I have sixty-six (!!!) unread blog posts on my blog roll. I have either been too busy or too brain cloudy to do much more than crochet or play a game on my iPad. There is an end in sight (I’ll be back to only working one job soon), but I’m pretty sure the only way I’m going to catch up is to mark everything as read & start fresh at the end of April. Sheesh! And sorry!

Easter Sunday morning selfie.
Dr. M saw a butterfly! The snapdragons seem to be doing well, and my wildflower garden is coming along (at least we hope all those seedlings will be wildflowers – ha!).
Male yellow-bellied sapsucker, and a grackle looking so much prettier than its name implies.

Happy little bluebirds! I think these are my favorite pictures of the week.
Tuesday, April 3rd
It was warm & sunny enough for Dr. M to put an “awning” over the swing. This is the best one yet – curtains that we brought from Ohio & ended up not using. You might recall that we’ve used bed sheets and a pirate flag in the past.

Ms. Rita geranium’s first bloom of the year and a glorious sky.

Dr. M planted some impatients to go with our pansies. He says, “Sunny, standing guard like a GAR statue, facing south, ever watchful lest the Rebels rise again. I tried to explain to her that West Lincoln High School (Home of the Rebels) is several miles south of here, so they rise (or ride the bus) every time they come north to play Fred T. Foard, but she would have none of it. Well, she is from Xenia...obviously an Unconditional Unionist!”

It was snack o’clock – yum!
Dr. M was on a roll with his captions this week. Here’s the one for this picture: “Keeping us safe from the Russians for nearly six decades...they are a bit concerned about Alexa.”

Lunch – turkey & cheese & mayo and peanut butter & jelly. Most excellent!
I’ve been avoiding the next afghan square because it seemed extra worky. I had to learn how to use butterfly bobbins (which are basically tiny little skeins of yarn that you create so you don’t have to manage the big skeins when you’re changing yarn colors). You’ll have to wait until next week to see the end result.
Due to my cloudy brain I have nothing to say here. How about you tell me something?
