Azalea blossom Azalea blossom

SOOOO pretty outside today. I finished up a kid show and drove to the Brighton Azalea Garden. Even though I was about a week early in terms of peak blossoms, it was still beautiful. Click on either of the azaleas above to see my little Azalea Garden slide show.

Despite the fact that I am so congested and miserable (I'm back to thinking it's allergies, not sickness) I do like the spring. The colors in this garden were amazing. I am hoping to get back there next week - I think the garden will be at it's peak then.

I finished an Embossed Leaves Sock

I really need to cast on the second one soon - I actually have a little time to concentrate on it. I would like to be able to do a little mindless knitting tonight at the theatre. Sadly, the first few rows of this sock require a little bit of concentration!

And of course, I need to do the second Potomoooose..
and clean my room, and take the dog out, and do some laundry....

Well, it WAS a nice day!

It's still a beautiful day. We went out and ran errands and I sneezed a lot. As bad as it seems to be here, it's not near as bad as back home. Maybe I was just allergic to Georgia. :D

Beautiful sock! Your sock knitting still amazes me!

One always needs something to knit at the theater. Maybe that's why I'm having Jaywalker issues? Too much using it as a voodoo doll/stress ball during tech and gave it a bad vibe!

I hope the allergies go away soon!

Such beautiful flowers, I enjoyed looking at these pics!
And your sock's so gorgeous, I love the pattern, and the colors you chose for it are certainly perfect for spring!
I do hope that you're having a bit of an easier time by now with your allergies, I know they can be a pain in the back - do get better soon, will you?
