Well here I finally am.... much later than planned thanks to crappy internet service!
Our one and only option for DSL and it
Now down to business :)
Let's get the drink out of the way right away...cause you know I'll forget if I don't.
Today I'm being bad! I'm having a soda :/
A sugar laden syrupy sweet can of destruction that I just couldn't resist.
Back when I drank soda all of the time Cream Soda was my favorite and the brand was A&W. Still my favorite tasting but they now put caffeine in it and the Hubs can't have caffeine in the evening or he doesn't sleep. So the generic brand it is.
As you can see by the lack of progress I haven't been doing much art since last week.
Mostly I've been reading and wishing it were warmer.
We had two hard freezes on Sunday and Monday nights and we lost some of the Apple blossoms. Which is actually fine. I won't have to knock off so many apples this year so that the remaining ones grow bigger and sweeter for the darn squirrels :(
The Lilacs are blooming! The bush was infested with those Japanese Beatles a couple of years ago and I thought we were going to lose it. It seems to be coming out of it now :)
My dad gave me a small start off of his bush when we bought the place in 2002. It was only about a foot and a half tall then.
The bees are loving the apple trees ♥
This little sparrow was singing so loudly I could here him inside with the windows and doors shut. His song was beautiful and I wish I had thought to record it. Don't know if he was just happy or trying to attract a mate :)
This is the birdhouse that was such a point of conflict last week between the Bluebirds and the Junco's. The Bluebirds must have won because I haven't seen the Junco's at all in 3 days. Maybe they decided to go ahead and fly North like they were supposed to .
Here's a Sunset photo looking through the woods out back. When the trees all leaf out I will not be able to see the sunset :(
Or the neighbor behind me trashy yard :)
