Easy Going Sunday
Lovely afternoon.. just spent some time in our backyard with husband. Roses are blooming and beautiful, lupine is purple and prolific. :) The lilacs, tulips and daffodils passed by weeks ago. Spring comes early to the Pacific Northwest. The days have been warm and full of sunshine, though the weather people are predicting overcast and showers for the next couple of days. We have the air conditioning on. Friday was the first day of the spring/summer for that. In my mind, i'm making little plans for tomorrow. It might be a good day for a spot of baking. Cookies? Bread? A cake? Chocolate chip? Oatmeal? Banana? Maybe something not dessert-ish, but then again, why not? The days are getting longer, i'm spending more time walking and all around outdoors, so i'm getting more exercise. Cutting back on calories, but still splurging now and then. I think a cake. I love to bake. I like to cook too, but there's something special about baking. Mixing ingredients together. It's meditative.. I love to sift flour. Sounds odd, doesn't it? Then i look at the finished product and think, hey! I made that. It's sort of like when i do a sketch that i like. I like to do things with my hands..
Anyway, we are getting ready to watch something on Netflix. I'm thinking maybe a mystery, but nothing too dark. But then, we've been watching episodes of Rebus on Acorn. Those can be quite dark, but they are excellent. Based on Scots author Ian Rankin's novels. Love 'em! The show is good, but the books are better. And there's not a new Rankin coming out until November. I'm not very good at waiting, but that's just too darned bad. lol.
So enough rambling for now.. I just want to add a couple of photos of some of our roses. We have quite a few varieties of all colors. Some have scent; some don't. Can't decide which ones are my favorites. I think today, i choose the yellows. Maybe tomorrow i'll like the pinks better? :)
Aren't they stunning? When tulips show up in the springtime, they are my absolute favorite. But then! Then the roses make their grand, gorgeous entrance! And i just can't get enough of them. I have numerous photos, but i don't want to overwhelm anyone, so i'll add maybe a couple to each post!
I wish you all peace and a lovely Sunday evening! I'll be back soon...
