A day wherein I didn't do much

This morning our weather was (finally)warm and sunny, so I headed out on the deck first thing with my coffee and a baby blanket I am making for a friend of mine. While makeing great progress I got to see all sorts of things like this

(Simon loves being on the deck)

and this (I didn't manage to catch a picture of the Red-Tails headed into those trees, but that is where they live),

and this (and I am sure you know by now that these all look better when you click on them).

I also had to be careful not to rock onto Sadie. She and Simon were pretty much interchangeable in their positions you see here throughout our session on the deck.
The blanket really spent a lot more time in my lap, growing, than it did on the back of the chair. (Yep, I headed right out in my pajamas and stayed out there for about two hours, stopping only to refill my coffee cup. If Hubband had been home, I am sure he would have done that for me. He is a super nice guy like that.)
I finally tore myself away from all that fun to run a couple of errands. I would have rather stayed home on the deck, but needed to go pay property taxes, get a book at the library, and do some drop off/pick up of packages at the post office. I also stopped in at the grocery store since somehow I was down to only having about two cups of flour in the house. Seriously, how did that happen? That is pretty much all out as far as I am concerned. While I was there, I found this new (at least to me) cool product. It really doesn't have any butter in it, it is just pure maple syrup that has been creamed. Have you ever had molded maple sugar candy (often in the shape of a maple leaf)? Do you remember how the outside is kind of crunchy, but the inside is all smooth and creamy? That smooth and creamy is what this stuff is like. Way yummy! Good thing I have someone coming home tomorrow who likes pancakes; guess I had better get the sourdough out of the fridge to be all ready for Saturday's breakfast.

After getting the groceries put away and a sink of dishes done, my sock finally got to spend some quality time with "The Chair" this evening.

Did you change out of your P.J.'s to pay the property taxes? *snicker* Sorry...sometimes I can't help myself. ;-p

The baby blanket looks beautiful. Wish I could have joined you on the porch. You had much nicer weather than we did!

Thank you so much for the package. I am so sorry I am so late in posting. I am back up and running and have posted pictures of the package on my blog. The package was Wonderful! The piebird is great and will be well cherished. You are very wonderful to send such a full package and I will enjoy all of it! :)

The time spent on your deck and 'the chair' sounds priceless!
