I will be back when Spring is over!

Not really (the title) but my yard has taken control of most of my free time.

Part of the issue is that my sprinkler system isn't turned on yet. My sprinkler guy was supposed to turn it on April 18th - but the next day I knew I had to work from 11:30 PM till who knows when and when the sprinkler guy was late - I cancelled the appt since I had to get a good night's sleep on Friday (I go to bed at 7:30PM - I know I'm weird). Anyway - my yard is humongous. So I am going out every 15 mins to move the manual sprinkler.. and it needs to be moved about 8 places. He will be here again this Wed - so hopefully next weekend will be easier.

I wish I was one of those people who liked to knit in short spurts but I'm not. If I don't have a big block of time to knit - I don't knit. I would rather surf the internet.

Plus I have started doing the annual yard work. Need to pull out a bunch of dead bushes (also a bunch of roses) - fill the holes the dogs dug, reseed my yard where I killed the wild strawberry, try (again) to plant on my terrace, pull out a bunch of grass and unwanted stuff on my hill, plant some annuals, mulch, etc. etc.

Luckily I am off work the week of May 5th so maybe this is all possible. Maybe not. I also want to put up some wallpaper border I ordered for my master bathroom.

I did finish my Mr Greenjeans last week but Its not really showable until I block it. And I plan to finish my second Opal crazy sock before I start the Antique Lace (one thing I realized that the Lady Godiva color I'm using is Stone and not Glacier - my bad - I have Glacier but its not going to be used for Antique Lace). I'm close but its not going to happen today with the yard work. I'm beginning to wish I lived in a condo!
