Our temps hit the 80's yesterday...Yay! People and their pets came out of hibernation in droves. I couldn't sit still. While daughter Abby had my car for school, I was out in the backyard, looking at and snapping pictures of spring flowers coming up.
Daffodils have poked through, eager to bloom. Seeing them makes me wish I had planted more last fall. And fall doesn't seem so long ago since we seemed to have just skipped right over winter!
Saturday was beautiful, too, not quite as warm and I dragged The Husband out for a bite to eat at one of our favorite places, Joe Daniel's Pub. Then we settled in with some movies for the evening.
On Sunday, I had to take Abby to a friend's house that lived right smack in the middle of the blocked off St. Patrick's Day Parade route. We had to drive blocks out of our way around the city to get her where she needed to be. And then I went on my last quest for The Perfect Corned Beef! And...I found it! I spent most of the day with that boiling on the stove and I took pictures of all my step so I can share it with you for Kathleen's St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl. I will be putting up her button with a link just as soon as I finish this post so you can join in the fun, too.
When our heat wave hit yesterday, Emily, Abby and I decided we needed a little retail therapy and headed off to TJ Maxx. It was a very productive trip, although I have been saying that I really can't fit another thing in this house! I'll share some of my goodies in another post.
We then had lunch at this new restaurant and it was quite good. We sat outside and enjoyed the warm breeze. I had fish and chips, Emily had a burger and Abby had a chicken wrap. Look at that gorgeous blue sky!
Here's Emily with her margarita...
...and Abby just enjoying the beautiful day. She starts spring break next week and I will have my car back. I am thinking of all the things I want to do and places to go. Freedom!!
That's all I have for today. I'm getting ready to head out to Pier 1 to have a peek at what they have in stock for summer. Yes, I have summer on my mind! :-D
