Well, there’s just not much Thimble in Thimbleanna these days. It’s so, so sad. It’s always hard in the spring and fall anyway, because of the extra yard work. Add a graduation, two kid moves this month, and the every-other-year mulching and it’s just hopeless.
The big truck rolled in this morning and dumped the mulch in the driveway. See all that smoke? That wasn’t dust — the mulch was steaming HOT. (??? Did they cook it before they arrived?) Mr. DumpTruckMan managed to dump some of the mulch right on top of a few of my coneflowers so I was scurrying to rescue them before they were fried.
Can you see the pretty green of the trees peeking into the picture? After a cool, wet spring, our spring colors are brilliant and gorgeous this year. Aren’t the green and chocolate brown pretty together? I’d love a quilt or some socks out of those colors. And throw in some robin’s egg blue — yum, yum!
Well, now you know how I’ll be spending my weekend. I’m hoping we’ll be done by Sunday night so I can at least have a free (ha!) day on Monday before returning to work on Tuesday. Wish us luck!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. Talking about those pretty chocolate and green colors reminded me that I forgot to show you the cool sock yarn that I picked up at Cami’s when we went to TheSecondChild’s graduation a few weeks ago. They are Lorna’s Laces custom colors. I vowed I’d stop buying Lorna’s Laces because of the problems I’ve had with pooling, but I couldn’t help myself with these pretty yarns (this picture doesn’t do them justice.) When I left the store, Cami had lots more of this yarn and I’m sure she’d be happy to ship to you, so if you’re feeling the need for some pretty chocolate + pink or blue, ring her up! (Hey, she’s not paying me to say this — I just don’t know where else you can get this yarn. ;-) )
