Is it Friday already ?? My time is flying by lately with all the business that the warm weather of spring brings.
Busy this morning after chores in my blackberry patch. To multiply my vines last fall I layed rocks on the ends of some of the vines touching the ground. Today I clipped the parent vines loose from the new plant starts and some of the ones that had naturally rooted in not so good places I potted to be set out later. I grow a blackberry variety called Heritage which is a large very sweet berry but the vines are expensive so each year I try to propagate my vines with this "tip layering method".
As I walked by one of the plum trees that was the first to bloom and I was afraid the fruits had gotten frozen, but the tree is absolutely loaded with plums.
I picked up g-son from pre-school and stopped by the post office on the way home to mail bills for the week. With gas fast approaching $4.00 a gallon I am putting more thought into organizing my trips to town. Hubbie filled his truck up on Wednesday night while we were out and payed $3.85, I filled my van up the next day and payed $3.90, a nickle overnight price hike. Plus as gas goes up so does everything else.
After lunch while g-son went to work on his Lincoln Log construction projects I baked 3 blackberry wine and 2 pound cakes.
The morning's sunshine slowly disappeared behind the clouds as I watched out the kitchen window so I looked for inside things for g-son and I to do.
After watching him build a fire tower and bathroom that adjoined it he wanted to go downstairs to exercise on my gazzelle. So after he did this we turned the TV on down there and he proceeded to build himself a fort to play in. I took advantage of his busy construction to do some constructing of my own.
I eliminated the pile of cut-outs that I had from several weeks ago.
I had one more little girls jean apron to make.
I like the rhinestone butterflies on this one.
I had also ran across a jean skirt that I turned into 2 aprons with the addition of lace on the sides.
Hubbie came home just as the rain started this evening. And #1 son came in from Asheville with the replacement door for his house that the robbers damaged. I know what he will be doing tomorrow !!
We did chores in a light rain this evening and the rain showers have been heavy on and off all evening.
We really need a good soaking rain and maybe this will stop all the fires for a while. Hubbie said I could thank him for this rain tonight because he had watered the new cabbage plants this evening.
The evening passes so quickly now that the time has changed, it seems as soon as darkness arrives it is time to get ready for bed. I miss having some snuggling time with my 4-legged kids each night.
Thanking God tonight for all the blessings of today including the renewing rainfall tonight.
Good Night and God Bless.
