Good morning. The sun is shining, but it is still a bit on the cool side. Only 33F degrees, and hopefully warming up to the high 40's later today.
Well yesterday was a busy day for me. First I did some laundry, then I was looking through a new gardening catalogue. Oh my, such goodies!!! I found a few things that I just might have to order for our gardens. The plant cage/stakes are at the top of my list. This will help keep the tomatoes and cucumbers from bending down to the ground.
Next I had a lot of fun going through the new "Wild Bird Care" catalogue from Doctors Foster and Smith. I will definitely be ordering a few new things from this catalogue. They have the weather domes that I want for the birdie treat holders. They also have the squirrel chair that I want. I think this is just adorable.
While we were visiting with Aunt Lucy the other day, she was showing us a few of her favorite things. One was an owl that had belonged to her oldest son, Fred Jr. A friend of his had made it from a piece of a tree. I think most of it hand-carved. It's just gorgeous!
On the way home that afternoon, I just had to snap a photo of Pogo who was sitting in his car seat taking in all the sights.
I'm watching the Weather Channel, and oh my gosh, it is depressing. We have a couple of warmer days coming our way along with four or five days of rain. By the time Spring finally settles in our area, it will be summer and too hot to go outside and play in the dirt. Go figure!
I spent a little while on-line yesterday looking for small deck and porch plans. Next, I'm going to try to get a couple of estimates from local contractors. I also want to see if I can find a small deck surround (sort of like a screened in area). If I can find one I like, we can build the little deck to fit it.
So, you can see I have some ambitious plans for this year. It will be interesting to see how much I can actually accomplish. The fun is in the trying.
Before I take my leave, I have a really cute image that I borrowed from the web. I thought it was rather funny (and appropriate).
Well, now I think I'll catch up a bit with my blog reading while I finish the rest of my coffee. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
