Spring is definitely here. It's all emerald green out there. Yesterday morning I walked the Girls in the woods on top of the cliff where spring has arrived. Dogtooth violets, bloodroot, hepaticas and Dutchmanís breeches are in bloom with trilliums showing white petals. I love the spring wildflowers up there.
Rob and Doug came around yesterday and got my wicker furniture out of the barn loft and put it on the porch.
I'll wait for slightly warmer weather before I put out the cushions though.
Kevin did the patio job and hung the new back room doors. I paid him right away and he's very happy! There are lots of deadbeats around here who are very slow to settle bills and I know he's strapped for cash. He also asked me for a lesson in how to make gravy! As a single parent he cooks a lot but is stymied over gravy!
I woke with a start at 6 this morning when I suddenly remembered I have to take the car to the dealer for 8! Strange how your brain bubbles along while you sleep. I should take it out and put it in a jar on the dresser!
Sarah comes for a full day's work at 9 so I'll have to leave her a list to get her started. Hersh has her job after lunch so I'll have another work-on-your-own task for Sarah. She is working out well and is worth every penny!
Yesterday I succumbed to an attack by Ruffles and melba rounds with Cheez Whiz!
Strange! I had a protein breakfast but just had those cravings. No damage, done according to the scale, but I'll be very careful today. I've got a stupid chest cold which may be the cause. The little girl in me wanted comfort food!
My reminder just popped up to put the dump stuff out on the road for Jeff. I cleaned out a part of the basement where we used to make wine and have a huge mess of wine bottles to send for recycling! Great for the reputation!
Gotta get cracking! Have a Heavenly Hump Day!
