Hawk was here today!

We had a "sharp-shinned hawk" come visiting and was sitting on our fence. They are year 'round residents, but we have never seen one that close to us, it could see us sitting on the porch! We think the many small birds that came to eat our birdseed, was the attraction. However, it may have been it's intention, but the small birds just took off immediately when the hawk arrived. It was unnerving for us to see a bird of prey so near our doors.

Our temp is to be 82F here today. Spring is official this Sunday but it has been "springlike" for a couple of weeks now. Our fruit trees are in bloom and hubby just went to Walmart to get some fertilizer for them. He has fertilized the roses already. So many of our shrubs look awful after that deep freeze last month. We just don't know if we can save any of them.

Nothing new happening here, and that is indeed good news. Take care all and enjoy your Spring!

March 2011

I really hope that this month is better than last month! February was the pits. We had that horrible deep freeze that killed much of the local flora. Also our town had frozen water pipes of epic proportions, every other home had some water damage. We were without running water for 7 days total. So I am glad that is done and over with and then my computer modem (qwest) went down and I had to send it off for repairs. I guess I thought they could just repair it online, but no and worse yet, I sent it to a wrong address and it was sent back and then I had to resend it. I hope the rest of this month shapes up. Our weather forecast shows 70s and upward all next week so thank goodness for that. My telephone is vonage and it has also been OFF since it is dependent on my internet connection. I went out a bought a little tracfone and am having trouble activating it, don't know why. You know, life gets much harder when you get older..that is all I can say about that.

So anyway, I sure hope life has been better for the rest of you. I see that my friend Lyn was having water problems;( but who hasn't. Have good days people and enjoy Springtime!!!!
