Right now I am...

Wondering if I should nip that little bud off my coleus plant like I do with basil. Does anyone know?
 
Packaging up a Mother's Day gift to be mailed to my sweet Grandma today, and
 
Looking forward to spending Mother's Day with my own sweet girl this Sunday.
 
Working on decorations for next week's party to celebrate my nephew's college graduation;
 
Making lists for said party; and
 
Reviewing cupcake recipes for same. {yum!}
 
Sketching as part of this class and loving it.
 
Reading "Body of Work" by Pamela Slim and nodding in agreement as I go.
 
Watching Dancing with the Stars - oh my gosh, Amy Purdy is so inspiring!
 
Walking a thin line between helping and overstepping boundaries with a loved one who is in the middle of some awesome changes.
 
Sewing quilt squares for Fiona's Friendship Quilt exchange, and
 
Feeling so very grateful for the kindness and generosity of blog friends.
 
Bracing myself for summer. It's heating up in these parts!
 
Planning a beach-y getaway for August...
 
What are you up to these days?

Lori our resident Horticulure expert says yes, pinch off the flowers on the Cole's, keeps it from going to seed and will encourage it to Bush out instead of becoming leggy.

Busy, busy! I could use a bit of your energy at the moment.
Can't wait to see the party decorations, the last ones were awesome. A beach vacation sounds wonderful, I could use one right now! :)

Finishing Nicholas' quilt top while having so big issues with the sewing machine @@ Planning his grad party and catching up on your posts :) I know you should pinch the flowers off but sometimes I just can't lol I am enjoying the chive flowers so am using the ones without flowers and enjoying the ones with.

What a lovely list. I would definitely pinch that flower off, so it doesn't go to seed and will instead continue to branch out. It makes my heart happy to think of you sketching. I'm heading up to Oregon to see my boy for mother's day.
