Had a nice time in Baton Rouge. Max was better when I got there and had no obvious symptoms of anything, but was lethargic and running fever. No fever at all on Wednesday and pretty much back to his normal energetic self. I think it may have been allergies (since everyone else in our family is suffering from them). At any rate, I had a nice visit with Erin and the kids.
Have been trying to catch up on stuff around here and thankfully mowed the yard yesterday because today looks as if the bottom could drop out any minute. Love the effect of the garden on a cool, overcast morning.
See the blurry part in the foreground of the above picture? Hundreds of tiny pink rosebuds just waiting to thrill my heart.
And, of course, my fascination with the garlic never goes away. I liked this picture of the almost finished clematis flower and buds.
One of my very favorite "weeds" - Queen Anne's Lace is nearing performance time.
Finished a book that I thoroughly enjoyed: The Girl with No Shadow by Joanne Harris. It is a sequel to Chocolat, and I like it much better. I read Chocolat nearly 10 years ago and in one of those unusual situations, I liked the movie better than the book.
I put aside all the other books when I opened The Girl with No Shadow; there was simply no room for anything else while I indulged in the lives of Vianne and Anouk. Started and finished it yesterday in between visiting Laddie, mowing the yard, running errands, and exercising.
Did a little hand quilting last night while watching the first new Moonlight in a while. Now that the strike is over, I'm pleased to be able to watch new episodes of shows like Lost and Ugly Betty again.
