I THINK SPRING HAS FINALLY ARRIVED

This is the apple tree in my front yard. On Monday there was just little buds all over but yesterday when I got home from work all the flowers had bloomed. This tree was one of the reasons my hubbie decided to buy this house. It really is stunning when it blooms.
Pretty, pretty little pink flowers.
Hope everyone is doing well. My foot is very slow but at least I think it is finally starting to mend. I had another surgery last Friday because it had become infected and the antibiotic wasn't really doing anything for it, but once he opened it, all the pressure was relieved.
Hope all of you working gals had a good Professional Administration week. One of my bosses took us out to lunch and then my other boss bought me a $75.00 gift certificate to Joanne's. I guess I need to be on the lookout for a coupon and stock up on blades and needles.
Haven't been sewing very much at all. Am hoping to get back to that shortly. I have 2 blocks left to make on my Web Sampler quilt and then I can start putting it together. I ordered my border fabric on Monday so hopefully it might be here by the weekend.
Well will check in later,
Hugs, Cindy

So glad you were taken care of at work this week. I made sure to do some special things for my office manager. Spring is still hiding out here in the Pacific Northwest but at least it seems the snow has finally stopped.

That tree is really pretty! I remember seeing them in Boston in the springtime and wondering what kind they were. Now I know!
