A Little Gardening

Well, another step on our front stoop was finally peeking out from under the ice when I got home this evening. That leaves only two more and the walkway which is still under 12-18 inches of ice. At this point it feels like it will be forever before people can reach our front door again. I thought briefly about trying to take a whack at it with the shovel again today, but it is still a solid rock.

Instead, I was a good Leslie and made my way to the basement and put in forty minutes on the recumbent bike while watching last night’s Criminal Minds. I really like that show, but I still have a hard time seeing Mandy Patinkin without either reciting “My name is Inigo Montoya…” from the Princess Bride or humming a bit from Sunday in the Park with George. Neither really fits in with the character he currently plays!

After a quick dinner, it was time for some gardening. While watching some of David Starkey’s The Monarchy, I was able to get some good progress done on my German Garden. I finished the three triangular trees at the top and added some filled trellis stitch and wather. I am almost done with the top right page on this one! Yay!

Now off to see who gets kicked off American Idol.
