An Unexpected Day

Yesterday school was closed because of the dust storm.  I didn't quite understand why since yesterday's weather was so much better than the day before, but why ask why.  I got a lot done at home.
It's been awhile since I've had any visitors to my balcony so I was happy to see these two doves stop by.
I walked around the block to see what was blooming.
And even made a trip to the yarn store.
Today blue skies were back and it was a beautiful day!

Wishing you all a great week!

Hi Tammy, lots of cleaning to do after the dust storm. It got a little better here this afternoon. Hopefully we'll have a clear and calm weather tomorrow.

Tammy you are so right to not ask why. Just enjoying your day is perfect. Love the doves and the flowers and your new yarns. You will make lots of wonderful pieces with all of these colors. Dust Dust go away...

Hi Tammy, the colors of the wool will come out there that look beautiful projects! Your two visitors are an item that when I visit; thanks to observe them closely, now I'm like you. With several pending projects, baking, cleaning, changing beds and more! Cheers for that beautiful side of the world, Rose M.

Hi Tammy,
Glad to hear your blue skies are back. A dust storm doesn't sound too pleasant, but the unexpected day off might have made up for it :). The flowers are looking pretty in your part of the world and it is always a joy to see doves come to visit.

How lucky to have a free day and one that involves a yarn store is even better! Lovely yarn.

I am trying really hard to use up some of my stash...and most of it is wool or a mix, so it's getting a bit harder now that it's wrmed up so much!! My next stash will consist of more cotton...yours looks fabulous...so glad you are keeping the crafting up even though you get busy with the other stuff!!! Our doves are back and making plans to nest...she hasn't chosen the right bush yet!!!

Well, here it was drop dead GORGEOUS today. I'm beginning to worry if it's going to snow in July since warm weather has taken over the winter. ha ha ha

Take care and have a nice night! Susan

Your yarn looks great, what are you going to make.

I can't imagine what that dust storm must be like. Do you all literallty stay indoors or do you go about your business but wear masks? Am so glad your blue skies are back. Have a good day.

Sherry said...

We woke up to snow yesterday and today I can see a little blue poking out through the clouds. I love the colors of your yarn, they are just yummy. I am off today because I will be working Saturday, I have spent the time doing a little decorating, it has been fun.

Rostrose said...

Dearest Tammy, it's so fine that you could use the day as a gift!
Wish you the storms will STOP now (NOW!)
Warm (stormless ;o)) hugs to you,
Traude

Love to have days off to just enjoy! Looks like you had a great one...

Pam said...

So glad you enjoyed your day off. This weather is so strange. We are experiencing extremely cool weather for this time of year. I can see snow on the mountains around Phoenix. Rain and hail yesterday here at our house. Our first rain in 90 days. Snow on the ground a few miles away at a friend's house. Back to the 80's by Thursday!!!

Hi Tammy,

Always nice to have an extra day at home to do the things you love to do.
The colours of the yarn are so beautiful and I look forward to seeing what you make with it.

Happy week
Hugs

it looks very dusty in the dove photo - but I'm glad the blue skies are back - kind of nice to have school called like that :)

Elaine said...

Hello Tammy... James and Andrea had a snow day in Gallup NM today and here we are having sunny 75 degree weather..

A Cottage Muse said...

How fun to have an unexpected day off!

Sam I Am...... said...

Yep...enjoy your day off and I love your doves! We have gray ones here that I always loved as a kid because of their "cooing". I can remember listening to them and they were called Morning Doves or so I thought. I think I was mistaken and they were really called Mourning Doves. Either way I love them.
Oh...and the yarn...I have been wrestling with an order of just that! I need cotton yarn in all different colors but it's going to cost me! LOL!

Duststorm sounds very exotic to me. :)
Now I need to get something done here at home as well. I am sooo lazy nowadays. Just waiting for the spring! :)
