Welcome

You have made it all the way here, so you may as well sit down, take a minute to look around, and enjoy. What you will find, depends on the day and my mood. You just never can tell.

Finally! Spring!


Spring is here.  I say it again, Spring is Here!  And with that I say, Oh, thank goodness.  Ohio is one of those places that you really can’t tell what the weather is going to be like at any given time other than in winter.  Winter is grey, cold, windy, and wet.  All. Season. Long.  I get really sad during the winter months.  I think I am a descendant of Superman, as I need the sun to rejuvenate.  Without it, I tend to wilt and close off. 

Now that spring has finally arrived, not as scheduled I might add, I am spending as much time as possible outside in it!  That means, it’s orchard pruning time and flowerbed clean time.  Work some might say, meditation I say.  How peaceful I find it, to be out in the sunshine, the gentle (sometimes) wind blowing against my sun warmed face, a pair of shears in my hand, and the sound of the snip snip snip of the branches as I clip them off.  I could spend hours out there and I sometimes do. 

It’s not hard back breaking work, such as the mulching that will be coming in May or the branch clean up, or the several (11ish) fallen trees to be removed thanks to the winds of last fall, or planting of flowers and leaf pickup and grass mowing,  It’s an easy calming chore that I enjoy.  Oh I enjoy the other outside chores, but I tend to break a sweat doing that other stuff.  Pruning is just fun and easy and quite.

What are you doing now that it’s spring?

  2. So far, we are still in the sun....please let it stick for a while. Too bad about the snow in your yard. I feel for you. It seemed like Winter would never go away.

  3. Yesterday, we had 60 degree weather. Today, thunder and rain. From what I hear, tomorrow or the next day we'll be getting snow! I'm so ready for 80-90 degree days so I can finally turn my heat off. :)

  4. Today is the second spring-like day in a row. Yipeee! I love being out and about on these days. It's so much more bearable to get errands done when the sun is shining. I'm not much for yard work anymore and to be honest, gorgeous weather or not, I'm usually inside at my computer, writing.

    1. What? Get your patootey outside and write! Find the shade tree, or the picnic table, or the wild flowers. We all need that fresh air.
