A beautiful sunny morning

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Sat Jan 31, 2009 4:03 pm

It's a beautiful sunny morning and the temps are climbing so soon I shall go outside and see what I can find to get into today. Yesterday it was sunny so we went and cleaned up the branches that we dragged over here last week. We will use the big pieces for kindling wood and eventually cut the small stuff for mulch. Right now the birds are enjoying it. They climb through it and under it looking for bugs, etc. I doubt they will find much. The cats are staying away thanks to some well placed water spray.
We bought a lawn table and four chairs last week. They had been stored outside for sometime under a tree. They were covered with a green mold so yesterday, I washed them down with a soapy bleach water. dr washed them off with a hose. I think when it is a bit warmer they will receive a coat of paint. They are metal with a heavy plastic ribbing for seats. We are going to purchase a set of cushions for the chairs. There isn't an umbrella but it will be on the porch anyway so we aren't worried about that at all. Whole set was just ten dollars.
We bought a large dining room set from the same lady. It only has five chairs but that's okay, too. I want to recover the seats. The lady offered some green upholstery material but I'm not sure I want green. The color matches the china cabinet pretty close so if we get it fixed up we'll have part of a set anyway. dr says we are collecting too much again so we are going to stop for awhile. (Yeh, right)
I finished with the rose bushes and they are looking better. They are getting lots of new leaves. I was thinking of feeding them but maybe it's still too early for it. I'm not sure when roses start to bloom here. I know they bloomed early in Arizona before the weather got hot. It will be interesting to see what kind of blooms they get. I could ask Glenda but I'd kind of like the surprise, I think. The little narcissus blooms disappeared. Do animals eat them? Glenda has been losing some plants, too. She thinks something is digging hers because the whole plants are gone. She says it is not something, but someone.
I might start digging some flower beds because I will have to do it slowly or my knees will protest big time. When we are ready for the garden we will find a place to rent a tiller, I think. I am NOT digging a whole garden. I can finish cutting back those big weeds along the fence line too and make a compost place in the back corner. I cut some thistles yesterday and fed them to the goat. The horses ate a few but I think the goat got the most of them. I'll run out of weeds and things to feed them pretty soon. They have food but do like a snack now and then. They do like apple peels and cores and carrots, too. No wonder they hang around the fence when I go outside.
So, with the temps climbing and the sun shining why am I still here on the computer. I'm out of here.

I hope you remembered to breathe in there somewhere, dooley. I don't know who might be eating your narcissus. No animals around here touch those. I hope you solve the little mystery.
