Signs of Life

Quick! Look outside. Do you see that crazy woman out there taking pictures of an empty flower bed? Yep, that's me.

Actually, look what I discovered yesterday. We've had a couple of weeks of very spring-like temperatures and the earth is starting to respond. It will be slow, probably a good month before I can take pictures without using the close up. These are the beginnings of some much hated day-lilies that were planted by the previous owners. I'll tell you about why I hate them another time. However, green is green and I celebrate whatever I can get at this point.

I can't even tell you what these are, but they are green. I don't know half of what's in my flower beds. I've accidently weeded out more than a few things, so eventually I will just need to start over from scratch. Yet another thing for the list of what I will do when I have more time and money.

This little guy I recognize. I just love ladybugs. So does Lizzie. She used to spend hours collecting them in jars when she was little. For such a girly-girl, she loved to play in the dirt.

Lizzie's birthday party is this Sunday. She's so excited. I skipped class this morning so I'd have extra time to prepare the house for the party. So far all I've done is visit my bloggy friends, drink coffee, and eat a bagel. I think it's time to get to work.

Have a great weekend, my lovelies. I'll post pictures of the party next week.

Update: I'm sitting at my computer on a Friday night, working on yet another term paper. I have quite the life, I know. I just found out that I passed my Ethics course, the course I have hated more than any other one I've ever done. It made me cry a few times and caused me more than a little amount of grief, but I did it...and I'm just so happy I could cry some more, but I won't. I'll go to bed instead. Good night.
