Glass, spring and ice cream

This week's Snappyfriends challenge is glass. While we were in Arizona we stopped at the botanical gardens in Phoenix. Recently there had been an exhibit of Dale Chihuly's glass sculptures and this is one that the gardens is purchasing. It was stunning! It's glass, folks!! And it's huge!

Here is a close up:

It's spring here and it's time to hang the wash on the line. I look forward to this every year. The wind snaps the wrinkles out of the shirts so there's no ironing and everything smells so fresh. This was the first hanging of the year and it was such a warm, windy day that by the time the second load was washed the first was dry on the line. Got a lot done that day!

Springtime also means our favorite dairy opens and that means ice cream. The servings at this place are sinfully huge. You don't even want to know! We took our two granddaughters for ice cream last weekend. It was Adelaide's first taste of ice cream and you can see by her eyes she loved it about as much as I do. If she could have crawled out of that chair, across the table and taken the spoons from our hands she would have. We couldn't get it to her fast enough. Is that a "WOW!" look or what?

  1. Wow I am amazed by those glass sculptures - I was thinking you mistook glass for grass.
