A Sunny Day

7 Mar

Today was beautiful!  Windows were flung open, and the heat was off. 60 degrees and sunny in March just doesn’t happen that often in Dubuque, but apparently it makes me productive. I got laundry, dishes and some sewing done, and Dell and I went for 2 walks. I also had some Meyer lemons that I picked up at Wal-mart and needed to use. So I made some delicious lemonade from this recipe here: The only thing I did different was to add lemon zest to the simple syrup while it was boiling. Homemade lemonade is soooooo good!

Well apparently this winter came in like a lamb and is heading out like a lion considering the snow globe we are in today! Regardless, I got started on my garden already.

It never fails to amaze me how fast seeds sprout! I planted these last night, and they’re already popping up here and there. I get giddy over my garden!


I picked up this polish for St. Pattie’s Day

Revlon “Posh”

Also, I found a clover in my salad mix from the grocery 🙂 Happy March and happy Spring!

Mid Century Chairs

1 Mar

I found these two gems at St. Vinny’s the other day. Just 10 smackeroos for these and a Target shower curtain later, and I’ve got some cool chairs!

They started out with some nasty mauve purpley blue fabric on them. I couldn’t find anything at Joanne’s, so I saw a cute shower curtain at Target, and snatched it up! In all, these guys were about $40.00. not too shabby.
