Old Man Winter, "It's Time To Leave!!"

March 30, 2016

My goodness, I'm having all sorts of problems this morning trying to type this post.  First, Blogger would not open, then it jammed my computer.  Eventually, I had to shut down the computer and wait a while before trying again.  It seems to be working okay now.

It's sunny here in New England and the temps are in the mid 40's.  It should be warming up to the mid 50's by early afternoon.  It feels like Spring!!  We do, however, have a heavy wind warning for tomorrow.  Well, we'll deal with that when it gets here.

Yesterday, while SIL Eddie was upstairs installing a new bathroom cabinet, I ran out to do a few errands.  While I was shopping, I picked up some really pretty outfits for my daughter Laura Jean.  Today I will have a look at "Buck & Buck's latest catalogue to see if there is anything there that Laura can use.  They have some nice things.

As for the bathroom cabinet, it looks great!!  Thanks Eddie.  What would I do without you?  Now we just need to shop for a new wall mirror for over the sink and a new light.  Maybe we'll pick up some new tile for the floor too. 

Also yesterday, my new planters arrived.  Now I can't wait to get them set up and filled with dirt so that they are ready for new plants.  A couple more weeks should do it, I hope. 

I found an interesting image on the web and thought I would share it here.  The weather has been really weird this past year.  This image shows how different some of the temps have been.  Wow!  Talk about strange!!

There's also been a lot more problems with pollen and asthma.  I think it's because the strange weather and temps have affected Mother Nature too.  Gosh, poor Maxine!!  I know just how she feels.

You're not going to believe this, but the Weather Channel just said that we will be having snow next Tuesday.  Huh???  We don't really need more snow.  Not now!!  It's time for digging in the dirt and raking up dead leaves.  Someone please tell Old Man Winter to go away!!! 

SIL Eddie just called to say that he will be here shortly to help me hang the new curtains.  I guess I'd best go get dressed.  I think I look adorable in my jammies, but he might not agree.  So, till  tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Sounds like you have a lot of spring projects going on at your house. Let's hope the snow decides to stay away.

Sounds like SIL is a very good handy fellow. Nice you have someone like that. I totally agree with you, the weather is out of control all over. Hang in as it will get better.

First belated Happy Birthday to Janet.
Your Eddie is a wonderful man.
Oh, great your planters arrived, but then you don't want to have more snow, is it?
Perhaps they are mistaking at the weather channel????????
I really love lavender plants, I thnk they will do well in your garden too.
They smell nice and they also keep lice away from roses and such. And it is even not really hard to make more of them. Just cut some fresh end of stems with a little heal of wooded stem on it and put it into the soil,
You have a lovely day and have fun with Janet.
