Spring flowers are back . . .

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. We did brunch at a local restaurant, and I ate and drank way too much. On a lighter note, my brother's girlfriend's 7 year old son did manage to vomit between the salads and the entrees!

Upon returning home, I hung out with Sam, worked on my Noro Striped Scarf, and watched the Masters and Angels baseball. You'll note Sam's new collar and matching leash.

Have you seen the Obamas' new dog, Bo? The wingnuts are complaining that he is too "girlie" of a dog. I'm not sure a canine companion for the Obamas 7 and 10 year old daughters can actually be too "girlie", but if the GOP wants to play "quienes mas macho" over White House pets, I'll put Bo and Buddy (Clinton's chocolate Labrador), up against Barney (W's Scottie), and Millie (George Sr.'s springer spaniel).

In another case of they just can't win, Dow Chemical and other chemical companies are complaining that Michelle Obama is giving people the wrong idea about chemicals by striving to keep her new White House garden organic.

Dear Dow -

You do realize that this is a home vegetable and herb garden and not 1000 acres of corn? And that it will be tended by the family and by local school children? Ok, just checking.

Thanks, Diane

p.s. lady bugs are a wonderful, natural way to control aphids.

This week promises to be busy, in part because I was working at half speed last week. Did manage a couple of decent walks with Sam this weekend, and I'm feeling pretty good today. Hope your week is shaping up to be a good one!

Bo is too cute! (Although I had secretly hoped for a Bichon as the first pup.)
