This looks like my front yard a couple of years ago. Doesn’t seem like much chance of that this year but you never know. Mother Nature has been known to play dirty tricks on Oklahoma, like sending a late April snow/ice storm. Someone around here must have fooled her big time. (Not sure if the youngsters will get that reference.)
I just had a sort of odd thought about Valentines Day: aside from all the “romantic” stuff, Valentines Day is the last food holiday for three months (that is, unless you count St. Patrick’s Day and all the green beer some people consume) and so it might be worth celebrating for that reason alone. Actually, I’m really, seriously (I really mean this) hoping I do not get candy this year (even though I love the stuff) because I’m planning on making something that’s “bad for us” for this silly little holiday. Some years in the past I have lamented the long stretch without any real holidays but this year I’m going to try to think of it as an opportunity. But one can always find excuses to eat too much so we’ll see how that goes.
I want to be doing more sewing. I have a blouse that I meant to finish last week. I got it all done except for the buttons and button holes. I have a bad habit of getting that far then deciding to “take a break and do it tomorrow” and then not getting back to it for several days. In this case it was the weekend so I really didn’t get the chance to do it so today I am going to finish it and probably start the next thing. I have other things I need to take pictures of so I can show them off. Maybe sometime this week.
