This morning is glorious!

  We are having the warmest day we have so far this Spring, somewhere in the mid 8o's they predict. Even though I had to get up by myself and go on to church (hubbs works on Sunday's now) it was still a beautiful morning. This is the view in front of my Singer 201-2.  My prim place is in the city although I lived in the countryside of Noble County Indiana for 18 years I have been back in the city for the last 12 and I love it.  We moved back just before the second grandbaby was born. I retired from nursing and choose to stay home and  keep the babies while Mom and Dad worked.

 I am lucky to have a fenced in backyard for my two dogs and a half way decent sized front porch with a swing.  I also have a small back porch that I would like to prim up a little better. So far I have painted the porch floor black but would like to stencil it yet.  I plan on putting in a new garden soon and I will always have a big stand of Sweet Annie, I need my Sweet Annie... lol

  I have a lot of plans for things I would like to do to the house but it always takes longer and cost more than expected, I guess its the same for all of us.  I need to plant a few more flowers in the front yard and add a couple of street trees since I don't think the city is ever going to get around to it. Maybe I will put in some Bradford pears on the city side. 

This week I hope to get my windows washed, I plan on making some new curtains if I can ever find the fabric I need. I want a sage green check and I can find lots of green check but not sage... so the hunt goes on. I hope this week stays sunny, I could really use some sunny days. My brain has had enough of dreary rainy days. Maybe a tulip will bloom, who knows. Happy Easter Season to you all and may the "Prim" be with you...
