Spring in the country

I’ve had a bit of a bug that last couple of days..feeling better today.

News reporter from KCCI TV in Des Moines died yesterday…She had been with the station for 29 years…I’m feeling really bad about it – anchors were having a bad time of it last night when they had to annouce the death.  I guess the woman has been coming into my living room for 29 years, it is okay to have a hurt spot in my heart for her.

He is out working on the mower….He came in for a drink of water and i asked him what was going on…he said,  I’M TRYING TO GET THE BLADES OFF THE MOWER TO SHARPEN THEM … A 15 MINUTE JOB HAS TAKEN ME TWO HOURS ….

He cut off a pipe and stuck the plier thingys in the end then had me come out and push one way while he was unloosening the other and they came off :: brilliant::

It is so green and the flowers in the flower beds are coming up nicely…

It is time to get mulch around the trees and mulch the beds and pull weeds that are already taking over 😦

My other issue today is how am I to kill all the little spring ants on the counter now that I have frick and frat…can’t be putting ant poison out…

Billy and Benny have taken control of the side by side windows in the computer room.  They are totally content although there is a breeze from the west today and Benny the little one looks like he is encoutering a tornado when he tries to get to the window…once he is there he is set but he crouches down low and the wind blows his hair and his ears go back and he forges ahead…extremely funny – guess you have to be here.

Until next time….
