Darn Tough

I love wool socks. But, I wear holes in them.

Very quickly.

Lucky for me, Darn Tough stands behind their product.
And they live up to their lifetime guarantee. 
Hooray for a company with integrity!
It's wonderful to buy American.


This is my new pair of socks. 
The socks were sent to me as a replacement 
for the holy hole-y socks I sent to them.


How's that for customer service?!

Thank you, Darn Tough!

April Showers Bring...

Saturday afternoon was just beautiful. I went out to weed, and transplant a few perennials, and was hijacked by a dwarf iris. My only purple iris (at least for now... stay tuned for an iris post later this spring!) was blooming. 

It was lovely. 

I took a few pictures of it, and Mr. Dreamy came out to take a few more pictures. I took pictures of a few tulips and daffodils. 




They were all lovely. 

I decided that I wanted to draw the iris, since that is one of the flowers that we drew in a recent online art class I've been taking. I've drawn iris from pictures, but never "in person". So, I gathered my paper and pencil and plopped myself down on the edge of the garden and began to sketch. Mr. Dreamy came out with my bag of colored pencils. I colored. 

It was a lovely afternoon.


Yup, the weeds will just have to wait!

Not Dreaming

I wish I was dreaming right now. 
I wish the horrendous head cold that I seem to have acquired... 
was only a figment of my imagination.


But no. 
I am stuffed up. 
I am dripping. 
I am hacking. 

My teeth hurt. My eyes ache. I can't breathe.

I am miserable. 
I am anxious to have some energy.

I don't particularly care for air travel:
Being cooped up with strangers....
And germs.

I've flown three times this year.
I have come away with souvenir colds on two of those occasions.

Ugh!

Yuck!

Next time I'm gonna wear a face mask.
I don't care how silly I look.


Better yet....
I'll be the lady in the bubble!



Maybe they'll even give me priority seating.

Nah....

Heck... they wouldn't even give us peanuts!
