Pulling weeds

I have been pulling weeds the past couple of days. I wish I had been sewing, but there are certain things that have to be taken care of first.

I am not fond of pulling weeds. I don't mind the dirt under my fingernails. I don't mind the monotony of pulling weeds, in fact, I find it rather zen like. What bothers me about weed pulling is what I must look like to our neighbors. Yeah, that's right, I worry about what the neighbors think when they see me.

In this house we have a saying, "Crack is bad." We are not just talking about the drug! I worry that when I bend over folks see more than they bargained for! So I work hard to position my body so that my arse is not prominent. Crazy, I know.

We are getting a nice bit of sunshine today, so I thought I would take a few more photos of the house.

Here are a few shots of the sun room.

I love this room. My goal is to have it filled with various greenery. I recently made slip covers for the wicker furniture and I am in the process of making accent pillows. I want to slip cover the chairs that sit around the table also.

We are hoping for nice weather tomorrow. It is the 100th anniversary of the gift of the Cherry Blossom Trees in D.C. The trees are supposed to be at their peak today. I will take lots of photos to share.

What are your plans for the weekend? Hope you have a good one!

Pin It Now!

I can see myself sitting in one of those comfy chairs and hand quilting with you while we both get slowly sozzled on a lot of wine.

I dont pull weeds...thats why Roundup was invented. Nuke the little buggers!
