Look! Look! New flowers!
The shrubs outside the front door are also getting ready to bloom. I have been asked if they bloomed, but I hadn't seen the blooms, or didn't notice them while the construction crew was here last spring. I think the shrubs are too big, but nothing is going to be done about them in the near future. I can only change so much at a time. But I like the way the top of the hedge looks like a see of buds.
I managed to walk up the steep hill toward the end of the street today, for the first time in over a week. There were days I walked around the neighborhood, except for that block, but not the last two days. Luckily most of the way home was downhill. I started uphill again just before I could finish one block and turn back down to my house, and I could feel my hip beginning to rebel, so I cam home. While I rested I've been playing with thread.
Mostly needlepoint, but some knitting too. I finally started the front of the Lazy Days tunic, and I also finally updated the knitting blog with the status of that project. Believe me, not much has been happening around here, and yet everything has been happening. New flowers arrived right before my eyes. The front of the sweater is going more easily than the back, but that is simply because my fingers finally have the feel for what they are doing. And the new peonies out front are poking up their heads, but they aren't very photogenic yet. Most of us eschew photographs immediately upon waking in the morning.
I'd like to add something about last night's symphony performance of Orff's Carmina Burana, but I really can't right now. It was fabulous and I enjoyed it immensely. But it is also getting caught up in all kinds of other random thoughts, thoughts that don't seem to have anything to do with Carmina Burana, but maybe they do. When I find a thread I'll let you know.
