Blu's Very Boring Spring Update

Ok - so tomorrow's April Fool's Day . . . and if anybody's a fool, tis me!! I have decided to adopt a pet – Am looking for a beta – one of those frilly, blue fighting fish. It would look lovely on my living room fireplace mantle! Altho the fish is still only an idea, it already has a name – Fin. May have to take a trip to the little fish store and see what we can find. Perhaps there will be a picture of the new arrival here soon!

In other news, have actually held this job 11 days now – and counting! Hopefully they seem to like me, and things seem to be going well. I am keeping my fingers crossed. Next big hurdle is the three-week mark. Once past that, I’ll breathe a sigh of relief!

Have been knitting in the evenings and trying to keep ahead of the housework and errands I used to have all day to do.

Not much else to report – spring has finally arrived – periodically – and the azaleas are getting ready to do their thing, the magnolias are coming out around the neighborhood, and the moss that covers the mud in my backyard is a lovely shade of chartreuse/green. Guess that means it is really healthy, although I’d rather have grass! My daffodils have put on quite a show this spring, the irises are getting ready, the bleeding heart survived the winter and is growing again, the forsythia is blooming - even though it spent most of last summer with a huge tree limb on top of it – and there’s little green leaves coming out again on many things. May be time to build that fence to keep the bunnies and squirrels out of the garden this year so I can finally have some spinach and those purple beans they’ve devoured the last two years in a row! We will see. The backyard animal wars continue!

Hope you enjoy the spring!
