I think I’ve figured out the problem with our weather –
1 The Universal Thermostat is broken and needs a competent repair person
2 The Whoever Controls-the-Thermostat is broken and needs to be replaced
3 SOMEONE IS NOT PAYING ATTENTION!
Honestly – a solid week of freezing temperatures, with snow!
I thought every day last week about sitting down at the computer and saying hello to everyone, however . . . I thought it as I walked outside to do something in the springtime.
Honestly, couldn’t have accomplished nearly as much without the help of my SA granddaughter who came over for the weekend.
I always think cold weather is going to put a hit on the weeds.
See all the green stuff – weeds. Argh!
But, I feel assured spring is here. Know why?
No, not because the flowers are blooming or the trees are budding out.
I love to look at seed catalogues. I seldom buy anything but I am always tempted. The problem, of course, is that I'm tempted by pretty pictures of things that WILL NOT GROW HERE IN OUR HUMIDITY AND HEAT! Not that I haven't tried to convince many things that this is somewhere else and it should grow, bloom, look like the catalogue, but . . . no, never works.
During the move, I seem to have lost several things. And, that’s odd considering the process of this move.
One of the lost items was my birdfeeder so I had to get another one.
It’s hung on a hook just off my front deck and in front of a window so the boys can watch all the birdies. And, watch them, they do. Me too.
So far, we’ve seen
Keeping an eye out for the male.
Today is March 1, also called Hlyd monath which means Stormy month, or Hraed monath which means Rugged month. Yes – we’re having some of that today. And, March 1 “comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb” – yes, we’re having that too.
And finally, It’s National Pig Day!
