Spring around here is really just a few weeks in early March, so by the end of April we’re already rocking the summer weather. I’m not really enjoying the 90+ degree weather, but the fruits & veggies I’m trying my hand at seem to be soaking up all the heat & sun. Those tomato plants down there had at least 20+ baby tomatoes budding on them when I checked this morning.

The cats are pretty happy about the time I’ve been spending out back because I usually take them with me. Alonzo is good just on the lead, but Nitro has to wear a little camouflage harness so that he won’t choke himself.

No one would ever call me sentimental, but I am super happy to have been married to the most awesome man for the past 2 years.  Actually, the married part isn’t all that important, it’s just the together part that I like.   Here we are, two years ago today, cutting the butt off of a lime-green bandana’d red velvet armadillo cake:

Despite a lack of evidence, I’ve been fairly productive in the creating department lately.  Mostly, I’ve been trying to finish up a few quilt tops that are partially pieced and have really been enjoying the portability of embroidery. Photographs forthcoming, if I can ever get home before the light fades.

Inspired by this tutorial that made the blog rounds a few years ago, I picked up a set of white lights sometime before Christmas.  Two adults can only eat so many eggs, so it’s been a work-in-progress until my sister-in-law delivered several egg cartons during a visit last month.  It is worth noting that these things are extremely difficult to photograph.  Or maybe it’s operator error.

OMG, I hate this wall color even more in photographs than real life. We inherited it with the house. It was one of the less offensive colors the previous inhabitants used, so we’re living with it for now.

I’m pretty sure we’re not going to be able to put ornaments on the tree this year.
