There are lots of pictures this week because I had Decision Making Disorder. The theme for the week is pink. And flowers – since I can’t wander around the yard, Dr. M brings their images to me. No weird sandwiches this time. I probably shouldn’t tell you about the time I ate a bologna & cheese & mayo & banana & peanut butter & jelly sandwich. It was pretty tasty, but messy.

I LOVE all the crepe myrtle trees in my home town! There are so many different colors – I want one of each for my yard. This one in front of the nursing home happened to match what I was wearing, so I had to take a selfie with it.

I had an early morning appointment and wore actual shoes for the second day in a row. Woo hoo!
Heather is still a sheep, and her impatiens are looking lovely.
The monkey grass is blooming!
And the bougainvillea is still going strong.

Roy! Such a good boy.
Dr. M thinks this is a black morph female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. I think it’s lovely!

The only picture of the day – I was fiddling around with the Facebook Messenger app’s camera filters & got this cute picture of Samuel Spaniel, the ancient stuffed dog my brother gave me while I was in college. He’s almost 35 years old now!

Today my nephew came home from his tour of duty as a medic in Afghanistan. So glad to have him back in the states now!
Temperature scarf update (average temp each day, from March 1, 2017 – February 28, 2018). It’s going to be huge (well, we knew that, didn’t we?). I’m 40% done & it’s almost 3 ½ feet long. I like the cool weather colors better than the warm ones – good thing those will be the colors on each end of the scarf.

My lunch on Friday – strawberries, bananas, apples, blueberries, peaches. It was too hot for real food. Well, for full disclosure I must admit that I had a tuna sandwich later as an afternoon “snack.”
Update on the blanket I’m making for a gift. I sewed the four panels together & now I need to do a border. I really don’t like sewing; therefore, I’m not very good at it. I fear this blanket will be rather lumpy. Maybe I’ll end up keeping it after all!

More flowers from the yard – the vinca my dad gave us is thriving. And the ancestral phlox has decided to start blooming again.
Today we’re going to a reception to celebrate Daddy & Sue’s marriage. I have written a wedding toast. It’s a (bad) poem. I know you can’t wait, but I’m not posting it until later in the week. Ha! Anything special happening in your life this week?
