I don't have much for you today, just a bit of this and that. I have been busy as usual with work and life. I know you are all busy, too.
A few weeks ago I took a skirt I have had for years and did some damage control. It was bright green, bright blue and yellow. It was a bit garish, I think I only wore it once or twice. With nothing to lose I let it soak in beach for hours. After rinsing it all out I bought some dark blue dye at the grocery store and plopped the skirt in. Many, Many and I mean many rinsings later, and a good soak in vinegar I have this lovely skirt to wear. I am pretty happy.
The darker colors are the colors that did not bleach out. I sort of like the gray/brown color it ended up. I am actually wearing it right now, comfortable and mush less flashy. I am pretty subdued by nature, so this skirt is perfect for me now.
Today has been about catching up at home. I worked 13 hours yesterday, I have to catch my breath today. So cupcakes have been made and are cooling so I can frost them with agave sweetened icing a little later this afternoon.
Blueberry muffins are cooling. Mr. 20 year old loves them so I thought I would make another batch before he leaves.
Taco soup is in the crock pot which will make an easy dinner later in the day.
My new sweater has been cast on. Do you remember the Berroco yarn I bought to make Berroco's pattern Nijo? I am loving the color and the texture of the yarn. The Pattern is pretty easy, but a bit fiddly on rows 1 and 3. The yarn while lovely is a tad splitty, so I am having to go at a slower pace. But I am thrilled to be working on something new, nothing beats a new yarny project.
My gardenia's are in full bloom. They are gracing my table as we speak. I love their gorgeous, soft white petals. And oh my if you could smell them you would swoon.
I have several bushes that bloom a few days apart which leaves me with beautiful flowers for a few weeks. They always bloom before Mother's Day, sort of like my own special present from the Earth.
I wish I could send each and everyone of you a flower. I think you deserve one don't you? Wishing you a wonderful day my friends.
