Not much to show this week I'm afraid. I've only crocheted up a few beanies during the evenings this week. But I have been working in the yard. You see, I live in the desert and we have gotten almost 6" of rain at my house this year so far. The plan was to redo the yard, put in some desert landscaping in the front, keep the grass in the back...last year we got the two hills in, put in some new trees (after taking out 15) and plants, got the sprinkler system updated and...well, we ran out of money and energy to get the weed barrior and rock in place...then it rained....and rained....and rained some more...UGH...I live in the desert for crying out loud. The weeds have taken over. I've pulled, mowed, weed-eated and sprayed but they are thriving in my yard anyway...mustard and foxtail to be exact. Then there is this other weed that has a geranium like leaf...never had it until a few years ago. Sooo....I've been in the yard pulling weeds out by their ground hugging roots most everday this week. I've filled countless bags of them. The foxtail down the edge of driveway are gone...for now, and the first hill in the front yard is now weed free. Still one more hill to go. I love my yard but at this point I ask myself why does it have to be so big. Last night, every muscle in my body hurt...especially the backs of my legs and back from bending over and pulling those darn things.

It's Show & Tell Friday and I want to tellyou about a fun, family oriented event happening just a short hour's frive from Las Vegas. Come out to the Casa Blanca in Mesquite on Saturday for the Springtime Bazaar. There will lots of crafters, vendors, kids entertainment and more. I'll be there with some great items for Mother's Day. I hope to see you there supporting the little guy...um...gal. It's going to be a great event.
