Good morning. Gosh, it feels so good to be home after spending the night with the Queen of Crabbiness. Folks, I know I can be a crabby old fool sometimes, but the Mrs takes the cake! I just hope that when I am her age I am not so unpleasant all the time.
We used to have more people than we needed at work, but now we have gone past "bare bones". Ms Crabapples is chasing everyone away with her terrible behavior. If one us remaining ladies drops just one of our shifts, there will be no one to take it over. That's sad.
On to more fun stuff. The sun is shining beautifully, and today's temp is supposed to around 59F and partly cloudy with rain tonight and thunderstorms tomorrow morning. Oh well, at least it's warmer.
I have a fun photo to share this morning. Audrey was out in the field near her yard and was surprised by some turkeys. She managed to get a photo just as they were flying away. Great shot, Audrey!
I also thought I would share some photos of the assorted bird families at our local park. Today I'll start with my favorite family. These ducks are always together, and I think they are just gorgeous! In this first photo, I've put a yellow circle around this family, followed by individual photos of each of them.
Aren't they just beautiful? They seem like such a happy family. I'll crop a few more photos of other families to share tomorrow.
Yesterday, Joe started cleaning out the gardens. There are a lot of plants coming up through the ground, and the daffodils will most likely be the first to bloom. We have a large shady spot that Joe is preparing so that we can plant some wildflowers there to add a little more color to the yard. It will be so nice to see color in that part of the yard.
This afternoon, we will work on the garden on the other side of the house. Pretty soon we can bring out the lawn chairs and set up Pogo's play tent. I am just itching to take a trip to the Home Depot Lawn and Garden Center. I've been staying away because it has been too cool for planting, but I think now is a good time to be picking out some new plants.
I also want to put down some new grass seed. It's wonderful to look out and see green lawn on both sides of the house. We need to pick up some new fencing for our veggie garden too. I have marigold seeds to plant and a large bottle of cayenne papper to help keep the critters out of the garden this year.
Now I'm going to see what kind of mischief Pogo and I can get into today. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
