May 1. I wanted to post something clever and creative and pretty today. Honestly, I thought and thought all day about it. Even took my camera on my walk with Patrick and still - nothing. I even HAD a busy day today and actually DID things. Just nothing worth repeating I suppose...
One of my neighbors has a beautiful patch of poppies. I SO wanted to take a picture of them but - still being quite painfully shy and introverted - even at the ripe ole middle age of 41... I was scared to. Not sure really what I thought would happen - some crazy man running outside with a broom chasing me away and yelling? "Stay away from my poppies! No pictures allowed! What WERE you thinking? I'M CALLING THE COPS!" Who knows. (And yes I'm fully aware this is all very irrational. I'm shy not crazy.)
My husband has said that I often ask him to do things that I could probably do myself. Probably snapping a picture of the neighbor's poppy patch is one of those things. (Must remember to take him on our next walk...)
They really are beautiful.
I've been quite busy lately with real work and have accomplished very little on my ripple blanket. It calls to me during the day. But I stay focused and keep plugging away on my "real" work. Perhaps one day I will be independently wealthy and be able to crochet all day. Read. Do art. Whatever I please. But for now I must be an adult and responsible partner and work hard.
The only picture I have to share today is a cute one of Patrick sleeping with his Teddy. That is Steve's hand there as well. Yes, we are doting puppy parents.
(And yes, Patrick does have furniture privileges. Life's too short. ♥ )
