Three whole days off -- and what to do?
I started it off by having dinner with my friends Mark and Jan, as Rick was away till Saturday.
While we enjoyed outdoor dining, one of my favorite moments was seeing all the nature popping out in their yard.
My favorites? The irises, which remind me of my dear Aunt Iris, mom's oldest sister.

The Gyp had fun salivating over the guest at Gypsy Rose's Birdbath Bar and Grill.
He also has a second neighbor to taunt him when Jasper takes a break! (He looks a bit like a bully to me!)
And of course there was time for reading (look for a new Chopsticks and String post in a couple of days!) and projects. I finished this purse, and another is done, save for the felting.

And this recipe tag book is a gift for a friend. I did a tutorial on this long ago, which you can see here.
