Tonight I went out and cleaned out the flower bed in the front just off of my Porch. I have daffodils. hyacinth, and snow crocus planted in there. Then later in the season, my wild violets from "the farm" will bloom there. Many years, I fail to go out before the crocus come up, and then I mess everything up when I try to clean the old leaves up. BUT, TaDa !! this year I am happy to say I got it clean up in plenty of time. Carol is doing her "Happy Dance".

The daffodils and forsythia here are in full bloom. Jesus is here working and he's cleaned out the flower beds, the strawberry patch, and is trying to clean up the yard a bit. It's too wet to do anything else. When we get the wood we're going to make 3 more raised boxes.

Evening all,

I have one crocus blooming... it's purple... daff's are up and green so hope we don't get freezing weather again before they bloom... it was 75* here today.. we went to Sam's and did some necessary shopping and picked up my scrips too... we have an appt to take the Tahoe in tomorrow.. needs brakes... and then an appt with our financial guy we canceled 3 times while I was sick..
then we need to go start pricing new dishwashers... ours decided to not work the first week I was sick and doing dishes by hand is not much fun according to my hubby... he needed to use hand lotion cause his hands dried out.. and we need an new water heater too... ours keeps shutting itself off.

Well I am off to go get ready for bed and hopefully I can sleep.. that is another side effect of being sick- messed up my sleeping schedule...


Have a good evening all!

Nana

Gosh Nana you have wonderful weather....Were still at 32 º here yesterday.
Daffys are up an crocus too .. No blooms yet.
I ditched my dishwasher.. Heating element was costing my $5. a month in electric.
I like hand washing cause it makes my arthritis feel better in the hot water.
I hate all the loading an unloading of the dish washer .....

Always some repairs. Just spent $900. on a new pump. an labor.
Repairs everywhere...$$$$$$$$ we don't have. yikes

Yes Barb we are enjoying our nice weather but March is supposed to be our snowiest month and we need the water... supposed to get some rain soon we hope but I will take the nice right now... makes me feel better...

I am up early today- did get to sleep earlier last night so that helped.. have to follow hubby to take his Tahoe in for new brakes... then have lunch appt with our financial guy... if I have any energy left after that I do need to clean my house- hubby tries but my house is not as clean as I would like- kitchen floor needs mopping and so do bathroom floors.. and it's payday so have to do bills up too... always something...

Well off to eat some breakfast and get my shower ... maybe get a load of laundry started before we have to leave...

Nana
