Hi "Nope", I was out digging more boxes out of the shed to pack stuff for the shelters, etc..wish I had done this earlier. I have about 3 coats to unload some battered woman somewhere in one of these shelters would probably loved to have. It was a quick 2 trips in and out. Despite the nastiness out there...now just wind, chill, and gloomy overcast, the birds were still singing up a storm. I have stop that minute to thank our Creator for the gift to hear such a sound.Morinin' AB! I already got the garbage taken out, WooHoo!! It's not too hard if I take it slowly. One thing checked off of my list of things to do today! YAY!! Unfortunately, I now have an additional half sink full of dishes to wash, hehe! But the chickens are always REALLY happy of fridge cleaning day, LOL!!
I love those Godvine links. They're SO inspiring! As always, thanks for sharing them with us every day!!
While I was dragging the garbage down what feels like a 50 mile driveway, I noticed that my Daffodils are about 6 inches high now! And my dear little Hyacinths didn't get damaged from those frosts we had!! I was certain that they were toast!!
In about two weeks it might be safe for us to pull back the mulch from fall that protected all of our perennials, you think? So far, no snow here today, but that wind? Whew! It will cut right through you. I'm glad you don't have to go anywhere either today. Stay in and enjoy yourself!!
By the way, I love Kentucky too. SO glad I moved here instead of the other places I was thinking of!! Best place to retire, in my opinion!! Who ever said that retirees never move north are pure idiots!! ROFLMBO!!
I love those Godvines, and that was probably the only real time I wanted to reach into the computer and slap that ole' fart for making fun of them. However, I knew he was viewing them (and secretly getting a happy moment) by the way he knew what they were. lol Sure miss that ole fart. Mostly the interaction between him and AW, they took us back and inspired us of our memories, whether we experienced them, our parents did, or grandparents. They were very interesting. I think he ended up liking this thread more than the rest, not that I know how many he posted. He didn't get those 36,000+ from 2009 staying on the Scottsville forum. lol
Like you I am watching my flowers and rose bushes for signs of new life. I can't wait to smell the earth again, digging and pruning etc...but most of all those beautiful flowers and scents to enjoy outdoors and in your house. Another thing I stop to show gratitude to the Creator. They brighten even the darkest moments. Can't wait.
I love Kentucky with a passion. Of course my Dad and ancester were from the mining towns in Eastern Ky but he was a military man his whole life and being overseas and other states in our great country it was always known we would settle back in the Bluegrass state. He retired at Fort Knox and most of the family live in the general area, even those who did their military time. Even when I flew the coop and moved a couple different times, I always came home. HOME is where the HEART is and for my family it is Kentucky. I am glad you and lala made it your home too. It is America's best kept secret. Let them all move to Florida. hahaha
