Spring has sprung here in the desert. The sky is blue, the birds are singing and the weeds are popping up everywhere. Ugh. I spent a considerable amount of time pulling up those buggers yesterday and it doesn’t even look like I did anything. What a pain in the back.
Here are some of my favorite things right now:
Having a 50+ year old house has some benefits and some drawbacks. In my mind one of the biggest drawbacks is a carport. Why couldn’t I have been blessed with a garage? Our kitchen window looks out past the car in the carport and straight into the neighbors kitchen window across the street. Oh look, the neighbors are washing the dishes.. you get the idea. I guess we could put up a curtain, but putting up this slat screen like they did at The Brick House would look so much cooler. I like the idea of partially enclosing the carport and still being able to see out a little.
When outside, caring for your garden and such, this hose from Alice Supply Co. would make you look stylish. It also comes in neon green with stripes. Of course they have matching tools too. Heaven forbid you get caught gardening with ugly tools.
I love this little guy from West Elm (I couldn’t find him on their website, but there were a ton in the store). I picked him up today, since we were “in the neighborhood.” I can’t resist ceramic woodland creatures. I named him Ollie, and I think he will get along well with The Fox.
If it’s not 79° and the ground is too frozen for weeds to pop up in your neck of the woods, then I feel for you. Trust me, come July when it’s 120° here, I won’t be so chipper. Until then, let’s drink some lemonade. Vodka Rosemary Lemonade Fizz that is.
Looks like it tastes springy!
