I've been in a bit of a funk this weekend, so on the advice of my mother, I took the boys outside for a little sunshine.... and promptly got stung.
Actually - I think it's a bite, not a sting - I can't find a stinger and there was no dead bee hanging around. Whatever it was, it flew right up my skirt and got me on the inside of my thigh, just above my knee. Ow!
While I was nursing my hurt, the boys were munching and exploring.
Rocky wasn't nearly as nervous as he usually is.
The wild violets have carpeted the side of my lawn again.
The maintenance guy mowed them all down earlier this week, but within just a few days, they were blooming again. When I leave this place, I'm going to dig up a bunch for my next garden.
And my lone peony bush is getting ready to bloom.
Last year that corner of the garden got taken over by and evil tree-like weed. I didn't get it out until later in the summer, so the peony didn't get a chance to bloom. It has two heads on it right now. Hopefully there will be more.
This weekend would have been a good day to tackle the annual hack and slash on the wild roses, but I just didn't have the energy.
Instead, I mostly watched movies and knit.
I'm using Alley Cat Falkland (colour is Armada) and I love it. I think it's my new favourite sock yarn. It's got a really nice squish to it.
I also started a lace-weight project (one of my stash-down goals)
So, how was your weekend?
