Searching For a Project

Okay - I've got some Vanna's Choice Baby Yarn (feels like worsted weight, nothing at all like a baby yarn). It's that Goldfish color I mentioned the other day. I'm very anxious to use the yarn, but haven't been able to find just the right project for it.

I've been waiting for my daffodils out front to bloom, but they aren't doing anything at all. I used to have tulips too, but the squirrels developed a taste for those. I would walk along the sidewalk to see freshly dug holes - little ones that I know I didn't make! And I'd catch a glimpse of a fat little squirrely butt high-tailing it behind the house! I only have a few daffodils now, and the leaves are poking above ground about 6 inches or so, but no flowers. Maybe my daffodils need to be removed and replanted? My neighbor's daffodils are fully bloomed and look beautiful. It finally dawned on me today why I have no flowers. Last fall, my DH and DS "cleaned up" my flower bed by digging it up! The only survivors of the carnage are 3 or 4 bulbs that don't want to bloom. The rest must have been cut to pieces. I guess I'll be replanting, alright. Buying new and replanting! Men! It's that pesky "Y" chromosome, I'm telling you. So named because you wonder "Y" they do the things they do!

Dinner was homemade macaroni and cheese, with stewed tomatoes in the mix. Very good!

  1. Daffodils sound sooooo nice. I grew up in Washington State...LOTS of daffies. None here in Almost Mexico :(

    Daffy yellow yarn sounds wonderful!
