February 13th: One of my new rings...flower power...
February 14th: Assessing the yard which needs a weeding something fierce. These are some anemone bulbs about to come up and you can see violas in the background.
February 15th: An example of me and Jen's texts to each other...we are both huge asparagus fans so I send her things like this when I find the super thin asparagus at Fred Meyer for such a cheap price.
February 16th: Reorganizing my dressing area. Starting from the left I found a amber glass and metal hanger which fits my fancy scarfs, mask and headbands well freeing up tons of space on my dresser. I added some nice hooks beside the mirror for all my necklaces since they were all much too long for my jewelry box which is in the center. Patrick added two floating shelves above the mirror which freed more space also on the dresser which I added my vases to etc. I added my 'M' hook to the right side of the mirror to hang a few more scarves from and hung more necklaces under that. I found a trash can which matched all the new cups and such I got to fit my makeup brudhes and such in. And finally I found a fleur de lis wreath door hook which we cannot use anywhere and just had which works perfect on the bedroom door which I now hang all my shawls from. Patrick was giggling that I made my side of the room all girlie.
Visiting my friend Lilith for some girl time...this is one of her sweet kitties who adores me.
February 17th: Mexican Trains Dominoes crack...on my way to Lilith's the night prior I grabbed this set and was delighted to discover my $22 bought a very nice game indeed.
Late in the evening Jen joined us for dinner. Patrick made this amazing angel food cake based on an Alton Brown recipe which we topped with macerated strawberries and fresh whip cream. We all agreed it was the best angel food cake we have ever had hands down.
February 18th: Patrick's amazing mead has now been bottled for 23 bottles total. He corked it all and added foils. We are now just waiting for the labels.
February 19th: Sushi lunch with Clinton, Annie and Jen.
