Hurry Spring....

We Have Had Snow 15 Out of the Last 19 Days!

Enough already!
 Gary has been putting a lot of manure in the gardens and is anxious
to plant some strawberries between the rhubarb and the raspberries.
Even tho we got rid of 2 huge gardens, we still have a lot of room
next to the garlic.

 Once again I gave the girls a break from the mud and 
put them back in the smaller pasture with some hay.

 As per usual, the wind kicked up.

 At 9:30 I was down at the old Village Hall to judge a poster contest.
For the past 6 years we have had a Low Bridge High Water
event when the Erie Canal opens for the season in May.
The 4th graders study the Canal and participate by submitting
drawings.  There were 84 participants this year.  Here are some samples.

On the way home I stopped at Wegmans and then picked up a "fitbit," which was a total pain in the butt to set up.  Fortunately they were kind enough to walk me
through it...and it took a long time!
This afternoon we had more snow and I'm hoping this is the last day.
By Monday or Tuesday we should start a 3 day series in the 60s.
I might faint.
 Dinner was leftovers...fine with us.
By the way, we are doing very well without cable tv.
Our indoor antennas are giving us 26 channels in the kitchen and
42 in the living room.  Neither of them will be used very much and
that seems like an improvement to me.
 Gary is still managing to find wood so we can have fires when
it's cold like this.

 Over and out.
Night all.

Still Feels Like Early March...

More snow on the ground this morning.

 It's going to take a very long time for this water to disappear.
 Fortunately it did not rain all day and the girls were free to wallow in the mud.

 Another new blossom.

 Instead of going to Agape this morning, I decided to go to the Rec Center
as it is much closer to our house.   The equipment will take a little getting used to,
as will the space.
I turned in our cable box to Spectrum and picked up a second indoor antenna.
Gary got everything hooked up and we are in business.
No more cable shows.

At 3 I had an appointment to have my eyes checked and I ordered 
a new pair of reading glasses.
Soloed for dinner.
Sloppy Joes and macaroni Salad.
Gary had a dinner/board meeting.
 The Hibiscus in the dark makes the color look even richer.

I need a nap.
Night all.
