Friday Fumblings, Vol. 2 - Montage-Worthy Tumbling

Happy Friday!  I can't believe it's already been a week since my first Fumblings.   I must remind myself that I created Friday Fumblings as an exercise in letting go, so I'll just get to it.

Well, spring in Denver has pretty much looked like this:

And this:

 And yep, this: (watch out, Cherry Creek looks like the end of the world is near!)

Which ultimately leads to our loyal, yet anxiety-ridden, Tucker to do this in the yard:
 Oh yeah, and this (you can't quite tell, but he heads over to dig up the area with the bushes as well! ARG!)
Oh, and if you aren't aware of what this adorable dog can do in terms of destruction...(no, not ME...he he)
Picture couches shredded to pieces, back doors scratched into splinters, and pools of nervously flung drool all over our wooden floors and carpets.  Ewwwww, Tucker.  Ew.  You'd think that since we've had him for almost four years now, he'd calm down.  Quite the contrary.  

The windy and rainy weather has, of course, summoned our lovely tulips and daffodils, which have brought us much joy amidst our doggy drama.  I didn't take a pic of them in full bloom this year, but here they are, somewhat withering away:
And that means it's yard clean-up time, and eh, well, time to get rid of the weeds as well:
And to transform our now barren back yard "gardening center" into a lively work center for the summer:
But first, both Mark and I have a lot of work to do (here's a little bit of school work I intend on wrapping up this weekend.  The rest of the table will be filled with Mark's work -- perfecting a presentation for an upcoming airport next week):
The working weekend will require lots of this (for me, anyway.  And yep, I did crochet the coffee sweater, which admittedly, I've used as a gin and tonic cozy as well):
See, told ya:
  And hopefully I can reward myself this weekend with some quality time with Jess:
Which makes me really:
Happy and content.

Thanks for reading, as always!  Hope you tumble into some fabulous weekend experiences.
