If you’d like to enter my Giveaway, see the post below this. The contest ends at 6 PM Tuesday and the winner will be announced later in the evening.
I want Spring back, please. Today it went up to 92 here in Cecil County and the entire weekend was quite warm as well. But today was a scorcher here. When I came home, I’d noticed my husband had put fans in strategic locations and had covered the kitchen windows with some interesting choices in fabrics. I found a nice linen tablecloth from Williams Sonoma in a lovely sage green hanging over one window and a textured bed linen in ochre over the other. The room was cool, and I told my husband it was tres chic, because I’m in a French mood today.
It really wasn’t tres chic, but if he wants to hang tablecloths and bedspreads on a couple of the windows, then who’s it hurting? It’s not like we’re having guests and entertaining all the time. And besides, I really didn’t want to hurt his feelings.
We don’t plan on turning on the AC in this house too often because it’s too huge a space to cool all summer. So we’re looking for small ways to cut back on the heat entering. The walls are probably 3-feet thick on the outside and that will help a great deal. But we may get a small window unit just for the bedroom. There’s no use suffering.
I still took George for his walk after school. Here’s a view of the backyard where my husband has a small garden. His lettuce is awesome and it’s coming in really well.
I found this leaf sprout from a downed tree at the edge of the property. I took this with my regular 18-55 Nikon DX lens and set it to the macro setting.
My husband took this photo of one of the azalea bushes out front. It’s beautiful here in the Spring!
Remember, the Giveaway ends at 6 PM Tuesday. Until then, my friends . . .
