Flowers, crochet, and a dab of silliness – this week’s pictures reflect the Bug Household fairly well, I do believe.
Sunday, April 15th
No Sunday selfie this week – just pictures of all of our lovely flowers.

This lunch isn’t much to look at, but the tuna & trail mix melt was pretty darned tasty!
Dr. M decided we didn’t have enough flowers, so he got another basket of petunias. And we’ve already seen a hummingbird enjoying this basket! No picture, but hopefully we’ll be ready the next time.

On to the next square pattern, #7, in my first colorway.

We had planned to put a black bag over this stump to discourage this type of activity, but we can’t help it: we like to see things grow. Even things that we’ll probably prune later.
Thursday, April 19th
Second colorway in this pattern.
We’re all ready for April showers around here.

Dr. M says, “New from Upcycled Awnings of Plateau, our cussed’em made “Curtains for Penguins” glider awning! Guaranteed to leave your neighbors asking ‘what the hell is that?’ Here at Upcycled Awnings of Plateau, WTF, we leave no stone unturned to insure that your out back operations are always shady!” Have I mentioned that my husband is a nut?
But he does take lovely pictures of the moon.

I’m gonna have peony blossoms soon!
It’s the MLB edition of Birds in the Backyard – chipping (Chipper Jones) sparrows and the Boys of Summer (male goldfinches).
I was given a smart plug for Christmas & it took me four months to figure out what I wanted to use it for. I’ve really enjoyed being able to turn the fan on and off without having to get out of bed. It’s going to be the best thing ever this summer. Ha!
As I write this, we are into our second day of pouring rain. And even though the grass didn’t need mowing on Saturday or Sunday, I kind of wish I’d mowed it anyway. Might need to borrower a lawn tractor after the rain stops! But despite all this rain, my eyes have been extra dry. Allergies? Who knows. In any case, when I asked my eye doctor about it he said that I should put a warm compress over my eyes for about five minutes a couple of times a day. Which sounds pretty simple, right? But for some reason I find it hard to read, play games, or crochet with my eyes closed, so I haven’t managed to try it yet. What good-for-you thing are you too trifling to do?
