I am now writing on my new blog at wordpress as opposed to blogspot. I took several hours this morning (much to my husband’s dismay I’m sure) to get everything just right and I’m so happy to have it all done. This is just a quick hello note from this new spot so there may be more later or there may not be. I’m going to try shutting down the internet and not getting back on here again for a while because this is taking up so much of my time and I feel like such a bum. I made my own yarn yesterday and between Jarell and me we got 10 trees and shrubs planted of the long ago mentioned Burgess order. 2 magnolias, 1 royal empress, 1 scarlet red maple, 2 redbuds, 2 weeping willows, and 2 lilacs. I have many more left including hazelnuts, chestnuts, apricots, wisteria, tulip trees and ever so much more. Hooray! But it is weepinge from the skies today and so I’m going to work on chores that are Desperately in need of being done. Bathroom cleaning anyone?
Its me again because as I went out for my walk today, (self-enforced exercise regimen that I avoid as much as possible) I was reminded that I meant to talk about my first sighting of the true messengers of spring. I’m not speaking of the bluebird or the robin. I’m talking about the ant. Inside my house in my bathroom on the floor and although he was only a scout I’m sure he’s planning on inviting all his family and friends to join him soon. It was a combination of chills and thrills for me because I hate having my house overrun by the six legged kind but knowing that spring is finally almost here is a wonderful relief. I have lots of hopeful egg cartons full of starter mix and herb seeds that I check daily to see if there’s a sign of green. In a fit of future ambition I will start some vegetables too. Its my yearly ritual and only once have any of these starts actually made it into the garden so I’ve got my fingers crossed. I was also ambitious enough to order a bunch of trees from Burgess my favoritest of all times seed and plant catalog so I have my work cut out for me. Just thought I’d share this random info with my invisibles.
