Blogging since 4-27-08. This is my journal. A place to share bits of me, my family and life and other things of interest to me, and I hope to you. A place to meet new friends and bond with old. A place to share my thoughts and projects in sewing, beading and needlework. It only takes a moment to say hello!
Spring Is Here, But Has Anyone Told The Weatherman!!
We have daffodils blooming by the pond. The lilac bushes are budding right along with some of the other bushes. The birds are building nests and you can hear see male sparrows sitting on the top of the birdhouses they have selected, calling for a mate to join them.
O, but what happened yesterday (Saturday)! Snow mixed with rain fell in broad daylight, dashing hopes of shorts and flip flops coming out anytime soon. Forget about working in the yard to clear debris and leaves left from late fall.
But what do I care!! I know the weather will get warmer and when it does, I'M READY! I found these Ranunculus. I liked them so much after I got them home that I went back and bought 7 more pots. I usually select shades of purple or orange, but Terry wanted me to buy all colors so that's what we did. When it gets just a little warmer, we'll go out to the pond and move he ornamental grasses farther from the pond. Terry planted them too close and they have spread to unmanagable sizes. Yay for me, because I have flower plans for where they were. The wind we had brought to light some issues with our privacy fence. Our lot is 285' long and the perimeter is privacy fenced. The wind blew down a couple of sections which made us realize that we need to start replacing it all. Its been up for more than 25 years so we expected that we would have to. Its not such an issue as far as the work goes because the boys are always willing to work and learn something new, but financially at $25 a section plus new posts, well darn it!!
Terry just called me to the window. Bluebirds are scoping out one of our bird houses. They are so beautiful, but we have so many English Sparrows around which love to kill them, that I almost would rather the BB move on. We'll see how it goes.
I have been making fabric (shabby chic) flowers. I'll be showing them later in the week.
Junior is doing very well and looks great. Some days he's tired, but mostly still loves to chase the laser light.
For those that have been asking, on April 7 I went to the dentist to have a mold made for my falsies. Usually two weeks later you go back for the first fitting. But my dentist took my deposit and went on vacation ~lol~ so I don't go back now until April 26. I have been really pleased with this entire situation. I am patiently waiting to have them and feel comfortable with them. On August 7, Terry and I will be married 40 years and I have already paid to have our pictures taken by a photographer for the newspaper. Gosh I love my guy.
So, please remember all the things that you are grateful for today.
I'm thinking of my family and friends, pets and critters, jobs and the ability to help those in need.
