I haven't felt much like crocheting or knitting, lately...  I don't know why. But I did make a card. I signed up for the Pen Pal Match-Up on Ravelry, in the Love of Letters group.  This is the card I made my new pen pal.

We went fishing after dinner last night. Eon was the only one who caught anything! Lol  This was the first fish he caught, a baby bass.

And this was a Bluegill he caught. The bluegill was a pretty good size. But we didn't keep either one.

Then today we went for a little road trip. This is Center Hill Dam.

This was from another little road trip my husband and I went on, Friday after I got home from work. He was off work all week. (No work.) So we went on a date, to Muddy Pond. It's not all that exciting. But... something to do. I shouldn't have wasted money on the new quilting book(let).  I don't know why I did..  Especially when all of my fabric is still in storage, in Nevada. Oh well..  :P
This picture actually should have gone with the fishing pictures. This is the lake we fished at. And the sunset was 80% more beautiful in real life. The sky (and the reflection of it on the lake) was pink and purple.. It was so beautiful.

Easter dinner. :)  My  husband bought me some "Easter flowers". They aren't doing well now. I should plant them in the ground outside somewhere. I don't know if that would help.  Anyway, I made ham, green beans, dinner rolls. And hash brown casserole, for dinner. Nothing fancy. I didn't make anything for dessert, either.  The hash brown casserole was yummy. I used this Cracker Barrel Copycat Hashbrown Casserole recipe

Another Pair of Booties

I finished these last night. This morning I took a quick picture (not the greatest, sorry) on my way out the door; because I was going to see if my boss wanted to buy them. She had asked me a while ago, how much I would charge for a pair. I told her $10. (If you buy a skein of yarn to make a pair, it cost $5. Incidentally, I didn't buy the yarn for these, it was given to me a long time ago.)  She bought them. I was so relieved. We really need the money this week. I posted it on facebook and instagram and hastagged #madmoney. But it's really more like #gasormilkandcoffeetiltheendoftheweek/paydaymoney.  O.o  It's kind of funny, because my boss said the girl (who she bought them for) is having her baby shower this weekend. So I finished them at the perfect time.    I also brought in some cookies this morning. I made some chocolate crinkles last night. I didn't take a picture of them, but here's the recipe I used.  (My boss LOVES cookies. She was so excited, she couldnt even talk at first. It was so cute..)    It's the little things... :P

Spring Flowers

I have been picking the daffodils in our backyard. I can see them from the kitchen window when I'm washing dishes. One day I said "I'm just going to pick them." :D  These actually lasted a long time. And they smelled really nice, too.

After I picked the yellow ones, these started to bloom. I picked these today. They don't smell very good. (Lol)

This is a picture I took today of our tree right by our driveway. I kept seeing these little purple buds on trees while I am driving. Then today I pulled in the driveway when I got home from work and my mouth fell open-- "We have one of those trees."  :P

Some trees downtown by the library. I kept driving by them and finally I took a picture (I was at a stoplight.)  They are all over town. (This is why my allergies are so bad...)  But they are so beautiful. After living in the ugly desert for six years, I am loving all the flowers and trees.. :D

I finished these for a girl at work who had a baby boy. I didn't know if she was having a boy or a girl (and neither did my boss). So I made them in neutral colors a boy or a girl could wear.  I brought them in this Monday. I finished them just in time, because she had her baby over the weekend! 

And this is a pair I started for another girl who is due this month. My boss said she thinks she is having a girl. Not a very good picture. But I am using very old yarn an old friend gave me when we lived in Colorado. It's Red Heart Baby Wintuk. Fingering weight yarn.  I'm pretty sure this is a discontinued yarn. But I haven't googled it yet. :P  Have a great weekend..
