Sun is midday. Clouds all over then clear off then come back.
I have had to pull some really nasty weeds in the back of the house. They are the worse stickers of all.
Charlie is being so good at ignoring the UPH neighbor's yappy dog. I try and walk our path but is too much noise we hide out back.
I moved the file cabinet into the water heat room. Now I'm have trouble with those new switches in the bathrooms. Boy may have to buy two new ones.
I tried to start dusting today. DD's box in work is not easy to fill with stuff to entertain her.
I made tacos for breakfast & lunch and love the corn tortillas I bought from my fresh food place. They didn't break I could bend to form a 3 sided open at the ends bowl for a normal taco. Not to bad over all. I had 3. LOL
I am waiting for a warm up before mowing. But am doing some trimming before hand. There is a horrid vine/bush with nasty needles allover it. I talked to my down hill neighbor and think I am going to cut it way back. I hurt myself on it all the time. It is very big and is along our communal fence.
My honeysuckle was climbing into a tree that is between our fences - theirs is weird and almost useless. So I pulled the vines from the trees and she wound they over to their shed roof hoping to have it attach there. It's a couple of feet... so we shall see.
The deer here have not shown up since before the ice storm. I miss them.
I have been busy doing paperwork. What a mess. I now have to create a new budget for May as there are a few new bills. I keep saying that. Hummm I think it bothers me.
I just fed Charlie and discovered the house is cold. So I turn off the fans - checked outside and turned on the e-heaters. The sun is not warm.
Soli has been lying in front of any heater he comes across that is on.
Charlie has been bouncing around when we go out. No humidity at all.
I want so hot days so I can do larger hand crank loads. I even prefer warmer days for mowing as well.
My fresh food company has joined up with another site to celebrate Earth day and created a pathway with a good idea for every day. I number I already do but there are some clever ones I am going to try. Mostly it is based on non-waste ideas such as eating carrot tops, broccoli stems, how to root herbs in a jar and lots more.
I have a good amount of compost now that can be used if I get a hay bale set up. But I am not peppy at all. In fact I have to force myself to do some chores. Plus having trash pickup is a whole new change to my day. Every day.
Boy has been crabby, But I totally understand that with them not being able to take any boxes to H for shipping. It's really putting the pressure on them financially.
I received a call from my MN storage woman. Her mother started the company now she runs it in addition to working in the health system.
They are upgrading their computerised key system on their gates. We had a great talk and I will keep the new key until Boy & DDIL go to PU my stuff. I hope in June????? but they way they are busy when they can ship... I don't know what will happen.
plus the wall sockets in the bathrooms are another problem. I may just buy a floor lamp from walmart and stick it in the water heater closet/room so I have access to them both. Yep I moved the new one in with my other file cabinet. Thank goodness I have the two armoires. And don't use the bathtub in my bathroom but only the shower. That leaves the shower rod open for clothes to dry. Or just hang if too lazy. lol I also have a weird floor lamp whose top is a round circle of metal with space for the bulb to be exposed. No lamp shade works on it. So it is by my bathroom window and so I fold my work jeans up and toss them on top. The lamp is not plugged in. Works for me. LOL
Every night I wake up about 3am freezing. as it was warm when I went to bed. I get up and turn on the heaters... even the front rom is chilly. I wake about 6am if Charlie & the cats don't wake me sooner. Charlie watches to see if the sun is up. I refuse to go out if it is foggy and chilly. Dog gone it. LOLOL
Lots of wildflowers... morning glory vines are all over. The hummers are eating me out of house & home. I will buy two moats from chewy today. I fixed Chance's food bar that now hangs from the clothes line under an umbrella. It has two cups - one at either end for seeds. The birds use them but the squirrels know if I put leftover seeds from Chance in them. I really need to move all the feeders to better spots out back. But the yard is just made of fossils and rocks. ARRRGH!
Oh well. Charlie wants to go out. Its 415pm so I fed him now he wants to play ball.
I didn't really reply to you post. Charlie is standing next to me staring at me with those big brown eyes and now he is starting to grumble. LOLOL
Gotta go. Hope things get easier for you. And me to.
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
