Our Journey Helping Those In Need Throughout North America
I am enjoying it, because I was out to hang up my clothes (love my clothesline!!), take a reading on how many of my hostas in front of our house survived the winter (only two), and water my lavatera seeds and strawberry plants (which have many blooms already). I now know not to plant the hostas in flower pots, as none of them survived. I was happy to have most of the ones planted in the ground come through the winter just fine. Live and learn… With the bit of a breeze out there, the clothes were dry in no time at all.
We spent a very quiet Mother’s Day, but it was very nice! The week before Mother’s Day, I could not resist buying a large flower pot full of flowers from the nearby nursery – they were a very reasonable price and it was simply taking too long to be spring! Soon the pots would be picked over, and my thinking was: get there first!! Now my challenge is to ensure the beautiful potted plants “make it” over the next few months (easier said than done…).
Quote on Facebook: “When you see something beautiful in someone, tell them. It may take a second to say, but for them it could last a lifetime.”
Just have to brag about this “old man” of mine! He doesn’t say “I don’t DO windows”!! He just got out this week and there he was, washing all of our windows, which may or may not have been washed last year… There are 8 big windows in our sun room alone, as well as three doors with windows. I believe he said he did not get all the windows in the house done, but the main ones are clean as a whistle! Thank you dear husband!
Every day, we pulled some of the mountains of snow down on the yard where it had melted away, and we are happy to say we have our yard back. The siding is laying along the fence waiting for spring for its owner to come and get it ASAP. The snow that had piled up between the car cover and the truck is gone, so the way is clear to remove the siding. YAY!
