No snow here. Just very windy and has been for weeks. A breeze is nice but this wind is getting old.

I picked up Colt yesterday. Maybe I'll just keep him.

Good morning. I hope to stay awake today and get a few things done.
How does Colt feel about that, Sheri?
I hope this is your last snow, Sunny.

Good morning !

Sunny, thanks for the coffee and the new CH ! Sorry for the snow ❄/ sleet.

Sheri..nice to see you, have fun with having Colt there with you.
...........I think the weather is messed up for us all....anymore I figure we get what we get. I wish our weather and everything else would go back to " normal" though.normal

TIna...perhaps just a "me" Day is in order. Don't donut unless it would make you happy to do it.

Nothing like a grandkid to keep you on your toes Sheri lol

GG is doing a school STEAM project at the moment....rock candy. I hope it works, I hate to waste pantry staples....it uses two cups of sugar.

I cleaned and mopped today...the snow has finally stopped.

It's hard to mess up rock candy, Sunny. But I agree to the food waste when times are so iffy.
May your snow be over until next season.

Wow Sunny... sounds like my grands, they begged for a 1500 piece puzzle last summer and then had to go home before it was finished,,, hubby finished it and said he would put it out again this yr for them but looks like it may be next before we get another visit... who knows maybe the heat will kill the virus but sure not counting on it... at least I have a portable table
(was my Mom's) that we can do puzzles on to keep it out easily.

Well not much happening here in sunny AZ.. it's really hot and I told hubby I needed air on if he expected any cleaning or cooking done by me... over 100 and I don't move much....
He turned it on and now I can breath , even mopped my kitchen! LOL!

Well off to make a couple more masks and then put my machine back together... it's 8 ft wide when I open it all the way so takes up a lot of room in my ofc space... I will have enough masks made that we can wear and wash in between … or go out a couple times if we have to....

Stay well my friends....

Nana

Yes, We have a box of disposable masks in the house, but I would like some that I could throw into the washing machine. If I could ever get out to buy a sewing machine, I would make my own...my cousin says it is not hard...

The sun is shining and today will be a melting day. I am going for a window visit with GB today......I have to make a pick up at the hardware store for DH, so both will get done on the same trip.

They are calling for a snow storm for Mother's Day here....it never ends.

I move to make Tina the new Mother Nature lol Any one second the motion?

We found out that our local hardware store is closing at the end of the month....for good. It has been passed down through 3 generations with no one wanting to continue it. It's a sad day for us all.

Oh no ! I am so sorry. I know how you feel though, growing up We had a local hardware store that had plants, seeds, and kitchen items one could buy for shower gifts and such...the father passed and it closed...

I have seen so many stores of many kinds close over the years. It is so sad. Every time.
I also think that ours stores and restaurants, etc, will not all reopen from all of this. It will be interesting to see our world post-covid.
I am not running to become Mother Nature at this time (or any time). Too much responsibility.

Yes, Sunny, bare spots are good. A nice start to your spring/ summer.

Rainy here but as I hear birds, I guess the rain has stopped for a few.

Good Morning.

yea, Tina,,there is a lot of that getting old stuff going around....I pulled a huge flower pot around outside and my back was hurting for 30 minutes...This aging thing is sure not for sissies that is for sure.
Perhaps when the weather gets dry and hot your legs will do better....take care.

It's been over 100 degrees for the last couple of days and cooled down to 91 today. Heat is not helping.
Actually it does help better than cold weather. Just a bad day.

Good morning.

I hope today is better for you, Tina.

Here is a cool day but I will go out and uncover my plants in a few ..it was sure easier to do last night since I had the Really large pots. I hope we do not have anymore if this after I plant the tomatoes out....

I will go out and work on the grass under my blackberries today. I sure hope it warms up.

Well it is in the 50's. But no grass to rake..and the BlackBerry edging I have already done, looks as if I did not touch it..I need to go back to the drawing board...perhaps paper or cardboard as a barrier before I put down grass clippings....humm!.
