77 DEGREES ???? IT ISN'T EVEN SPRING YET !!!!

Thankfully it's getting a little easier each morning to get up especially when I look out the window and see that beautiful sunshine out there.
After chores and breakfast I moved the other white silkie into her own brooder box.( hatching condo)

Now we just wait for the little guys to hatch out. They are both setting on the neighbor's eggs from his americana green egg layers but he doesn't have an americana rooster so it will be a surprise what they look like.
I took a walk this morning in this almost hot 77 degree sunshine.
Spotted this argument going on ..... No wonder no one likes loud mouths !!!!!

The cardinal or the blackbird do not appear to be intimidated by the Grackle's loud mouth !!
This little Chipping Sparrow is minding it's own business
These little guys look like they have brown caps on their heads.

After a pretty leisurely morning the afternoon was very different. I cleaned all the floors in the house and then swept off all the porches and steps outside.
After vacuuming, sweeping, mopping and swiffering my back was crying out in pain. But I wasn't near done with today's to do list. All the inside plants needed watering today and a washer load of rugs needed washing before I got to enjoy the beautiful day outside.
After doing some pruning to get some vine out of one of my peach trees I had a cool drink while waiting for hubbie to get home.
We tackled the huge pile of logs and brush that the tree cutters made last November when we had a couple big pine trees taken down.
After about an hour and a half we were both ready to call it a day. Even my bruised toe from last week was hurting again from trying to hang on to  the steep slope while dragging brush around the hill.
We didn't get finished but probably one more evening will do it.
After chores we had supper and then rested while we watched survivor on TV . Hubbie headed to bed after the show and I had weekly paperwork to do.
My "to do" list was all done except some sewing, but when the weather is this nice I can't bring myself to stay inside so the sewing will go on another days' list.
I am blogging at 10:30 so I can get my achy bones in bed earlier also.
With this weather as warm as it is I am surely wondering what later spring and summer will bring.
Working on some new St. Patrick Day recipes for market Saturday.
God has blessed me so freely with good health ,I am humbly grateful and strive to honor Him each day for His goodness.
Good Night and God Bless.
