Sassy using Nick's rear for a pillow during nap time!
but that doesn't mean we won't get backhanded by the weather again! We had a heck of a storm the other night that caused the weather radio to blare 3 times in the dead of night. The first time was a tornado watch, but since the radar looked okay, and the watch was in effect for 3 more hours, I went back to bed. The next two were various stages of thunderstorm warnings, but all I did was jolt out of bed and say some "blue" words! Woke up grumpy!
But today is beautiful and tomorrow will be even better! I uncovered my raised beds that I planted in the fall, just for a little sun bath!
Spinach that didn't really germinate and romaine lettuce
The carrot forest needs thinning!
The garlic from Halloween is up!
Daffodils in front of Steve the shed
Close up of Steve's finery
Incredibly short peach tree in bloom
Even the poor apple trees that the deer stripped in the fall are blooming!
Oh, and I had a great birthday on Monday! Stud Muffin and I had lunch out and I got gifts!!
From my sister Christina, I got a box overflowing with thrifted pillowcases and sheets! Does she know me or what?!? She also included a big Ziploc bag of our favorite iced cappuccino mix that I can't get here in the boondocks! I'm about to have a cappuccino coma and die a happy (older) woman!
From my younger sister Cheryl and her son, I got the most perfect dozen red roses!
Stud Muffin is getting me a tiller which I will go get tomorrow. Sears is having a fabulous sale on them and since I know the local store owners, they are also giving me the additional "senior" discount available only that Friday. At least I think it's because I know them (and have spent a ton with them!) that they are giving me the extra discount! Maybe they think I AM a senior citizen!! That would certainly be a blow to my ego!
I even got a handwritten birthday card from Catty Ax Lady from Whilrwind Lodge, who, by the way, isn't nearly as scary as she sounds! Thanks Kel!!
So, it has been another wonderful day here at Kilohana (or Feet First Farm, as I like to call it 'cause that's the only way I'm going to leave it!) Tomorrow is supposed to get up to 71 degrees and I plan on working in my veggie garden. There are seeds to sow, you know!!
