Papa took the Princess fishing over the weekend.  It was her first time to go.  Apparently she is a natural born fisherman.  She caught eight fish.  I bet she will want to go fishing all the time, now!

Just when you think Spring has sprung, it gets cold again.  And I have all these rose bushes and wisteria vines to plant.  I'm a little leery of doing that but I need to get them in the ground.  Hopefully they will be ok until the weekend.  I guess I could go get potting soil and stick them in pots until I can get them in the ground.
Bad timing, Mother Nature!

I have been working on the sewing projects for our church fundraiser.  I'd like to say I almost have everything finished but to do so would be a lie.  Truth is, I have barely started!  I have gotten so frustrated with the pattern for the bibs.  I am now looking for a new one.  One without so many curves!  The finished product looks very unprofessional and doesn't lay flat, even with the trimming and snipping of the curves.  I used a different pattern before but I've since lost it.  I need to find it or one like it, very soon!

What has been completed on my sewing list, are a couple of pillowcase dresses for the Princess.  Yeah, I know that's not what I am supposed to be working on, but she's so darn cute and I want to make stuff for her all the time.  I will post a picture, another time.

I am so glad my favorite reality show is back on!  Love "Dancing With The Stars" and this season, Wynonna Judd and Dorothy Hamil are representing the "mature ladies", of which I am a badge-wearing member!  Ha!  Go Wy and Dorothy!  Show 'em what we can do!  *giggles*

It seems we are in a "waiting" pattern around our place.  The days leading up to Spring are always the longest, it seems and most unpredictable.  One day we have highs in the 30's, the next we are nearing 70*.  We never know what will happen one minute from another.  One thing is for sure,  weather in Oklahoma can change in the blink of an eye and never send a clue.  Keeps life interesting, I suppose, but I am not a patient person so all this waiting gets on my nerves, but what is a gal to do...  Grab her camera and head outside, that's what.

The fire pit sits in wait for the first wienie roast of the year

Buds waiting to bloom

Lilacs waiting...

Porch swing waiting for late night star gazing and conversation

Tire swing waiting for a certain little Princess to come out to play

Looks like we have a lot that's worth waiting on.
