WINTER REMINDERS

After morning chores,exercise,breakfast I headed out to pick up g-son from pre-school and deliver 2 caramel cakes.
When we got home,the neighbor had his big track hoe in the creek clearing the log jams that fell in during all the rains this winter. When g-son heard the noise and I told him that was one of his friend's pawpaw down there,he sat down in the yard so he could see down there and watched for a long time. Then as soon as he woke up from his nap he wanted to go to the creek.
While he napped I worked on my shop,I'll be so glad to finish this job,it was more of a job than I thought but it has to be done.
Before and after pictures coming soon!!
As we walked down to the creek I looked around and rejoiced at all the colors of spring,the green grass,the red buds on the trees,but any where you look there is still also evidence of just how harsh this winter weather has been, broken limbs lay everywhere and some whole trees that snapped under the weight of ice and snow are constant reminders.
Today's weather has been great,this morning it was 32 degrees and this afternoon it is 72 degrees,wow, that's a 40 degree change and that's why my long sleeve shirt is now very uncomfortable! The sun feels so good,I wish I had time to get out my lounge chair and just soak it up. Hubbie is getting one of our raised beds ready for some early veggies.
I put out a bag of "Hollytone" to hopefully stop the death of my holly tree and magnolia tree.
After supper we fixed a fence that a limb had fallen on and then did our evening chores,
the cattle are still expecting to be fed every evening even though they are getting some grass now.
We had a quiet evening after we came inside,I payed bills and did some paperwork to get ready for my errands tomorrow. And I filled out my census so I can mail it back tomorrow,my patriotic duty for today!!!!
Remember life is precious,handle it with care and praise God!
Good Night and God Bless.

Well---since I am your weather predictor (since it gets to us before getting to you)--- I will tell you that we are having lots of rain RIGHT now. We've had high winds all day. So beware---it's headed your way!!!!

I worked in our yard some this week--and just like you, found evidence of a hard winter. I raked and cleaned up sticks and branches and junk all over the place. Lots more work to be done.

Hope you have a good day tomorrow... Can't wait to see your shop.
Hugs,
Betsy
