My fault, I never noticed the amount of posts.

Well, March break is here, the weather is nice....and this household is full of sick people. I was planning to do the spring cleaning this week but that is 'out the window'. rolz

That is the plan, I did much of nothing but watch tv yesterday....I need to turn off the news channel though. The world is in such disarray.

Yes, I agree. I told Rod I really did not care to hear the news. There was nothing I could do to fix the issues, and all hearing about it did was to upset me.

I am the same way, I do not even know the people but I feel anxious and worry for them. Right now, DH is following the Texas fires, along with the Ukraine war...then is obsessed with how your politics go.

Let's talk about spring/Summer, yesterday I did get some seeds for the garden. grin ~I keep a lot of the heirloom seeds but buy carrot and such.

Yes, I have bought some onion bulbs and a few flower seeds. I intend to plant some dwarf marigolds around my tomato plants thus year.

I always plant marigolds in my veggie garden, it does work for pests. Are you expanding your planting this year??

Nope, no expanding...I have 2 raised beds .6 feet each. But I think I will add some marigolds to the bed where the tomatoes will go.

I plant marigolds too but I don't know that they help or maybe things would be worse without them - I'm not gonna try it. smile

I didn't know either. But I have read that it does help, so why not try. After all they are pretty.

I know, here too. They forecast 1 temp and we get a much nicer one. That is good but I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop.

The shoe is dropping for us Sunday into Monday, it is calling for over a foot of snow.

The sun is shining today though.

Take the sun when you can get it. My Grandson's birthday is in the end of April. In years past, he has already played in the snow on his birthday. I will hope he does not do so this year.

They just keep adding to our storm, we are supposed to have at least another 16 inches by tomorrow morning. Of course, whatever bug we caught is making me sicker than when I had Covid. Jeepers, I can't wait for March to be gone.

Sunny did you get 16 more inches of snow?

I've been to Gatlinburg TN with Ging and her crew. We had such fun. It's like spring in my yard but Wednesday morning is supposed to be freezing so a lot of stuff will be gone.

Gardening...I have a few plans. But it is a bit early for them. At least I think so. I will need to add soil to my 2 beds and then rotate where I will plant my potatoes and tomatoes. I will need to replant a few perennials in the yard as well. But right now, I have my daughters "All the Things" Party over with. It is April 7 th.

Well larger in that a few of Rod & my family members are coming, and some are/may be staying with us. Kinda looking forward to it.

Midnight.

Sweet dreams everyone. Sleep well.

I am glad that you are looking forward to it, I will await all the details. grin

We got a snow/rain mix through the night...everything is covered in ice again. We only have half the snow we normally get so I guess the 'trade in ice' is a given.

Sorry for the ice, Sunny. While I am sure getting less snow is a good thing. I hope that you have enough for insulation.

It froze here last night, and I forgot to cover things. I am afraid to go out and look at my daffodils and my magnolia tree.

The daffodils will be fine, ours get covered in snow even in bloom, they are as tough as dandelions. Not sure about the magnolia blooms though, was it in bud?

The Magnolia not only was in bud, they were mostly bloomed out. The winds a few nights ago got rid of a lot if them, I imagine the freeze didn't help. (I have not looked out yet)

I had 3 daffodils blooming last night. I picked them, I figured that would make my Cora
happy tonight.

Below freezing here this morning.

We get freezes like that every few years, at times when the apple/cherry trees are in bud. It is a loss of fresh produce for the year.

We are getting a clearer day today, it is time I get out to pay bills.

The magnolia tree is all brown now, so no more pretty flowers. But it will soon be putting out leaves, it will then once again look nice. Nothing else was harmed. We are hoping those freezes are done for the year. We do not get fresh peaches in the area some years because of that. It happens to apples as well but that bothers me less. I can always buy apples at the store.

Today is fixing up Easter gifts to mail. I was going to work outside but there will be warmer days for that.

Sorry about the magnolia, I forgot that they bloom before leafing.

It is snowing out but is a milder day so it won't be so bad. Mind you, they are calling for a major storm for the weekend.

Today is a do nothing and care of my Granddaughter kind of day. She is home from school which is only a half day. Hopefully I can find some smaller projects to do today that won't interfere with here being here.

I hope they are wrong about the forecast, Sunny. Here, our weather is supposed to continue to go up and down. SMH..

I hope you and your granddaughter had a fun day Junie.

Well, a foot of snow has fallen again with another 12 to 18 inches to fall on Saturday. I guess Mother Nature decided to just wait until spring to send us the Winter snow that missed us. In like a lamb out like a lion instead. lol

Sad but true. You need to tell mother nature that she has it backwards. But here we have occasionally had snow in April and very occasionally one in May. Thank fully that is not the norm though.

Mailing off my Easter to the east coast today.
