. And I need to try to get the spearmints in control. [Ha! Good luck with that! - Ed. Yup, I know.] I'm planning to drop a god amount of $ this week on plants from The Nursery as it's Employee Appreciation Week and I can save even more money.

Oh, what about my knitting, you ask? Well, I've been rushing around tying up loose end with the old car, so my time was kinda limited for the past two weeks. I do plan to get the Rosemarkie vest blocked later today. And I've started work again on Mr. Greenjeans (need to take picture of that as well). I've been working on it especially when I watch La Femme Nikita on tape. We're just getting into the 4th season now, having finished the 1st volume. Waiting for the next two disks to come. I really love our time sitting in front of the tv downstairs, cuddling on the couch. Hubby makes sure I'm warm and snuggly under the quilt (it's a bit cold in the living room with all those windows and with the weather we've been having lately . . .

I did go to the sheep and wool, but I got there later than expected on Saturday because we were wrapping up purchase of the new Saturn Astra (a very sweet car indeed). I don't have a picture yet, thanks to the H2O falling from the sky. So, I didn't really buy very much - just a lovely wool-silk fiber blend from Spinner's Hill that will be destined for sock yarn, a set of stitch markers to use with Bordhi's sock patterns, an orifice hook from Woodchuck (who retired), a spinning book, two skeins of sock yarn from Crestari - I want to test these yarn to see how it stands up under wear and tear. Oh, and a Romney cross fleece that will be processed by Ohio Valley. I know it will be 4 or 5 months before I get it back, but the wait will be worthwhile.

Hi Lola.. I did get to see you at MDSW, but only briefly.I doubt if you remember me.. I was the one who came up to you at the Booth with all the books. I should have taken our photo together. I guess I was rushed to, I got there later than I wanted to. I had to go back a second day, becuase we missed so much.
