A Crazy Winter

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Fri Jan 19, 2018 3:35 am

Well friends January is half over and I'm glad because the other day we had a snow storm? that was nothing but a waste.
The wild birds are driving me crazy for wild seed.
In fact when the feeder is empty they fly into my balcony door to make noise.
Don't worry its never to hard of a hit to hurt them.
I've been taking the tree and decorations but my helper has been sick for a couple of days.
My keets are fast asleep and I' going to join them after I finish this.
My Summer flower plants are coming alive which I will let you see.
Sleep warm

Crazy Weather

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Sun Jan 14, 2018 9:55 pm

Hi friends and welcome to a crazy NJ weather.
Last Friday it was 68 degrees and I finally got to remove the decorations from Christmas.
The keets were out enjoying themselves but not today and we have more snow coming Tues. or Wed. and I'm ready for Spring.
The reason for this post is my old bird bath developed a nasty crack so it goes away and in its loss I got a new bath which is a little smaller but like the old one its heated.
I checked it this morning and the heater was working as there was smoke but the water wasn't hot.
I brought it upstairs so its not to hard to keep up and I will be mounting it when the weather gets better.

Where is Spring?

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Sat Jan 06, 2018 4:01 am

Hi friends and welcome to a frozen NJ.
Its almost 11 Pm and right after I get off here Im in bed.
Went out today and that was a problem because right after I locked my front door I remembered I left my keys up stairs.
I do have a lockbox on my door for the emergency people.
I spent more on food for the keets and wild birds.
If I was still working this would a day to call in sick but I did go to work on these days.
Sleep warm friends.

FINALLY

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Thu Jan 04, 2018 8:20 pm

Well friends we finally got some snow but I think its starting to slack off.
Looking outside it looks like its done but with the super high winds you can't tell and I think there's about 6"on the ground.
I did all my running last night so me and the keets are in nice and warm.
I ordered a airtight container with wheels for wild bird seed and it came this morning and I'm so happy I did.
I know its bad when the Snow is blowned up against the sliding balcony door.
Sleep warm

JUST WAITING

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Wed Jan 03, 2018 1:51 am

Hi friends went to doctor today just for a checkup.
The good man said I was ok but I have to stop smoking.
I must be good cause he doesn't want to see me for 4 months.
Now to the weather and were expecting maybe 4" of snow.
I know other people out there get much more,but here in NJ drivers don't drive THEY AIM for you.
Maybe by Monday the temp will go above freezeing.
I have food but I'm running out but hope to go shopping on Friday.
The Parakeets are putting me through hell by wanting to go out.
I try to explain to them (I'm going crazy)that it looks nice but its TOOO cold for them.
This afternoon I put them out for almost a minute and they were having a great time,but now they're fast asleep.

Cold New Year

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Tue Jan 02, 2018 4:03 am

Happy New Year from a frozen New Jersey.
Friends its 19 outside at 10:30 and thank goodness for night time as Frick & Frack want to go outside and if not they BOTH scream so I can't take my nap.
I watched the Mummers parade (The Phila parade) and I don't think it was as good as past years,although it was in the teens all day.
Tomorrow is my visit to the Dr.so I will keep you informed of what pain he wants me to have.
Its almost 11:00 and the A_ _hole has his 3 year old son still awake pounding in their apartment which causes my apartment to move.
At 11:00 I can and will call the Police.
They are talking about a coastal storm Wed, to Thurs.
and that track with the cold we do get MUCH snow.
I hope not so sleet warm

Where is Spring

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Fri Dec 29, 2017 3:43 am

Well friends I show 23 degrees but my weather equipment is off,(to be replaced next Spring.)
It took me till 3PM to be able to walk to the corner store.
For the first time since I got Frick & Frack they sat by the balcony door and they didn't go out since I was to sick so they were fairly quiet so I could sleep.
Its 75 inside and they are both asleep and I'm going to join them after I get off here.

It's COLD!!!!!

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Thu Dec 28, 2017 4:40 am

Well friends its late and after this I'm going to follow the babies.
I can't believe that its 27 outside and also I can remember when I would stand outside in 1 location for times up to 1 hour for telephone work.
I have 2 pictures of something I first remembered when I was 6 years old and although these are not the original they are the same to me
sleep warm.
