Life's Chaos

How is it that you push to the side one of your favourite things to do?  Your hobby crocheting. I have managed adding a few rounds.  I even managed finding the skein of Caron Cakes Buttercream I had been looking for.  I continues on with the Bernat Pop which added a darker punch but going back to the Buttercream should finish it off nicely.  When and if I ever get it finished.  It's a long weekend here in Canada, Victoria Day weekend, so I'm hoping to get some more crafty time in.  

Honey and I got the garden up and going last weekend.  We got cherry tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, chives, rosemary, basil and bell peppers started.  I still want to get some cucumbers.

My favourite season is spring.  Witnessing the new signs of animal life.  I love to scope out the new families of baby geese and ducks while out on my bike rides.  This week we've had some 80+ degree weather.  I usually work a steady afternoon shift but due to a sick leave by a co-worker on days I was asked to cover and got to pick a shift of 10am-6pm of which is perfect for me.  I'm not a super early morning person.  It's let me enjoy some nice evenings at the perfect time of year. 

I've finally been able to take advantage of taking some great pictures with the new phone camera.

Baby ducks.

I'm still occupied by my fitness weight loss goals. I've dropped 25 lbs from the beginning of the year. Mostly by cutting out the bad white starchy carbs and sugars.  It's hard but it's has to be a mental thing and will power.  

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
