That being said, the snow was beautiful as long as you didn't have to try driving in traffic or walking on a sidewalk. I also got my foot tangled in a blanket and fell A over TC at Able and Kari's house. Happily the fall did not hurt the knee again, just my pride. The knee is fine now, after a couple of days of wrapping and ibuprofen. All is well.
After weeks of procrastination I have taken action and have spoken to two or three people about building a set of steps for my front porch. That will be finished soon. I also bought a couple more arches for the wild wisteria. It turns out they are too short. Either the measurements given on the net were incorrect or else I measured incorrectly. Either way one will go somewhere else in the yard and the other will be returned (anyone in need of a lovely arch for you garden?) and I will try again. I wish I could find one or two just like the one I have in that spot already, but it was from Atwoods and they order different stuff every year. *sigh* I try to pull things together but don't ever seem to really make it happen. Oh, I also discovered that my fountain has a large chunk/crack in it, which explains why it wouldn't hold water for long. No, I did not hit it with anything but it will need to be repaired. I'll do that today if all goes well. Entropy is in the lead around here I am afraid. I do have lots of British blood in my lineage so I will keep 'bashing on' with a will toward winning.
I am in a funk about something. I probably need sunshine and fresh air or something simple like that. Feeling a little left-footish of late. Ah, self-pity is an ugly thing, like slogging through deep mud. I will try to climb out of it. Thanks for being a listening ear for me, Christal. Also, I tend to bug my children when I get like this, sadly. That doesn't help anything either. I believe I would be safe in saying that my Audra would be happy for me to move away and stay there at this point. Sorry, dear. Having a rough week is all. Try not to take it personally; it is my problem, not yours.
OKAY…enough of that. I am donning coat and hat against the 'brisk north wind' this morning and going for a ramble with the cats in the great outdoors. Who knows what wonders await me there.
Let me see…searching for something wonderful to report….oh! My yellow crocus are up and blooming here and there. That's a good thing.
I will look for more.
I will water the gardens.
I will mulch around the young trees in Maggie's Wood.
I will look for blossoms on the Quince.
I will. (wish me luck)
