Monica: Finally today it hit the 80’s. It was humid but I’ll take the sunshine. During lunch my knitting group walked over to a doughnut shop and got some ice cream sandwiches made with doughnuts.
Hazelnut ice cream in between a powdered sugar doughnut. I did not have one but I heard it was excellent.
Instead I had one of those smaller chocolate glazed doughnuts filled with espresso cream. It was yummy of course.
We were very efficient in scarfing down the doughnuts and had plenty of time to sit outside and knit. We also got to see some bridges go up.
So some ships could get to the lake.
It was nice to spend some time outside. Hopefully we’ll be able to do it more often this summer.
Monica: I would like to pretend that it was a dream. Mother Nature has been very tough on us this spring. We have been able to take Zoey out a few times when the weather has been tolerable. I’ve been able to take some pictures of Spring. It’s coming soon I hope.
We have these beautiful lilacs that bloom around Mother’s Day which is mid-May. Charlie used to drive to his high school and pick a big bunch to give to his mother because those were her favorite flowers. They have a very intoxicating fragrance.
They also come in white.
Before it snowed and rained and was really windy we had beautiful magnolia trees.
and crabapple trees. Now the ground is littered with petals that blew off the trees and are stuck because of the rain.
These mushrooms were growing on the trunk of a big tree. Maybe as a result of all of the rain we’ve had.
I hope we are done with snow for a while!
